Your new to you saw looks very much like an Echo built unit.
If so, it wont matter if it was built in China.
Fair play it will live a long long time.
They are not the fastest or fanciest but they do last forever.

I just did some digging into mfr, it looks like built by Zhejiang Pioneer Machinery & Electron Co., Ltd., of China, and imported by MTD. My old Craftsman is 36cc with 16" bar, I'm not going for really big trees so it has served me well. I pretty much just go for Pinyon pine, plenty of dead fallen and dead standing trees, most are 12" diameter or less.

My uncle had saw case like that for his big Jonsereds... it had a second scabbard, and when he set the saw in the case, the second scabbard held his 36" bar, while the 20" bar was on the saw. Both scabbards were the same length, the second bar just fit through the handle on the left side of the saw...

Anybody have any critical reports on the MS660 and 070/090 clones?

Took the saw for a test ride today, I like it! Starts easier than old saw (less pulling), chain does not get slack every 15 minutes, and best of all, I could set it down to move a few logs and not have to re-start it!
