I read an ad in the local paper for a stihl farm boss ms290 asking $300. I think its kinda high price myself for used. I will get a chance to look at it tomorrow and if I feel it looks & runs ok I'll offer $250. The guy said it is in great shape and he has 2 new extra chains also. Anyone care to share their thoughts feel free. Thanks in advance. PS My Sears chain saw is about done after 6 years at 3 to 4 cords cut per year.
