  1. so they are comparing a 56 cc saw to a 59.8 cc saw. the 362 is a lot closer in size to the echo. I would like to see that comparison. then I might be sold.

    not a bad price if the measurements and description were true. That looks to be about 1.5 cord max of basswood and at least one piece of spruce

    terms are an issue , so many people think a face cord is a cord , they would likely have 3-4 face cord on that wagon.

    I have a cousin who gets $175 a face 18" pieces delivered north east of Green bay in tourist land.

    he got to were he started asking himself why he was heating with wood when he could sell it to the out of state "cabin" owners and heat with LP and turn a profit on the wood that would pay for his LP heat.

    Looks like ash to me and yes it looks to be 3 or 4 facecord of 16" rounds. At least the lengths are somewhat consistant. If you think you can buy 3 or 4 full cords of ash rounds for $200 you are dreaming.

    My 55 Rancher is less powerful than my 590, by a fairly large margin, but at the same time it's also much older.


    I have to admit, I didn't want to like Echo. But when I found the 590 for $329 I had to jump on it, and I'm impressed. Fits in nicely with the 55 Rancher, 357XP, and MS362

    $210 for 5 bobcat attachments seems too good to be true. Until you see they are 2 inches in size. Is this some incredibly rare in demand collector thing?

    "Looking for a private individual who actually knows how to do maintenance and repair on chainsaws and knows how to correctly sharpen a chain somewhere near Stilwell Oklahoma Evansville Arkansas or Lincoln Arkansas Area. Please do not refer me to any shops in this area because I've been to the only two who claim they know what they're doing and they do not. Please only reply if you're the person that's doing the work. Looking for a private individual who does their own work successfully. Show me you know what you're doing before I pay you. If you can demonstrate this properly I will happily make you my standard maintenance man for my equipment.
    Recently moved to the area and haven't changed my phone number yet."

    I give the guy credit for at least realizing that equipment maintenance is important and he needs to hire somebody if he doesn’t do it himself. Most people just run it into the ground until the smoke comes up and then buy a new one

    Hey, I just clicked on the link and it said it was gone, so I started looking at the other stuff. 44 minutes ago some one posted a yard full of Black Locust for free. Anybody in MD want it, have at it. I don't do hard work for free, but, that's just me.

    They say there's a fool born every minute. Not sure who would be the bigger fool, the one who posted this, or the one who thinks it's a deal and will pay it...

    He says over 150 rounds, so depending on what ‘up to 36 diameter’ means (Many or just one), might not be a bad deal.
