    Hey guys - well, I've been talking about moving up to the MS362 and going new on the saw. Well.......found a MS362 on CL which is near perfect - bought in Dec 2012 with a couple of tanks of gas through the saw - talked to the owner - very knowledgeable saw guy - he wanted to move up to a MS461. Everything seems perfect on the saw, so I'm going to take a chance. $550 + 3 chains and a gallon of Stihl pre-mix. Seems like a pretty good deal. I just bought a nearly new Echo CS-550P last night for $200, so I think I can make at least $100 on that saw, another $100 on the MS391 I just bought, and sell my 039 for at least $250. If all this works, I'm moving up to the 362 for about $100 - sounds good to me! Supposed to meet the seller tonight - if it works out, I'll have some photos real soon!!!!

    Cheers!

    Mike - yes, pretty funny - looks like a great saw, so figured I'd jump - if it's as good as it looks, I'll save about $150 off retail + two new new Stihl RS chains and one new Oregon full chisel chain - not bad. I'm trying not to count my chickens yet - a few hours to go until it touches down - anything can happen!! Cheers!
  4. I hope it works out for you. I never mention any potential deals to anyone until after they are in my truck. Too easy for someone else to figure out where you are heading and undercut your deal.

    I picked up a used ms362 a couple of weeks ago for $300 and absolutely love it. It has an 18 inch bar and I put a new chain on it. My son and I cut up about 2 cords of elm and it cut through everything like a light saber. I have never had a nicer saw in my hands. No more garage sale Poulans for me! Lol

    The eagle has landed!!! Worked out perfect - this saw is absolutely mint - looks like a dealer fired it up and test cut for a buyer. Runs incredibly smooth - I'm in love with this saw - need to go cut with it soon - hoping I can find some time on Thursday. Too late for pics - I'll get them tomorrow. I'm a very happy camper tonight!! Time to get the other saws sold to offset the cost of this one (or, tell me wife I sold them and hide them somewhere......). Cheers!!!
