    FS: Stihl 010AV Chainsaw

    I have 2 chainsaws and this wee beauty isn't getting used.

    It's a wee Stihl 010 AV. It's a 37cm3 big block.
    Huge 14" bar with a chain that hasn't seen much work.
    Only used it for pruning around the place, and seeing as I've now pruned every thing down to ground level, there's nothing left to cut with it.
    Early non chain brake model.

    Really, the only brand of saw to get - "You'll only need one"

    $200 + freight

    I did - didn't go well
    Ended up with Stihl - haven't looked back



    It's very much like the good 'ole Ford - Holden debate. Which by the way Ford wins

    Here's a few pics.
    Sorry haven't cleaned it up. Only thought about trying to sell the wee honey tonight. It's been sitting in my garage, having a little rest.

    Do you know how old it is?

    Haha as far as the Stihl-Husky debates go Husky doesnt stand a chance, Ive got my old mans Stihl he bought brand new long before my time still goes hard an shes plowed a fair amount of timber. My saws a 660 magnum, thrown an bashed around just keeps goin an goin, starts no trouble cold or even after shes been in the shed for a few months.

    Ive never owned and never will own a Husky but from what Ive seen they are temperamental, unreliable and a dog to handle

    I thought Husky's were gutless useless piece of junk. But, after using the father in laws 280xp im well impressed with it a.

    Its a tad heavy for pruning though

    Wouldn't have a clue sorry BF
    They were originally introduced in 1978 overseas, but I doubt this 1 is that old. I'd hazard a guess though and say mid to late '80s.
    The colours of orange/black probably help to date it, but I don't know exactly when Stihl changed to the later orange/white/black.
    My other saw (034AV) is the later colours and I got that in the early '90s.
    Might be some smart nut out there that knows.

    I have both and rate them well. My 24'" Stihl would have to be 35yrs and Sthil going well. The 14" Husky is a strong little bugger and certainly performs to it's ability. mind you it is only 4yrs old.

    use a wee echo 12"for high work "precision woodworking",then have my two beloved old timer Homelite XL12s for heavier work. Yes both early 70s saws,one I've rebuilt.
    Temperamental but when they do decide to let rip shes a hoot.also have a Talon bloody temperamental mongrel.
    .hold up before shit gets flung -this combination suits me ok and does the jobs i ask of them.i also have a drawer fullof xl12 parts and the workshop manual for all homelite equipment.
    Cambo -that saw is identical to a stihl 009 bought to me to fix recently.the single difference in yours is the handle styling ,suggesting its the model following.anyhow after shagging about it seems the carbn eeded a complete recondition so i recommended Barry Foster do the job.bloody nice wee unit all the same.

    I think the 009 has a top handle set up and a slightly smaller motor as well as well.
    The 010 I have runs real nice.
    I got it a while ago with the intentions of using it for trimming the branches off the firewood trees after I felled them.
    But never got round to using it much at all. Couldn't put my 034 down lol.

    I think it's pretty much sold.
    Waiting on a guy to get over from the coast this coming week.
