• Notice to all BUYERS. You are buying at your own risk. If you do not know the seller then please be cautious and look for suspicious activity. If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.
  • Please be aware that we have recently gotten a wave of users that, when researched, are found to be from Nigeria. They are trying to sell products and asking to be paid through Zelle or Venmo leaving users with no recourse if they don't ship the product. If you suspect this activity please contact admin and we will research their information to verify their location.

Yep, Dave is a Very Reputable seller.

I bought my 3120XP from him, and have been Very Happy with it

Note, Ignore the owners manual about using Choke AND Throttle Lock for Cold starts.

Choke ON, Throttle Lock OFF

about 3 pulls, she will snort,

Choke OFF

2-3 pulls she will wake the county

Try the above first, your saw may like something different, I just about had a coronary trying to start that Beast using the Choke and Throttle lock, which is what my "Old Reliable" 266XP LIKES, but not the 3120XP. Even with the decomp valve pulling on that thing very many times will flat wear you out

For any new 3120 xp owners, please read the above. I forgot in the interim because I didn't get to milling as fast as I had hoped. Had to clear out deadwood for my grandpa, life, etc. etc. Pulled out the manual this past Saturday and put the choke and throttle lock on, I was redfaced. Turned throttle lock off and she gave the snort. Turned the choke off and she was growling.

I'm not a big man, I did not appreciate how big these saws are. We got on of our other chainsaws stuck in the woods so I pulled out the 3120 to do some "limbing", won't do that again. She's a milling saw 95% of the time.

Yep, she’s a LOT of saw;) used it for awhile for larger firewood when the 266XP was my next biggest saw, lot of Fun bucking 34” Douglas Fir into firewood rounds, but it was on the ground, so I would cut 7/8 through with the 3120, then roll the log and finish with an up cut. Didn’t take many up cuts to put the 3120 down and pick up the 266 to finish the cuts

Now, I also have a 390XP and a 395XP, so the 3120 is almost exclusively used for milling now, but it is an Impressive saw, and well suited to milling, I have no regrets buying it, or buying it from Dave, I would Highly Recommend both the Saw and the Seller, they have both treated me well

Once you figure out just what your saw likes, it isn’t a bad starting saw, ya just gotta figure out how make her Smile and Giggle

Doug :cheers:
