I need the nylon gear that the electric motor drives, has the small spur
gear on the side that drives the chain. I tried searching on Google and
Yahoo for "McCulloch electric chain saw parts" and get nothing useful. Lots
of hits for gas Mccullochs parts. Any other search suggestions?
Sounds about like us although town is large enough to have at least a
small engine repair shop that carries or can get parts for most brand
I guess lacking that my next step would be to go directly to
McCulloch--I presume there's some service/repair center info w/ the
owner's manual? Failing that, I'd go to the phone book for the larger
town and find the dealer/distributor there.
Of course, if it's just a low-cost "homeowner" saw it may not be
cost-effective or if it's very old parts may not be available. I don't
have any McCulloch stuff (all "green" :) ) so don't know how they are
for that sort of thing.
The advantage of the "all green" scenario is while initial price is
higher than some alternatives, the dealer is here and parts are
available in a day or two at most, even for very old stuff...
SOL for the most part. McColloch has been out of business since the early 90s.
I have a McC electric that I have been nursing along but it is mostly "what
will fit" from other manufacturers. The idea of finding a mom and pop lawn
equipment shop is right though. Just don't expect to get lucky at the first 10
or so ;-)
Back from the dead huh? I guess MTD bought the name. They don't seem to have
any reference to the old McC products on that page. I know a few years ago when
I was looking for parts, the consensus was there wasn't any McCulloch.
Thanks to all that responded. I did not know Mcculloch was out of business.
Must be why I had so much trouble finding parts suppliers. Also why I was
able to get them at an auction so cheap! I bought two, one is cheaply made
home user type with the stripped plastic gear, and the other is a better
made more commercial-looking unit that does not seem to have any plastic
I will try the two sources recomended by "Greg O" and "Bumtracks"
