Pretty clean for the age and complete. It could use some tlc.When it runs it idles a bit high and it wants to stall with chain brake on. It does smoke some when it first starts. It seems to have plenty of power and revs up well. I havent messed with the saw to try and fix anything.
Its rather clean for the age. Its a very well built machine.
