    STIHL 025 ... 60$ (80$Canadian). Was flipping thru some adds and came up on a 025. Will need a new bar and chain. Compression is 150... runs great. Piston has no scoring.

    I have too many saws! But this one was too good to pass up. I know it’s only a 025 but too good not to pickup. IMG_5208.jpg IMG_5201.jpg IMG_5199.jpg IMG_5209.jpg IMG_5210.jpg

    If we had an almost suck thread I would post there. I saw an 260 pro on Marketplace for $30 and messaged immediately that I'd take it and never heard back. I concluded he didn't have messenger and I should have posted on the ad instead.

    So not sure if this qualifies but...

    Stopped by my local dealer this afternoon, not only did I get this beauty at dealer cost, but I also picked up a referral for 2 different residential trees that are needing to come down

    Does this qualify as suckage? New B/C for all cost about another £90. Already sold 1 200tc and 1 170 and made my money back. The rest will be a happpy bonus :)

    Feel like I got my birthday present early today. My cousin called and said he was at an auction with a GIANT David Bradley. It's a 5G21, almost 8 cubes, 130CC's. Power products AH81 engine. I told him to go $50 on it. He called back and said that with tax, buyers premium, the total was $30.07. I'll have to wait till tomorrow for the pic. I was too pumped up to wait till I got it home. He said it is complete and it does turn over with what feels like good compression. I've never had the chance to play with a big gear drive. I hope I have it running if we have a PA GTG this year.

    [​IMG][​IMG]I got a Jonsered 2250S for $140. The saw is only a year old with new chain. Missed out on the same brand of saw a couple days ago for 100.

    Picked up the David Bradley, bummer, we read the model number wrong, it's the little 77cc model.

    Picked up a 359 from the original owner, who stated it wouldn’t run. Bar/chain were original, no more than 10 tanks of fuel ran though it since he bought it. Used where he hunted to trim limbs in shooting lanes, but has sat up last couple years. Compression is great, put fresh fuel in it in his driveway and it fired up and ran but wouldn’t idle. I handed him the $35 he was asking and tossed it in the truck. One Zama carb later, she’s purring...... F1C04FC0-66C7-41FE-813E-F277BF8BF352.jpeg

    A lot of very nice saws at bargain prices. Parts too. I never find anything offered for less than $300-600. d

    SXL 925 and Super EZ for 60$. The EZ will clean up nice. The SXL is a bit more of a project. Havent looked at pistons yet.

    OK so I think this probably counts for this category. I picked up this 066 flat top about a year ago for $50. The saw was complete other than a broken chain brake handle. The saw was seized up and the owner thought his hired man had probably straight gassed it. It sat in the back corner of my shop until a couple months ago. I finally decided to tear it down and see if it was going to be a parts saw or a fixer. Turned out the piston had actually broken but everything had an oil film on it and the cylinder looked fantastic. Much to my surprise the cylinder didn’t even have any transfer on it or a single score mark. I rebuilt it with OEM gaskets, seals, and bearings. It has a new meteor piston with caber rings. I took it out today for the first time and ran three tanks through it and man is this saw a beast! I wish I could keep it but I already have a 660 clone saw with the big bore kit and I don’t really need two big saws.

    You're keeping the wrong saw!

    I use my 660 clone maybe enough to burn five tanks a year through it. The clone represents about a $250 investment and is barely worth that to sell. But can sit on my shelf and go along for the ride whenever it’s needed. This 066 flat top deserves to be used.

    Scored a 460 for free that the guy thought was toast. (He didnt know what he had in this saw the 460 tag was missing)It ended up needing a new spark plug,fuel filter and decomp valve cleaned . (I need a chain brake flag and 3/4 wrap for this 460 If you have one let me know)
    2nd deal same guy i got a non running 461 for $150 turned out to be a stuck open decompression valve. It was literally a 2 minute fix.
    If you guys dont hate me yet you are going to after i tell you i got 2 running 200ts for $150 one needs carb rebuilt and the othher was dropped from a tree and will need top handle A/V mounts.
    Easily my best saw haul value wise.
