Some of us cant afford one f these.

I found this local guy north of me his 3rd one used for $10,000 years ago. I dont have a clue how much they are new.

But anyhow he is up to 5 of them this year.

Per David Smith at CCC Racing at his stihl shop down by him.

Ballpark is $26,000, there are a few options to make it cleaner or faster that can add to the price.
In the local Stihl dealership they love it, in 6 minutes it will do a chain nicely unattended and a light on top signals when it is time to stick a new chain on it. The machine is in the middle of the 2 cycle area of the shop and which ever tech sees it first swaps chains and goes back to whatever he was doing. It runs 8 hours a day with minimal maintenance, and they are able to keep the wait time for drop off chains usually in the 2-3 day timeframe. They can slip an emergency chain into the que if needed. Many tree services drop off 100 or more at a time and get special pricing. They could not hire an additional tech for a year for $26K, even before benefits, taxes, etc. They love it.

Stihl dealer in CRG said they were $18,000 new.  I was told 15K years back. 


If those 44"-60" come here. I told him going up to him. So mise well send them himself.  I hate doing longer chain and bulk of them at that.
