    Hi folks,

    So I was casually surfing Craigslist last night looking for a bookcase for the living room and an ad that I was looking at said, at the bottom of the listing, "also a couple old non running chainsaws". Of course I saw this as divine intervention telling me to spend money on chainsaws instead of actual household needs :rock: so I inquired and was sent pics. Looks like 2 Dolmar 133's, 1 Echo 602VL, 1 Echo CS590 Timber Wolf, and 1 Echo CS370. Got him down to $150 for the whole bunch but wanted some opinions first.

    My only real need (ok, ok, it's a want) is for a bigger saw. And the Dolmar 133s fit the bill at 85cc. Anyone have any thoughts/opinions on the 133? The other saws will just be icing on the cake as I'm really just looking for a bigger saw to ad to the collection. Though I have heard that some people like the Timber Wolf.

    Anyhow, any input is much appreciated! Resized_20191103_123328.jpg Resized_20191103_123322.jpeg Resized_20191103_123337.jpg Resized_20191103_123331.jpg Resized_20191103_123319.jpeg

    How so? I've never owned a Dolmar but was always led to believe that they are a pro grade saw? Hard to find parts?

    Yes, spark is the bigger issue with the 133, if they have spark they are worth at least $150. each.

    $150 for all of them? Sounds like you robbed him! LOL Have you seen what a Timberwolf goes for on the bay? They're getting (well, asking) some pretty steep prices. Speaking of that... how much you want for it? :) That's one I've been wanting to get my hands on, but flea-bay prices are too outrageous...
