What the good or bad, and what's a good price?

There is no bad...... depending on condion $100-$500 is a good price
The 044's are great saws. They are becoming older now and the plastic handles are (commonly) breaking. You can buy an aluminum plate for the bottom of the saw (ebay $35.00) and using a short piece of pipe attached to the handle, support the broken handle to the bottom of the saw. Subtract cost for broken handle repair from offer price..I wouldn't go over $350 for an 044 in any condition however.
Good = the 044 is a great saw
Bad = if it's in decent shape there is no bad
He wants $320 with a 20" bar or $380 with a new 24" bar and chain. I think im going to offer $350 with both bars. But I dont know if thats high or not.
I honestly have no idea what it's worth of if it's a good deal or not, but that saw needs at least a 24" bar.
Go for it. If he gives you both bars with that saw at that price, that's a great deal. Like Big Red said, 24" is the better bar for that saw. It'll handle a 28" great, too. A 28 is my bar of choice for all-around cutting. Go big or GO HOME...
Its a no go for now. He won't come off full price.
Maybe he'll reconsider after he sits on it for a week or two.
It has never been said what condition the saw is in...... $320 with a 20" bar could be a steal.
If it is in good shape 320.00 SOLD!
I don't know if the link will work its from my phone.
We are at $370 both bars and 2 new chains for the 24" bar.
Buy it, and thank me for telling you to later....
LOL, maybe the seller is on here watchin'. . . So much for your
If he was he would have ask for more!
Well I'm going to look at it tonight. If it starts and cut good its mine. $370 it is. I hope its the only saw I will need from now on.
Don't forget to check that the oiler operates properly. Sometimes that's why a saw is sold with a new bar!
Oiler is an easy fix.....get the thing or give me the guys number and I'll buy it........lol.....
This sucks. Im going to get the 044 in the morning now but I just found a MS310 and they are asking $200 for it. I dont know to cancel on the 044 for the cheaper MS310. The MS310 is really all I need for firewood but that 044 sure would be fun if I came across some big logs. What to do???
I wish I had the money for both.
If you get an 044, then the only other saw you'd need is a small, lightweight 35-50 cc for limbing. The best would be an ms200T, but that isn't the only choice. There are tons of (cheaper) small lightweight saws out there which can cut small branches. You'll love the 044.... while the 310 isn't anything special. The 310 is too heavy to be great for limbing and too weak to really get down in big hardwood. Of course the 310 would work...just not as well and not a thrill to use...
Take a few deep breathes, relax, and keep your eye on the ball. This is no time to mince and flounce. Go get that 044.
