• 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.

Why bother trying to hide anything anyways? Then you end up with an irritated customer. Espessially on this site. Where most people have an idea what they are looking at. Even if you "fix" it, that's what they remember.

I usually have an idea what I'm looking at, but I once got so excited about an 044 I was buying in person that I overlooked a badly broken crankcase even though it was staring right at me. Thankfully I paid little enough that I didn't feel too terribly burned when I realized what I'd done.

Is there a "black list" somewhere? Rednecksawman was the 044 seller - you could see the damage to the covers that the buyer described if you looked closely at the first pic - but he was clearly trying to hide it. The 200T seller was mattfr12 or something.
he's been added to my "black list''. He needs to refund the full price to the buyer and buy back his piece of sh!t saw for not disclosing that it had a busted tank mount. He didn't show pics of the bottom for a reason.

Interested to see what comes up here.dude said that the money was going to fund the church youth group.the money i sent for a saw did go to a youth group.... Or at least thats where paypal said it was going.
Now on to my problem......Ever have a New looking McCulloch PM 700 that started,Ran,but couldn't get the carb tuned to save your life only to find out the cylinder was scored........ Can you say Ouch! I've brushed it off as seller error and the money i spent on it did (hopefully) go to a good cause.luckily and thanks to one of the members here i have gotten all of the parts except for a piston and gaskets cheap enough to justify what i paid for the saw.

shouldn't get deleted or locked- it's "our money" that is at risk here. We have a right to know about and discuss bad deals/ sellers. I spent $11,000 on saws last year, most of them used. I got burned by 2 sellers. One here and one on another site. Both on purchases that were over $1000. They made it right in the end, but only after they were exposed.

last night i went back and looked at the original pics sent after seeing the buyers pics and there is nothing taken from that side of the saw close enough to see the crushed handle and plastic and nothing of the bottom of the saw. and youre right about mattfr12, and as i recall he offered the buyer of the 200t another parts saw or two to try to make it right. Lesson:Dont sell something for dirtbag friend.

seems to me like with all these shady deals these days, the mods should start a black list/wall of shame type thing. Make an example out of people who misrepresent saws and deceive people. A sticky thread right up there with new river firewood :cool:
