Good deal, buddy. Nice saw.
Good deal buZZsaw BRAD . Primo $$$$ for primo product. You have to love capitalism.
Wow. I tell ya, getting a Stihl 201 for $350 is a steal! Did you realize how good a deal that is? And your saw looks to be in great condition.
EDIT: I just now saw all the other posts, lol. So, you know it was a great deal!
I did realize it and even at his original asking price of $400 it was still a good deal. Couldnt believe he accepted my $350 offer and was nice enough to meet me halfway for purchase the next morning.
How often do you use your RH 200 Yawner ? What bar length on yours?
I have several smaller saws and really don't use it that much but when I do, I am reminded how good a saw it is. It has 14 inch bar. I needed it yesterday, was thinning some small maples and only had Husky 346, which is fine, but I was walking through the woods, the 200 would have been nice.
When i purchased my 170 new in April i had only used my little Husky334 top handle as a light weight saw. It took a while to get used to using a light weight rear handle saw. I cut tops, downed trees often in tangles and once i got used to it a bigger saw was too clumsy for the task. I also have my 194 top handle which works great too, but for safety i want two hands on the saw. Any pics of your 200 Yawner
This one, I dunno about others.
NICE SAW! There was a rear handle 200 on FBM here a couple weeks ago. The guy wanted $900 for it and i think he was firm on the price too. It had a 14" Sugihara lightweight bar on it not that it adds much value. I had a nice PM chat with him. He was a tree service and knew it was worth money, but not even close to that IMO. A new 201C rear handle new is less than that. Ive seen them at my OPE dealer.
I have less than a tank full through mine and love it. My 170 is being sold this week to a fellow FHC member.
Certainly is a great saw but his ask is too high but who knows, might help him get a high final closing price. Was his new or used?
Used. He seemed like he wanted to keep it. At $500 i mightve considered it...mightve.
All my pro model saws ive gotten great deals on. My MS194T i paid retail even though the OPE dealer did take $20 off.
To sell a cord for $600...a cord in the bed (of the right truck) and a cord in the trailer, coming home with $1200....I could be tempted d3pending how far away that was...
Im kinda hoping for a good long cold snap...keep the poisonous snakes, spiders, an invasive fish southa here. Keeping molds, blights and fungusses at bay would be ok with me too.
A little reading revealed that a good cold spell is healthy for ecosystems around here.
Same here. I like the frozen ground.
Hard to clean the drive without the ground frozen the other day..
Not worth it for me to deal with yuppie city folks, traffic, etc.
That's the reason I don't drive 2-3 hrs to ATL. There are a few folks that haul big trailers of pine straw up there, some several times a week.
Had a request for another cord, but was too far even with an additional delivery fee. Got a call last night and sold the second full cord and another this morning for the last. Ill have plenty of "bark on" BL for next Winter and maybe a cord of barkless. Hafta get hoarding on the barkless.
Third cord customer got half his load this afternoon. Close to me which was great. He wants to wait a couple weeks for the rest which is fine by me. Second cord guy getting his on Sunday.
Had to shovel my way to the stack. 12"+ from Monday- Tuesday
It must hurt a little to have it gone. Now you'll have to get busy replacing it!
It does kind of in a way. I really busted my hump hoarding all that a year ago. I have maybe half of it replaced already including what i split today. If i end up with green BL splits that are heartwood and no bark they will end up in the stack too.
Have scores of it up my sleeve so i can refill. The guy from yesterday may become a regular for it...woo hoo. He showed me the "seasoned"wood he bought...lots of fresh split red oak.
