Depends on the spare parts for sure. 25inch es bar 50.00 bucks case 40.00 what eles he got?
Jay, it would have to come with 4 bars, 8 new chains and an electric chain sharpener for me to take that. :lol: Its just too close to new price to not go new, in my opinion. Dealer support may also improve if it was purchased local. To me, I am looking to get 20 years out of my 361 - a hunnert bucks is NOT the deal breaker. At $300, I would be sniffing hard.
I got 525.00 for mine 20 inch bar and case......Really helps on the resale side to have a pro stihl. It will never go that cheap! ;-)
'round here $300 MS361's are pretty whupped.
Not $300, but....
And this one looks new:
Buy it now at $400 - but it looks to have some miles.
Thats why I ask the question? oh your not paying taxes either..... :cheese: Thats not as nice as that one.
I am just glad that I have a saw that is worth darn near what I paid for it new. :lol:
Thats why I am not affraid to buy any stihl pro saw. I made money on my 361 and used it soild for a year. If I am not sure I will keep one, then I just keep it very clean and always use the case. In the 880 I had to use a blanket. lol
In my next life, I want to come back as one of your chainsaws.
Your luck it would be my 460 road hard and put away wet....But it would take a bullet for me to every get rid of it.
That explains my current life.
Redd, I'm envisioning every idiot in these stores that come up and ask if they can help you find something.
I like to play the game with them and then show them where the stuff is actually at.
HD when they started out actually hired PT contractors who were inbetween/out of work. Made for a great business model, of course they eventually figured out paying 15$/hr vs minimum wage idiots was more cost effective
Could be worse Jags, you could've been tied up behind the woodshed for years like my 034 was... lol
Get the 290. take care of it, good sharp chain. It is up to the task.
They talk about these pro saws getting their money back but a good looking 290 will get you a few bucks back too.
In a couple year put something with it and get another, or upgrade a bit.
Or take it to the drag strip.
290 is one of few mid-level saws with a ton of aftermarket support.
NWP also makes an aftermarket 039/390 top end now too!
well i guess since you all say its not worth 550$ i will hold off for a better deal.
any idea how much a 362 new is?
$709 with a 20" bar
Yea there a little out of touch......Now your not paying taxs on that 550.00 either....lol
no tax here, anyhow maybe i will look into a new 362 if i cant find something by spring early summer. i wanna cut 10 or so cords, and my poulan a and craftsman and homelite and other poulan are about wore out.
Nyyfan I have a 460 bought it because it was bigger than the 455. I run a 20 inch bar with a Carlton pro chain on it. I love the saw. I bought it from tsc online and have it serviced at my local dealer. You will not be disappointed.
