Re: What saw are you looking for ?

I had been looking for an 036/MS361 but now after my 039 turned out pretty well I guess I'm not looking so hard. I don't really need anything for my line up as I filled the gaps.

The main type of saw I am always looking for is the 1127 series Stihls. I realize these saws are disparaged on the forums but they sell well and are relatively cheap to repair with Chinese parts. I haven't done a side by side comparison but I think the Chinese (hutzl) cylinders I put on these saws run stronger than the stock ones. (they look completely different inside as the aftermarket ones don't have the finger ports. At any rate, I buy them as I find them but good looking ones bring a high price even scored. I like to get them for about $50 if scored and I've paid as much as $200 for runners in the MS290 flavor.
