Default Nice storage unit find

My dad is getting older and I guess heís realizing he wonít be using most of the tools heís acquired Iíve the years so Iíve been helping him by selling them. Iíve kept a few things but sold a lot well I found this little gem. Paper work says 1987 and it looks new. Iím guessing it has only a few hours on it. Came with all the paper work.

Those were the top of the line back then. I knew several older men who had them and paid some of us younger guys to use them.
If I remember right they are loud as hell

I used to use one exactly like that when I installed fireplaces, they make short work of 2X6s and OSB.

If I needed the framers to re-frame something and they didnít want to, Iíd just fire that dude up and theyíd come runnin!

Y’all think I should trash the case and buy a carry bag from amazon or keep the old case? It’s in ok functional condition just doesn’t look as clean and nice as the saw itself.

I have had a number of them over the years. I heard they are designed to last 17 hours of run time. And I kinda believe it, as none of mine lasted long.

I'd keep the hard case to keep extra chains, file, saw wrench, and any other extra stuff. Easier to clean than a soft case. Duct tape will cover holes and soft spots good enough till it completely wears out. Why throw something away that can still be used.
