Stihl 036
« on: April 12, 2012, 02:11:14 pm »
What would you guys in the business of taking trade ins allow? or anyone else with input give me your 2 cents worth, OK a nickles worth.

Needing more knowledge then I have on trade in value on a clean looking 036 pro with issues and rebuild time.

The saw still runs but is on it's last leg feeling underpowered at 120psi in the cut.  The piston does have some scuffing and havent pulled the cylinder to see if it will be reusable ( my guess it will be with just light scuff on piston). No clue on bearings and seals yet.

Otherwise the saw is a clean homeowner owned firewood saw.

Guy is wanting to trade it in on one of my  bigger used huskys.

Bigger Husky's as in a 372?? I do love my 036 PRO. Torqier than a 262, It will pull a longer bar IMO.

Something in the 71cc 72cc 76cc range. 

He would be happy with the new rebuilt 362xp he said. Only thing I got way to much into it. New oem crank, tank, etc.

Wish I had a 365 top laying around.

I think it's a tough call .You don't want to screw yourself or this other guy .

Maybe  whatever the saw would be worth if in good condition market value minus the parts and your labor at standard shop rates .I doubt seriously if a Stihl dealership would give much for this saw .

Then if you think about it if the parts were OEM Stihl and it was the P and C you could get more in it than what it's worth if you figured it like that .

If it's just the piston 40 bucks for a Metior  piston and 2 hours labor give or take .My way of thinking about a 100-125 shop rates for the labor plus incidentals of maybe 15 plus 40 for the piston .Subtract that from maybe 250 tops for the saw puts the value at less than 100 .Just my opinion .

Agree with Al!  My .02.  If the plastic is real nice 20% of new is max I will put in a trade like you mentioned.  I've lost money on every one I put more in.

Oh I'm not much of a horse trader with few expections .Plus I'm a tightwad about paying much for a saw .At one time I very niavely got caught up in big McCullochs but since if they aren't rare ,have fast potential or extremely cheap I have little interest in any of them .

You know they made millions of chainsaws .It's not like any special one is any better than the other of the same brand and model number .Might be in condition though .

They like to brag them up ," ported by so and so " big deal they aren't the only person in the world that can rework an engine fer cryin out loud .

On a deal like this  it seems to me that whatever is comfortable with one another is the way to persue it . Kevin has the ability to repair saws and 95 percent of saw owners do not so that is worth something IMO .

I would allow him $50-75. If it is in excellent cosmetic condtion, then you could go up without risking too much.

I got the 036 pro trade in today along with a Springfield J. Stevens double barrel 16ga shotgun with walnut stock and forearm.  Best part was the pint of KY blueberry  ;D ;D ;D

Came with a 20" 3/8 bar and some weird orange oil cap  ???   It starts, runs and cuts. Just needing some TLC with the 120psi.
