Saw I really want to like but...

Stihl 011_AVT

A friend of the family dropped this off years ago after it was dropped out of a tree and handle broke. It sat out in the barn needing some luv for years.

I recently sold my Stihl 025 thinking this will be a good time to work on the 011. Starting to think I shoulda held on to the 025. Sure the 11 is a little lighter and handier. But even after disassembling the carb and finding the fuel inlet clogged cleaning and reassemble... this is a hard starting little bugger.

Once its warmed up it runs out nice and will likely improve once its burned a few tanks. Yet so far cold starts are another issue. Oils like crazy so thats a plus. Trimmed some low branches in the yard to make mowing easier and ran great in all sorts of odd positions. So seals are probably good.
