I was at the big orange box today picking up some wrenches when I saw they were selling a new (last years model) homelite 33cc ranger- 16 inck bar w/ case, manual and chain. So, I have heard a lot of smack talked about homelite, and I know some of you would not use their saws to slice bread, but it was $70!! I could not resist. I bought it. At that price it seemed like a bargain. Dumb move? Let me know. PS- the guy working the depot said he has had his homelite for 12 years cutting up to 14" in diameter and it is still running great. He also said go home, cut some wood, and if I don't like it bring it back... there is something nice about the big box stores.
