Took a chance on a saw and bought without having a look at it. It looks like a real gem from the pictures. Friday night it should be here. Can't hardly wait! Suspense!!

It's a classic! Wife's picking it up on her way back from picking up our granddaughter. Have to really bag it up as she has to put it in the trunk of her car :o

Looking forward to photos.  I would have guessed anything over 90 cc as you seem to have been bitten by the big bore bug.

I hear ya Mike! Iím only going for the Huskies and Jreds now unless it something I can use as a trading tool. Iím going to divest of all the old macs and pioneers and some homelites. I have about 60 Iím not really interested in but pretty much had to take them all. Should make a few bucks on them

Great find with the 2100, you never know what falls into your lap when you're not looking.
Like this low hour 1989 044AV I found last year, I don't plan on making money selling it, only money earned cutting with it  :D

Truly a man after my own heart! I didn't exactly abandon Huskies, but early on in the game Jonsereds won me over too. And 15yrs ago, they were easier to find and pay for over the bigger Huskies. Love me the bigger cc Jonsereds!

But then again, my heart kinda stops a few beats when I see an original, clean unmolested 2100/2101...lol! I bet that's the condition you're getting.;D

Well if the photos donít lie it looks good in that regard. The fellow isnít a chainsaw guy and said it was hard to start, too heavy and way too much saw for him. Just what I want to hear, lol

Nothing wrong with the Jreds at all. The ones I have are excellent saws. The 820 and 2065 both are just as good quality. A couple of the others need some work but so do the huskies.
