• 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.

  • To all SELLERS: you are expected to describe each item accurately. Photo's are strongly suggested, and should be of sufficient quality to allow a potential buyer to evaluate your item. All items for sale or trade must include a price or clear description of what you wish to trade. Shipping requirements should be included with your description, as well as any unusual expectations. This is not an auction site, and you are expected to deal fairly with all offers. Sales must be completed honorably once finalized with your buyer.

Up for sale is a Mike Shetley (Rattler) built and ported 288xp. This has only made a couple cuts since it was built. All OEM parts. The only thing not mint would be the handle. I can provide more pics if desired. $1050 shipped.

For the benefit of ignorant me, and for clarification for all would-be buyers:

Is that repainted or is that original paint on the crankcase?
Is the muffler new?
Is this modified from a new old stock saw, purchased in another country, or is the 288xp still available? I didn't think the 288 was still offered in the U.S.
