Home owner wanting to make the plunge from electric
« on: February 25, 2014, 05:23:32 pm »
I've a friend that is thinking about going onto CraigsList to buy a chainsaw, he might find something decent there, or he could get burned.  He has some experience (if that's what you want to call it) with an electric chainsaw and wants to move up to a gas saw.  It does not need to be a Husky, but since I'm a Husky guy, and I've seen all of the brotherhood on this forum, I figured that I'd get some useful advice from you guys for him.  Any recommendations?  He saw my 257 with a 16" bar in action today, and definitely doesn't need or want anything bigger than that.

LOL, I believe that you have more than one...  Speaking of the 257's, I'm going to start a new subject on my 257.

Already read that and your answer is in that post, and mine does not leak fuel!

Tim, that looks like a great saw for the money.  First of all, I'm glad that I'm not looking for another saw, otherwise I'd be tempted, and second, I have a feeling that my friend was going through "chainsaw envy" when he was working with me.  My 257 just ate up his 50' pin oak, turning the whole thing into a pile of firewood in about 2 hours.  He hasn't brought it up since then.  I've got to give my friend credit for keeping up with the brush removal as I was cutting up the tree, it really made it easy to work, and pin oaks have a lot of limbs.

Why would your buddy take down a 50 foot pin oak, those are beautiful trees!

And squirrels just love the pin oaks for the acorns
