  • 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.

I have an 042 here also ,odd looking saw ,looks like a horseshoe crab ,cant give that thing away .
an 042 is like an 032 or an 050. nobody wants to run those! big old dinosaurs LOL. i think about it now and the oldest stihl i could ever be happy running is the 038 LOL if i was a stihl guy i'd likely keep it for firewood but i own plenty of huskies that do that job so the stihl takes up room in the shop. i did run this thing a full day a couple days ago though and it does run very well for an older saw. 28" with a square ground chain and she was sling'n chips quite a ways. it also has the wide discharge clutch cover.

The 038 has a bad rap due to the air filter/choke setup. Otherwise its built like a tank and has the power to do whatever you ask of it for a 70cc saw. Mine wears a 32" and has the bowls to keep it. Its just a little heavier than my 044.

as tempting as that is i'm gonna have to pass man. just gave my grandfather a 272 i built. trying to get down to a reasonable number of saws. after this 038 is gone i will only have 8 left, 6 of which are my work saws and the other 2 my personal home use saws. recounted and forgot the 385's. may sell them in favour of a new 576 as i've really been liking the one i have.

tryin to thin my herd a lil, too. 40+ here.
my days of 40+ are over LOL. it can be damn difficult to get rid of them all when a guy finally decides he doesn't need that many saws. my life has been in phases. i'll collect lots then decide to sell them off, then do it all over again. don't think i ever had more then 50 runners at one time though. wish i knew of AS long ago. could have made a fortune on 2100's back in the day. if i didn't need saws for work i would likely sell them all except the AT saws at this point.

i've got a .404 .063 26" oregon with 2 loops. one is a stihl chisel skip tooth and the other is an oregon semi chisel. stihl chain is new and the oregon one has been filed a few times. separate purchase and a separate package as shipping bars with saws in way unreasonable. i will sell it if you want it but it will go separately. sorry for the delay, i didn't receive a notification for your post.

Bump!!! still sitting here needing a label. packaged really well for the ride. box gets a layer of tape once label is written. i feel $325 shipped is a very fair price for this saw. trades welcome!
