Thought of ole Al on this saw. New stihl 381

I had a brand new MS381 in my hands at a Mexico dealership while on vacation last winter. Could have signed the deal with a little over $500 US in my pocket, but the dealer had all his new saws on display fully fueled up.
...............I wasn't going to risk leaving a paid for new saw with the smell of gas on it behind at the Puerto Vallarta airport customs.
Great looking upgraded 038.

Now that I think of it. It was a little over $600US without b/c, not $500. Easy to get lost in the translation in Mexico converting pesos etc.  :D

About 10 years ago I had a call looking for an 070. "You want a WHAT???" I had not seen one since the mid 70's. A call to our rep confirmed they were still being made for the mahogany loggers in south east Asia. My customer wanted one as carry on luggage as that would be a lot cheaper than buying locally.
