I found what the current owner refers to as a "350 model" Husqvarna chainsaw which he says has a 52cc powerplant. It's been used twice and appears to be almost brand new. Can someone tell me if this saw is worthy of the $200 price tag? Unfortunately, no other info has been provided about the saw.

Worth is up to you. I pass on the 350's around here in like new shape from $100 to $150. Good little saws for the money. $200 would be the high limit IMO if like new.

I just bought a 575xp for just a little more than that. It is not like new but I bought from a repair shop for the P/C and labor cost.....Seems a little high to me....

To the OP:

If the 350 has the bar and maybe a few goodies, the 200.00 isn't bad. The good news is, when a used saw this size hits the 200 dollar mark people start thinking about a new saw. With that in buyer's minds, the seller won't move it too quickly if he is firm on the price.

Good saw for the money IMHO. :msp_thumbup:
