got to agree. stihl is the best. bought a stihl commercial type back pack leaf blower at a pawn shop 3 years ago ($60). it was and is still used to open up and maintain several miles of bike trails around here. that same pawn shop had a stihl chain saw with a 20" bar for $186 the other day. looks like I will be trying to crack a deal with them again when I get my credit back for the craftsman. really apreciate you guys input....cheers from sunny salem alabama usa... :thumbup:

The pawn shop sounds like a great place to pick up power tool, electronics, etc. bargains. Got a friend who has picked up several things. With the economy like it is, there may be even more opportunity. :thumbup:

Like anything else, but in this case powertools, you need to know what to look for when buying someone else's used equipment. Main thing is getting a good price just in case some repairs are needed before use.
