    Both look like pretty good saws for the price!

    Anything in particular to look for when buying a used saw other than that it runs?

    looks good, I paid $75 for an 026 in similar shape with bad piston and cylender. Will cost me around anothe $75 to bring it back to life.

    A 260 for $175!! I wouldn't even look at the 025 for $150. It's older due to model # (0 first is older than 0 last). And the 260 is a white handle saw ;) (Pro series)

    If those are your only 2 choices, I would grab the 260. For that price, it's a steal (almost $600 new) the new 250 (025) is only $300. So $150 for a $300 saw. Or $175 for a $600 saw??

    Offer $150 for the 260 and see what happens :)

    Well I missed them but hopefully something else will show up soon even though I don't really need another saw I would like to get one more that's a little bigger. At least now thanks to yall I have a better idea of whats what with these used saws.
