I bought my grandfathers property last December and acquired some of his tools in the process. He passed away September before last - so it's hard to figure out the age of some items. I recently discovered a very well taken Homelite Super XL chainsaw and need help figuring out where to get a manual. I'd also like to know the age and if any parts are available for it. 

 

It has the following markings:

 

Homelite Textron

UT NO. 10045C 

SER NO. HK1320047

 

It is red, and although I didn't measure the bar - it is a fair size. It's dirty in the pictures... mainly because I used it to cut a few trees down along with numerous tree tops and a few storm damaged trees. It's a hefty feeling machine with lots of torque. I'm used to using Dad's Stihl which seems to crank more RPM's.. but doesn't seem to power quite like this machine. 

 

Anyways, I didn't think it would start - considering the last time it was used was probably 10 years ago if not much longer. I'm assuming it must date back into the 90's.. but any help identifying a year would be great. 

 

Thanks! 

 

Nick

Need parts?  Click HERE

 

I've got an old McCullough (circa 1970) in the shop now..  Needless to say parts are hard to find..  

 

Here's a manual but not for the same Model..  Maybe it will help..  Take a LOOK

Dad had one of those a long time ago. It was a great saw. Plenty of power as I recall.

Best saw I ever owned was a Homelite C-55. Have no idea of age, somewhat heavy compared to todays plastic ones but a wood cutting little devil. Had it 10 yrs and changed starter rope once and the plug once. Cut 8-10 cord a yr and it didn't owe me a dime.

I wonder what year mine is?

 

What is the difference in the Super XL and Super XL Auto?

 

Aside from the bar paint being worn off.. the saw is actually REALLY exceptional. I will have to take a picture after I clean it up and repost. It's very dirty from cutting, and is about to get dirtier in a few. I need to cut up a bunch of Pine Tree limbs that I dropped so I could get my Bolens HT and Dad's BX around the trees without snagging the ROPS or ripping one of us off our tractors lol. I used the Yellow Poland weed eater with a pole saw attachment to drop them. Talk about making life easy! Although it's awkward trying to dodge big heavy limbs with a chainsaw on a long stick lol. 

 

Thanks again,

Nick

 

p.s. Do I have to use Homelite Oil? Sorry for such a newbie question... but i've never really mixed fuel for anything else in the past. I usually just steal dad's gas when i'm using his stuff. I've never had to mix any for my own stuff. Also, any suggestions on a Spark Plug, and where can I get a replacement plug wire... or maybe just the boot? The boot is cracked and it doesn't seem to snap firmly onto the plug. It doesn't effect it running, but I suppose it could pop off fairly easily.

Found some Homelite Oil and mixed it to the 32:1 as the bottle required. However, the saw seemed to run and start 1000x better when I had it (just a small amount) running on the 50:1 Stihl mix for dad's MS250. Any idea if I would hurt anything running a different mixture?

 

Thanks,

Nick

Try ebay for a manual,  I use synthetic oil that makes one mix for everything, but then again I have over 30 saws. :D
