What saw is on your list to find?   

I'm just looking on the cheap for poulan 3000 even though I have a Craftsman 3.0 in grey.  Found a builder not so cheap for what it is but still more then I'd pay.
Wouldnt mind finding a cheap stihl 261 builder still stock.
Maybe a husky 242.
partner 7700 710 660 are always on my want list.  But pretty rare even abroad.  Not into shipping saws in from abroad just to add to my saws.  ::)
Be neat to check out that husky 572xp.  ;D

Key words CHEAP for a cheapazz  ;) :D

Out of necessity, I'm also doing the saw thing on the CHEAP.  Got more saws than I 'need' by a long stretch.  Thinning the herd..........adding to it...................thinning the herd again......................adding more saws again.  Neverending cycle.

For the most part, it's not a matter of finding a saw (or 'looking' for it).........it's finding one cheap enough that's still worth putting time/money into.  Here's my 'big list'.  Some are practical, others are 'pie in the sky'.
