I still have a Super XL. That saw I do not use since many of my newer saws cut much faster, weigh less, and don't stall every time you lay them down hot.
I was a Homelite mechanic in the 60s. I also worked for Asplundh as a tree climber and at that time, all our saws were those cursed Homelites. I don't how many times I'd be hanging from a tree, have one stall and then damn near kill myself trying to get it going again.

That all being said, my old Sthil 040, 045, and 030 are still very useful. Much more so then any of my old XL12s, XL101s, etc. Saws like the 60s-70s Stihls is what put Homelite and Mac out of business.

To this day - I still have to rate my early 80s Sthil 045AV as the best pro saw I've ever owned and I'm still using it. My new Dolmar is 64 ccs and my old Stihl 045AV is 87 ccs. I'd say they are near equals in cutting power and speed. But - my Sthil is 30 years old and runs great. I'm going to have to wait until 2042 and see if my Dolmar is still running before I can compare fairly. And, I'm sure I'll be long-dead by then.
