• 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.

I'll ad a quick review here for the uninformed, its been over a year now but I believe this is the seller I bought a 361 from.

Refurbished, New, used, or whatever you'd like to call it, the 361 I bought was new from what I could tell. It did have gas in it at one point prior to me receiving it. I owned it for a year before sending it to be ported and the builder said it was completely OEM but he could tell had been apart before. So what ? I got an amazing brand new looking 361 that is completely factory and runs like it.

The saw, 3 ES bars and 9 chains was $680 shipped to the door, resold all the bars and chains for around 270 and picked up a 20" ES Light for it. After selling an older 361 I have a brand new 361 for a whopping cost of the ES Light! Couldnt be happier. I dont care what we call it its an amazing deal for those interested.

Like the OP said, if you're thinking of bidding time your purchase accordingly. I watched the ad for quite some time. Early cutting season early fall or late winter into late spring are the best times to buy as the demand for a saw is lower than other times.

The ads say they were ran for 5 minutes for break in purposes, yes mine had a lil fuel in them as well.

I have had my 260 for over a yr now, runs strong, even better with a muffler mod.
My 361 hasn't even had fuel yet, but I want to get it ported.

A tweetie bird told me that the engines are bought in bulk in Ohio, no serial numbers(no EPA?) and put together with all OEM parts, then labeled as refurb.

That was my experience also as far as the imprinted data, I was uncomfortable with that part but that wasn't realized until I had it in my hands. The seller has such good quality feed back I simply let it go.

Interesting, thanks for the info I figured someone had connections somewhere to be assembling these and selling them that inexpensively. I also wasn't asking any questions lol
