Hi, all: I live pretty far away from my primary chainsaw source (aka "boyfriend") and I have good wood-scrounging opportunities around me. I'm still not sure if I should invest my money into getting my own chainsaw, or get an electric splitter instead. But I just saw this ad in Craig's list, and it's tempting: Stihl chain saw, O26 pro, professional series chain saw. Exc. cond. 16 bar. $150. That's all the ad says. I know Stihl is good, and that's what the BF has. He has a dealer nearby. Importantly to me, it's a pretty light saw. (~10lbs) I was recently looking into arborist saws, trying to find a really light chainsaw. From opinions that I've read here and on arboristsite.com, this is a good saw, especially if I'm not paying full price. My questions are: --Is there a way to determine just how old this one is, if the seller doesn't know? --When did they start calling them 260, and are the parts the same? --What should we look for in an inspection, to be pretty sure everything is ok? --What are we likely to miss, how much will replacing things cost? (My BF can do that, but let's see if he has the time!) --Overall, what condition would you expect a $150 stihl 026 to be in? Thanks in advance for any advice!
