    I'll give you $40 for it... That'll be a 100% profit or a 36500% annualized return on your $20 investment. Don't even need a test drive...

    But wait, their is more!

    In addition to the 066 for $20, I picked up a pair of 028's that run for $30. Though one has a broken rear handle and the other is missing a brake handle.

    Stihl of the week. There, I fixed it. :p

    I think this qualifies for the all-time CL bargain hall-of-fame. Third pull? Really? :mad:

    I think it would have started on the second pull. I tried one pull on full choke and it popped. Flipped the Master Lever up and it popped again and almost ran. Checked the lever and it had gone to the 2nd position by mistake. Made sure it was on high idle and it started right up. :)

    That's all I've had time to do with the saws so far. Got to tear it apart to check it over and clean everything right.

    Usually I try to start negotiating at about 1/2 of asking price. But this time I met the guy in the parking lot of a Free Masons convention. Once he started one of the saws guys wore drawn to his tail gate like flies to vinegar. There was 10 guys around the saws before I knew it.

    Couldn't risk someone else offering more so I got the money out quick, said they look good grabbed the 066 first and headed back to my car!!!

    I don't think I could have offered him less with a straight face.

    I have no concern that it was stolen. Just an older guy cleaning out his barn. He was the deputy grand pooh bah or some such of the local masons.
