Spotted a nice complete C-72 on an auctioneers website.It is clean with a shiny bar so appears to have been used rather than at the bottom of a junk pile. Bar is 20 to 24 inches long.Is this a good model to cut serious timber with or does it have issues?
C-72 in good shape should be a good saw, just vintage (old) and fairly heavy. But most of the C Series saws were pretty good stuff as far as I know. I never knew of any chronic issues that amounted to much.
We'll get some more input from others I'm sure.

I don't have a C72,that one eludes me,but I do have a C71 & several other C series saws & they are absolute bears! I've never hear of any issues with these saws other than just being heavy,but that can work to your advantage.Just let the weight of the saw do the work for you.
Well,as it turns out I'll be going to bid on the C-72.I want to check the bottom of case for corrosion, inside of fuel tank,recoil and compression. The owner should be there so maybe I can get some idea of how it ran for him. I'm thinking $75 to $100 might be my price range. Any thoughts out there?
