I would suggest to post photos of your own. not copies of photos from FaceBook.
and photos of the name plates on any power tools you want to sell.
estimated age of tools, did they belong to a tree cutting service or individual homeowner ?

If I ran across a running 039 for $100, I’d jump all over it Patrick. In fact, if you’d ship it, I’ll do exactly that. And you can keep the 028 and sell it for a little boot :-)

any gas powered tool or machine should be THOROUGHLY cleaned
and drained of ALL fluids and bagged in several yard trash bags when shipped.
any remote whiff of gasoline in the USPS, FEDEX, UPS, DLS or other service
will surely get it pulled aside for inspection – which ties up the inspector’s time and resources.

Patrick, It looks by your posts that you are buying a lot of stuff and asking “What’s it worth” I can only hope you already know the low amount. If you are establishing the high amount with your purchase it is going to be a long year ahead for you.

I’m going to clean them all up, get better pictures, and come back with a better post when I do

Sorry, I kinda got excited when I saw “running 039” and ”$100” together and didn’t really address your question :-)

The 039 if it is cleaned up, holds compression and starts easily and runs without issue throughout the throttle range is probably a $250-300 saw depending on your location.

A saw that won’t start is only good to somebody who wants, and knows how to, fix it and resell it. It’s unlikely you’ll get $100 for that one.

not many people want to pay for stuff that isn’t in working condition. A chainsaw expert might, but most folks will want to see the saw start up and maybe cut some wood.

Have your say...
