    Hey all, Great site. Too much info for even a few days reading.
    Anyways my question is a friend has 2 saws that he wants to get rid of. One is a 1999 jonsered 2063, the other is a 2003 Husky 346 xp. I already have an ms310 and ms 192c for my firewood. What is reasonable for these saws, and do I really need them, Of course I kow you can't have too mnay saws.

    Thanks

    Tough to give accurate prices considering we don't know the condition. 1/3 - 1/4 of retail would be about right if they are in good condition.
    The 346XP has quite a following...great saw.

    The 346 xp new up here is $800, so that would be between $200-$275. I'm not sure what the Jonsered is worth.

    If they both run great, are well used but properly maintained, $325 to $400.

    The 2063 is basically the same saw as the Husky 362xp (early version) - weights about the same as the 310, and a much better saw.
