Just picked this up to help around the house. Other than a bit of stumble when cold and broken plastic guard it is in great shape. I took out two mulberry trees and some other things around the yard.

A bit of research shows this as an Echo built saw.  Found a couple Deere service manuals on eBay that I will watch.

Nope... It runs great and cheaper than an Stihl that I could find.

I've had a CS452 and now a CS510EVL that is close to 30 yrs old and is still easy to start and runs well.

I have several pieces of  ECHO equip-chain saw, string trimmer, blower. Most are 10 years old and still running great.

It will eventually get a carb clean/rebuild once I get a service manual.  According to the user manual there are three saws that share the same basic design - 51SV, 55SV, and 65SV.  I will grab the serial and see if I can tell when it was produced.

Yea the JD saws were produced by ECHO at that time and were pretty dang good saws. That should be a mid to late 80's era production date.
