    Whats a husky 50 worth?

    Its the 89' ~ 300th anniversarry edition.

    Greyish black top cover.

    Decent condition, starts, runs cuts.

    Its got a 14 or 16 " .325 b/c

    My friends got a few cord of wood to cut & split. Hes had an eye on the saw & wants to buy it from me.

    I have no idea what the fair market value on the thing is though.

    Key Word


    The key word is FRIEND. I would give it to him. If you have a bunch of saws, and he is a friend, I would just give it to him, otherwise $100 for a friend.

    That's just me,

    Well I got it for free :laugh:

    Im not going to be losing money on it by any means, I dont particularly wanna get rid of the saw but it doesnt get used since I bought the 7900.

    I was thinkin 40-50 bucks, I just have a hunch hes going to turn around and sell it for more to a guy he works with. Neither of them know jack about saws, I know this kid cant properly run one or respect it. Im going to have to give him a lesson or two before I even sell it to him.

    $200? That saw probably didn't sell for that new. You've got to be joking.

    I could care less if he sells it after. I just dont want him to make more money than me on it.

    Ie: I give it to him for 20 he sells it for 50.

    40 50 bucks is probably reasonable.
    Ill go through it first too just to make sure its in good working order.

    Maybe ill even sharpen the chain :laugh:

    This kid knows that you got the saw for free? He's counting on getting it for a good price because y'all are friends? He's only buying it to flip it for a profit?

    I did a quick eBay ended auction search, about $100.00 to $165.00, depending on the condition; of course saw prices in your area may might vary greatly from eBay.
