Hi. As a noob, I am hoping for some advice on some 2nd hand equipment. I am starting out as a smallholder and looking to put up some outbuildings on a tight budget. I am planning on harvesting & milling some Douglas fir and am looking to buy a large enough chainsaw and a mill. I am looking at a 2nd hand Stihl 084AV (apparently hasn't worked much in the last 10 years, unknown history before that. Good compression, starts fine.) and a 48" granberg mill. Also included in the deal are: 48" bar, chain & rip chain, 36" bar & chain, 30" bar & chain. Spare piston rings, clutch springs & recoil spring. 2 questions: -What do you think of the asking price of £950? Seems high to me but that could just be me working to a tight budget... - Are replacement parts an issue for 084s? The seller reckons you can use MS880 parts and I was surprised by this. I haven't been able to find the specs, but my hunch is that piston and bearings wouldn't be compatible if anything else is? I'd be really grateful if you could share your wisdom and possibly prevent this noob on a budget from making an expensive mistake. Thanks.
