• 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.

Wonder if and when they will be out of stock forever. Can't imagine
Echo selling a lot of them. The 1201 is one hell of a saw.

i hope they notify the public before discontinuing
distributor was landing 3 batches a year
now its 2 for this year on, im assuming the need for such big saw is in decline and will be out in few years ?

You quoted me $1150 USD, shipping included to the US last fall, when the exchange rate with the Real was about 3:1 USD/BRL. Today it’s close to 4:1, and the price has only barely budged.

I would expect not expect a Swedish/Global company to work in Brazilian Currency other than paying the local workforce/vendors.
Ford does not work in Pesos when selling Mexican built cars... etc....
plus... these saws may have been built years ago. Nothing says the cost is/was todays cost.
$1100 all in is not bad for a new 6hp saw of this quality level.

My bad, I thought they were being sold out of Brazil, not import/exported from Malasia. I forgot where you were, Robin, my mistake.

no problem buddy, most people get confused with commodity trading where price fluctuates with currency. it doesnt apply for manufacturing most times, those are agreement of supply/demand at said price. price fluctuations are absorbed by both parties.

i'll be more than glad to give you guys better price if i do get them
