• 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.

What many are not taking into consideration is EBAY is one of the safest and most reliable place of business going. How many have noticed on the chainsaw forums : please send your money FAMILY & Friends? Yes it saves the fees AND ALSO HAS NO PROTECTION. I sold 5 saws in the last 6 weeks all with the buyers being fully protected. I stand behind everything I sale and want my customers to be happy.
The self appointed police on this site will doing everything behind their keyboards to make people look good or bad without ever buying something from them. Why? First I can tell this I am a very good teacher and am much better in person. But the minute you ask to meet the keyboard warriors in person they start whining you are threatening them??? But they can threaten your character, your morals, your reasoning ... you name it the self appointed police will attack it. My advice to them is stay right behind your keyboard because in the real world face to face you have to stand up and backup your big mouth. But of course we all know that the big bad GIRLY MEN are nothing but new wave cyber bullies.... the Retired Marine show that instantly asking to meet you hahaha.

Bill,

You know my name. You know where I live. You're welcome to bring your mint saws and cut some wood with this girly man any time you'd like. The road runs in two directions. Your insults are not appreciated any more than your message edits and lies.

@BVdog first, I don’t think anyone was questioning the validity of eBay in this thread or that the item received wouldn’t match the description. Again most were pointing out that they aren’t oem. The seller himself stated refurbished so until someone reaches out to them directly about it, I’d say we can leave that there

Second, again I don’t think anyone said they were being threatened. From what I read someone ASKED if they were being threatened which is valid. Came off as hostility and not trying to actually have a civil discourse over it in person.

Last point, I don’t think anyone was trying to be a “keyboard warrior” from what I read those questioning the validity of the post just stated the facts about the saws and not their personal opinion. I think everyone was hoping for a factual refutation to prove the other sides stance, but unfortunately only opinions were stated. After all, an argument based on opinion is a fallacy and at its core not an argument at all.

I agree with @cuinrearview.

They may be mechanically sound and run decent but to say they are a great deal because they are all oem may be a stretch. I think that’s all anyone is trying to say.
The sellers I bought from have combined over 4000 reviews, 100% positive feedback. Then toolshop1968 has over 1800, with 100% positive feedback.

You probably shouldn't trust them and probably shouldn't buy one, just for your peace of mind, ya know? You probably shouldn't even comment on the post anymore since it is of no value to you or @cuinrearview or @chipper1.

But see there is the issue, those reviews are opinions. There were a few simple questions asked early on that weren’t answered with a fact or actual evidence. Just a slew of opinions.

Lastly, you shouldn’t assume. I am in the market for a saw so I’d say this is of interest to me and really anyone merely for clarification on the saws.

The seller, I'm sure, is top notch. I believed everything he listed in his ad. I never questioned that.

My point is 6000+ opinions, of ppl who actually bought a saw from these sellers, outweigh all the haters on this post.

No ones opinion outweighs anyone else.

See that’s the problem. Yes the fact that all those reviews exist is in and of itself a fact but their content is not. I need to know that you know the difference there :angry:
