Without even trying I ended up with a new 271 Stihl today. Well , it's used. It has had 1 YUP ONE tank of saw gas run thru it. I know because this summer I started this saw for the owner so they could do some cutting with it. Once it ran out of fuel . They refueled it and tried to start it and couldn't. After the guy bought the saw. While it was still nib . He had major health problems and complications. Has not regained much of his former strength. I will make sure they have plenty of firewood for the winter. In the long run , it's not a great financial deal. But, they are new to the area and this early winter really put the crimp on a lot of people's plans. Mine included.
