To me the beauty of an old chainsaw is similar to that of a steam train. Not exactly beautiful, but really, really cool in an antique mechanical kind of way. For looks, I like the 50's era gear drive saws, with those bulbous solid nose bars running 1/2" chain. For actual use I like the big saws from the 60's to the 80's. A Super XL 925 or a Pioneer/Partner P45 are much more of a joy to run.

An orchestra can not stand only with contrabass, bassoon, trombone, but does with violin, clarinet and cornet, sometimes accompanied by a tiny triangle.

Good morning my friend and thanks! Twins sound really fantastic to us don't they! Especially yours has 180 degrees alternative ignition, which makes very identical sound.

One other thing that I notice, plastic just doesn't look half as nice as metal. I kind of suspect that a modern saw with more magnesium and less plastic would sell well if they could keep the price reasonable. The Chinese appear to be selling a lot of knockoff 070's, so there's still some demand for old school muscle saws.

Hello Remle, yes it seems! and I love the design of 070 series.
