McCULLOCH 10-10s saw

SearsmanJune 5, 2005

I got a nice looking Pro MAC 10-10s a few weeks ago and was wondering what thoughts there are about this saw. The only thing wrong with it was the muffler was lose. It seems there was a gasket but it is gone. I just tightened the muffler to block untill I can find one if I need one. The thing runs very good and has plenty of power. I picked up a used 24 inch bar and chain for this saw and it had enough power to really make that big bar work. Anyone know what this saw sold for new?

Don't remember their cost, they were about to the end of their production when I first started in this buisiness. Low revving by todays standards but lots of torque, you can bog them down a bunch compared to todays saws. Heavy and no anti-vibe, your body will know its had a work out after using one for a while. But just the same, it was near the top of its size class at the time

The 10-10 was one of the last saws Mac built which built the Mac name. They pretty much went down hill after that.

It was a good reliable saw. I would question it would have the power to pull a 24 inch bar as it is a 3.3 or a 3.55 cubic inch saw. If it has a compression release it is the 3.55 if not it is a 3.3 cu. inch saw. Last ones I saw sold for around $359.95. The saw didn't have a gasket that fit around the muffler bolts rather it set in a recess in the port. Part no. is 84007. Later Butch

Thanks for the info. The saw has compression release so I know what size it is. The owners manual says it can take up to a 28 inch bar? I had the 24 bar sunk all the way to cut though at least a 30 inch log, I was impressed by how fast it cut. The 28 incher if I ever found one cheap would be too much and the 24 is Plenty for me. I was pretty wiped out after a few hours running this saw but that big bar looked impressive going though the wood!

Thanks again, Wes

I was searching on the web for the McCulloch Pro MAC 10-10S because I inherited my fathers which has had very little use. However the oil tank cover was loose and I am wondering if the gasket is OK so I was trying to search for a gasket part and I also was trying to find a manual for it since I do not know what the fuel to oil ratio mixture is for it. I own a couple of Stihl's and they are 50:1 and I believe these older saws did not have this ratio. If anyone has a manual that they have scanned in PDF and would be willing to share it would be great.

Thanks for any insight that you may have.

Thanks for your help.

The company I work for has a patnership with McCulloch for US parts distribution on new equipment and all support of models that were made before 1999.... if you call the 18004236302 number on your saw or owners manual you'd get us at DixieSales. I'm in charge of MCC there and checked all thru everything we have from the factory and no owners book, (the number of the book, however incase you find one is 93249). I do have an IPL however on microfiche, (card 21).

The 10-10 and 10-10 Super are fairly old, and your ratio is 32:1... unit was made from August 1967 to May 1970. Hope this helps!! db

They are good saws and very strong. I have one that I used for a long time and never found a tree it couldn't chew up and spit out. I still have mine but need a flywheel for it. I somehow managed to reem out the center of it. If you all know anyone that has one or know where I could get one, I would be very grateful. But, even with it broke down, I still wouldn't get rid of it.

I have a Mac 10-10a that I just acquired...but I don't have a manual for it. My question is- do I need to oil the large rubber & mesh filter that goes between the black cover & the compartment that covers the carb? I think it was oiled before, but it won't run with the filter on.

About 15 yrs ago I got a 1010s that my kids ordered new for my Christmas gift. It called for a 24" bar but, my son got the 20" with it( extra power). It had never let me down and had out cut the other saws people was using on side of me. If it didn't start by the 3rd-4th pull, I checked or changed the spark plug. This past 8 months it quit running and wouldn't start. (I'm sure it the carb). If it never runs again still wouldn't get rid of ole faithful.
