Anyone know about a stihl 3800?


Recommended Posts

I picked one up for free, no chain or pull cord. It's a stihl 3800, there's nothing on Google, thought there might be maybe one page but nothing. It's probably 30+ years old at a guess. 


Will I still be able to get a chain and pull chord do you think?


Anybody know this saw?

yup, that'll be a 'stihl' copy straight from china


bin it


Yeh just noticed sticker said sthil and not stihl after I posted. I think it's a Husqvarna clone, the flywheels look very similar. I'll need to take off the flywheel and see if there are any part numbers on it.


I'd still like to try and get it going.

Its not a clone of any recognised manufacturer im afraid. These were brought out several years ago under various chinese internet 'brands' then the same model was cloned to be a fake stihl, although aside from the colour scheme it looked nothing like any current stihl model.


It will never run or if it does it will never run right for long.


With respect, they are just landfill....which really annoys me.

I'm pretty sure I found a starter for it. 



Application: Fit on Chainsaw 38CC Note Please allow 1-3mm error due to manual measurement. Due to the difference...



But you say it's junk, I couldn't even resell it, wouldn't do for firewood cutting, it must be able to do something?
