    I'm at a local thrift store and they have husqvarna 41 for $135. I'm trying to talk them down, what should I offer? Thanks

    Does it run? What kind of condition is it in? If it's not running I wouldn't give much for it. I would definitely ask if I could check spark pull the muffler off and check the condition of the piston & cylinder. $100 max if it's running, maybe $40 or $50 if it's not and checks out good.
    I like those saws and have a couple myself, but they are what they are... cheap homeowner grade saws

    so i just realized when i google image search "husqvarna 41" two different saws come up... one has a black top and just says 41 on the pull start. the other one (looks newer) is all orange and says 41 Air injection on it. the one at the thrift store is the air injection model... does this change the value? sorry, just realized this and im not sure if i was getting the correct model appraised.. thanks guys

    I have always done it the other way around. Jump on it, then find is is worth half what I paid... I'm learning though.

    yea they run ok they just have no resale value they do a real good job in small wood. I could buy them for 50.00 pretty often if i wanted them they just dont bring any money
