Hi all, I’m looking for some advice. I’ve been considering buying a new Ms500i from a local dealer but I’m not sure if they’re doing their best to offer me a good price. I’ve been offered a new 500i with a 20” bar & chain with 1 spare chain for $1950. I’ve seen the 25” setup advertised for $2250. I’d appreciate your thoughts
Are the bars being offered the ES Light bars ?
they are **** loads $ than the standard bars

Brought down a small tree up at neighbors today, just rigged all the bits down as it was over a shed and tank, used snap cuts on the stems after the brushy stuff was rigged down.
used the 150, loved it great little light easy to handle saw for the small stuff, but moved up to the 201t later, then sorted the stick with the 261.

just great the bugs got out again and taken a hold so Victoria into lockdown 4... its pretty easy this time adapting and as it winter the mask an't so bad. I got heaps or chores and works not a issue for me plus traffic is much easier.
I got reloading to do & the paddock archery is back on set up a 70 metre range and plonked them in

Been thinking of you all over in vic with both lockdown, and the storm that went thru.
We only had mild winds compared to what you got hit with, but had a few 5 deg days tho.
Should be out cutting firewood for a few years time, but can only do so much in one day.
Hope your able to clear the backlog of work, and it all goes safely and to plan.

And the flooding too, been pretty brutal to you lot over there.
How has the dam re model fared with the rain, I would assume its full and functional now.

Keep at it mate, hope you dont get hit with another round in a weeks time.
