I have 2 husky 254xp saws and a third in box in parts. I have semi rebuilt the 2. Run perfect sometimes and scream when they are running just right. Other times I have to pull the cord a dozen times. What would be a fair asking price.for the whole works. The bars.and chains are perfect. 20 in 3/8. Id like to switch over to all 300 series saws. 2 346 Saws and 2 357 Saws now. Would like to see these go to a loving home.

Very hard to give an estimated value without any pictures, let alone there being issues with them. The value would probably be just a bit above parts saw value, unless you want to take the time to part them out and make more from them.
Basically they are worth what someone is willing to pay, but they are yours and you should set the price and see what happens from there.

I will sell the 2 saws and a parts saw and spare.parts in a box. As well as a extra walbro carb. If u make me a offer that gets the gears turning well talk. If its a laugher I will take them down. I need not sell them but wouldnt mind thinning the herd and having all 300 series.

Both saws run and oil. 1 is better than the other. I put on new cylinders and pistons last year plus the carb rebuild kit. Cosmetically they are okay. The 1 that has heated handlebars I do not believe the heat works. The spare parts.saw which could be brought back to life with a bunch of spare parts and screws also has heated handles 20211119_120809.jpg

Your best bet it to just put a price on them. I'm very interested, as the 254 is my favorite chainsaw. I see two decent saws, but I'm not sure what is a fair offer. $100 each? You have a figure in your head, just toss it out there.

As for the new piston/cylinders installed, were they OEM parts or aftermarket? Those details make a difference in what someone is willing to pay.

I'm interested in the lot, just need to figure out what you want for it all.

The bars on these were about 70 bucks at the husq dealer so yeah I believe 100 is out. 4 guys interested. The best offer may take them. Rare saws that actually run and can be used. I may do eBay but they take about 15% off the top. But atleast I could see who is willing to pay what.

I'd be interested in just the power heads only. I have plenty of bars/chains, and shipping gets more difficult with the bars.

I'll offer $300 + shipping for the saws and parts, you can keep/sell the bars and chains separately.

I will say 500 takes them plus the shipping. Rare and running. And at times they scream when the stars align. Perfect firewood saws that have seen a lot of firewood.

Are you sure about the 500, sounds like you're unsure?
I've owned quite a few of those "rare" saws, as have others in this thread.
So the 4 guys all backed out?

Nope I said make a offer. 1 guy made a offer of 300 plus the shipping. 2 others said name a price. That is not exactly making a offer is it. I have them for sale on the book as well. Already sick of emails nonstop. I may have them rebuilt from scratch and can go under the bench in the storage apartment. That would at least end the dickering. Guy on Craigslist offered $300 plus a 440 saw. Just what I need.
Gotta love the bargaining.
And yeah they are not that rare around here. Except they run. I know a guy who has about 6 of them. All have some ailment but boy does he have a pile of parts and saws. Heated, non heated, functional, not functional. a treasure trove. Bought in Canada after US epa killed them off here

So doing this :rolleyes: in the beginning may have saved you from two weeks of this.

Never understood why you guys insist on doing this.
It's yours, name a price and be done.

well .....i am in for a few of the Maine lobsters ..have any?.... :) here in Utah fresh seafood is not so fresh and mostly sucks......
I am open to sending lobsters. I just want a fair deal for these saws as well. I have both running well. If u are interested lets talk and exchange numbers. Lobsters aside, if I sell these 2 saws, I will have all 300 series. But I am not going to sell.for lowest offer. If u want them, 2 running and 1 in a box that is nothing but parts and screws, lets talk.
