    Craigslist posting...

    This is a NEW chainsaw that I have never used.

    SHINDIAWA 757 MAGNUM - 74cc - 5.4hp

    It was $879.99 plus TAX $62.40 = $942.39

    SACRAFICE $575

    More Powerful than STIHL MS440 HUSQVARNA 372xp JONSERED CS-2171 MAKITA 6421

    To the person who has been flagging this listing please STOP. This is a legal ad as I am not a dealer. This is my personal chainsaw bought NEW and NEVER used. It is in NEW condition as the day I bought it NEW.

    Shins are good saws. That's not too bad of a deal. Are you thinking of buying?

    See some discussion on AS now and then. They are pretty good saws, as I recall.

    I had an excavator guy who owned a few, he said they were good professional saws. I am more concerned about where you can have them serviced.

    +1 with John Boy. I recognize the name with landscaping tools but can't say I ever saw a CS by them. I like my husky

    I wouldnt give two rats a$$ cents for a Shindiawa saw! I have a 488 and its the biggest piece of junk of the (6) I have. I have an old Mac 10-10 that I will use before this junk. You want a real saw, get a Stihl MS460.

    Funny, I was thinking the same thing.

    It's a pro grade saw that gets a bad name for looking like it belongs in a little car during the thanksgiving parade

    That ad has been in many places. My guess is that is a knockoff. Don't know why someone would imitate a Shindaiwa or whatever it is, but he claims to be a private seller and has been pushing this saw for months.

    It's no knockoff (judging by the picture)..... it may be a scam if its been posted all over craigslist however.
