Homelite EZ-250 Automatic Chainsaw Runs Great & Looks Good C140
Up for sale is a Homelite EZ-250 Chainsaw. This saw looks decent and runs well. This saw is somewhat uncommon and is the only saw Homelite produced with automatic chain adjusting. This saw does require a special "Tension-Rite" bar, which is included, but the tip is a bit tight. It rotates, but gets hot so the rivets may be compressed just a bit too tight. See the video below of the saw running and a description of the work that was done.
- 2.5 CU inch (41cc) engine
- Excellent compression
- New fuel hose
- New fuel cap vent valve
- New oil cap vent valve
- New air filter grommet
- Carburetor rebuilt
- Automatic chain oiler
- Easy starting (4-5 pulls cold, 1 pull hot)
When I refurbish a saw, I start by addressing any mechanical issues it may have. I replace any parts missing or worn out. Items such as air filters, sprockets, fuel lines, spark plugs, fuel filters, etc…will not be re-used if they are worn out! Once the saw is running properly, I tear it down and thoroughly clean all the parts. This removes the years of grease and grime that restrict air-flow (which in a 2-stroke engine can be fatal). Once everything is cleaned, I re-assemble the saw and give it a final test-run. It’s not just a “clean it up to sell it quick”; the saw's are in good usable shape when I’m done with them! I’ve been working on old Homelite’s and McCulloch’s for over 15 years now. The upside for potential bidders is that I do this because I enjoy it and therefore you can rest assured that the work is done right!
