yep a pair of partner 5000+'s:bounce:
been wanting one for quite a while and then i stumble on to a pair at a yard sale:smile1:
for those who aren't quite up to speed on chainaws, the partner 5000 plus's are known to be strong saws. well ahead of their time in respect to power (the most important), weight and balance. these saws will keep right up to any new 50cc chainsaw and will respond extremly well to any modifications done.
they both needed the carbs cleaned and rebuilt, fuel lines and plugs but they are good runners now. i'll be selling one and keeping the other, just no idea what one i'mma gonna sell:confuse:.

the dog isn't for sale:D thats my boy!

woops! didn't see the reply email to this:blush2:
partner is an italian company that has buit chainsaws for almost everybody. they had some extremly good saws and some not so good. not bad or crap, just not stellar.:smile1:
these 5000 plus's were among some of the best they ever produced. even by todays standards, these saws are still as fast or faster than todays 50cc options. the balance and handling is basicly outstanding against some of the more expensive new models out now and they make one heck of a good racer without too much done to them.
the topend can be mounted onto a husqvarna 50/51 to make a very quick chainsaw out of the husky without having to go through bunch porting. people want the jug off these saws pretty bad if they're in good shape.:smile1:
one of them i have was made (labeled for) pioneer. i assume it was when electrolux bought them out just after they bought out pioneer and husqvarna.
elux bought alot of really good names and turned them into trash, poulan being one of them as well. they bought others, but i don't have the time or temper to get into a list of the names and co's that 'they' ruined.

it's a mcculloch 5-10E.
yep, it's electric start:D
i rebuilt the battery pack using 1500mah nicad's (it had 1000's originaly), and totaly went through the rest of it with a bunch of new parts. it didn't really need them, but i had them anyway. it runs fantastic, and is very strong.
i like the looks i get when i just push the switch and it fires to life:rolling:
why tug on a cord when you can push a button?:bounce:
not many 5-10E's out there. not many sold. they sold a handfull of the 1-10E and
3-10E's but not many people splurged the extra $114 for the 70cc'er.
fun saw, but i wouldn't want to spend the day cutting with it. it'll rattle your hands off.
no really! your hands will fall right off after an hour or 2 of use. happened to me a few times:madhop:
