    I decided to check them out after reading that the product was getting good reviews here . I was being a little too cautious something that being online for many years will do to you . I am very confident that the saws will be new but 3-6 yrs old stock.

    They had like 256 bad reviews in the last yr, but they had like 22k good ones. I took it as much like playing the lotto and having the odds turned around, I got a bunch of tickets myself ;). 2013-2016.

    It sure does!
    And if you happen to have a full wrap handle, a Dremel, a sticker for the recoil, and a 24" total bar and a new exl chain they look nice too :sweet:.

    I didn't do it, plenty of others who do a great job on that(transfer covers) and much more. I've got a great running ported 372xt.
    I have others with standard handles, some guys like the wraps so I usually keep a few around in case someone asks, right now I've got the ported xt, the 2166/72, and a ported 7910 with full wraps.

    Those are aftermarket spikes made by pro safety. The ones in the picture are the 5 point, they are great for flush cutting stumps with large root flares.

    Here's a link to the 4 points these seem to be liked by a lot of guys, but I've never tried them.

    The husky large felling spikes are a bit smaller yet.

    Mine arrived with a cracked and broken handle. Missing a chunk which is not in the box. Contacted the seller and waiting for a response. 20190308_145620.jpg

    Did you call them or go thru Ebay.
    I'd call them. There is a new handle on Ebay right now I think it was 99.
    They aren't a repair shop so they probably won't want to take it back, I'd try to negotiate something that will work for you and for them, shipping from your place isn't exactly cheap and they will still be getting a broken saw back.

    @BVdog were you able to negotiate a larger purchase. When I talked to them they made it sound as though their inventory was low, on the 2166's anyway. I know someone who got a couple of the 2250 at $199, good little saw for that, but they did have the tooless chain adjustment.

    I sent a message through ebay, but will give them a call when I get a chance. Is it a new handle or used?
