After a milling saw for sale

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

Im wanting to get into chainsaw milling but after reading the forum im in need of a bigger saw than the ones I've got.

 

Just wondering if there are any saws out there that people know are for sale?

 

Ive been offered the new stihl MS661 for £735 inc vat from my local dealer. But im not to fussy if theres a second hand saw out there that would do the job.

 

Cheers

Sure that's inc vat? Seems too cheap (fr jones is £810 without bar), also 661 aren't being sold anymore, the 660 has been bought back for a while.

Ha ye its mates rates. I get it at not much more than cost to the store.

That's good about the 660 tho. I wasn't really bothered about the new 661. Ive bought a 261, 201t and a 150 all from new and had problems with them all ! but the 660 is tried and tested.

Cheers

Try a stihl 051 for a mill saw, plenty of torque, much cheaper to buy

eBay, you can pick them up for £200 ish, though you can sometimes pick up an 075/076 on there too
