    Paul is happy , he said that he hoped I'd get it all on the ground before anyone came around , I think the client wanted to meet with Josh to mark the trees to "Save" lol

    I sort of heard they had another house to build at the end of Dewberry and they wanted to get right at it.

    The last 044 I did I found out was just purchased from a local flipper. Apparently the new owner bought it and paid dearly for it. Tried to cut wood and knew it wasn't right. Called me and when I brought the used and damaged bits with me the was a little tweaked up. He thanked me for always taking care of his stuff and paid in cash. I hope he doesn't get hosed again.

    I am most amazed at what people will pay for 044`s and MS440`s, they must have heard about how great those saws are....LOL
    I only have 7 in my herd now, must build more.

    Honestly I am surprised what people pay for lots of old saws...mainly Stihls ...but lots of older saws. Bring silly money in my opinion.

    Old saws have a reputation that many cling to that they are better than new offerings but the new saws get older and build a rep then they become the old saws everyone wants and the price stays high on them. Sort of like the Stihl 200T , prices stay artificially high for them because the 201T initially was not as fast or powerful but much of that has been overcome by now.

    I agree to a point......new saws like ALL the AT versions will likely not become valued older saws......no matter how well they performed initially.....one of the big reasons some (modern) older saws gain a rep is the fact that they are easy to assemble and disassemble easily with minimal tooling and are reliable for 30-40 years or more on original components.

    I dunno bout that Robin, I'm over 50 gallons into that saw , well maybe you're right, Stihl initial in the testing stage for this new whizzbang powered saw .
    I guess another 5 years and 50+ gallons will get me past the initial test ... Lol

    If I can make it that far that is

    Some of that big spruce and larch are still good for heat, plenty of that old ballast wood is not worth a dam.
