A buddy as run into some health issues and consequently money is tight. He has a bike that needs some engine work and instead of cash, he brought over a saw that he had received for some tree work last summer. Turns out the thing is a Stihl MS362, 18" bar (laminate, but stihl brand and two new full chisel stihl chains.) The saw had never even been run till I put fresh mix and ran it. It has ten minutes on it, just warmed it up and ran it in some ash. And there are two more 66pitch chains I will send with it as I cannot use them.
At first i thought what the hay- may as well have another new reliable saw in the midsize range on the shelf. But it looks weird in amongst the Huskies on the shelf, and i have others in this size as well, but huskies...
So any one have a huskie that they might want to swap with a Stihl? I haven't really got what this would be on the shelf for new into it, and it is not on the shelf at the store anyway, but I need to find it a good home.
I will post some picks later today

I feel like this post make me seem like some sort of "Saw Snob" and it may be true, but I have gone back and forth for a couple weeks, can't sleep at night (Don't seem to have any problems with eating) and can't help but notice the presence of a color inconsistent with the others on the shelf. There is one small J-Red on the shelf, and another orange German made saw and a blue and a yellow and a .......
But something about this poor unloved stepchild, I need to find it a loving home where it will be with it's family and then the balance of the universe can be reset.
And I LOVE all saws, it is just that this one has not got a spot in my ultimate plan, I did not have it on the "list of saws to aquire"
Thanks for listening, I needed to tell someone, I know you guys understand:meh:

If only it were a 361... :(

I used to be a stihl snob to the 33rd degree, but now have a whole gaggle of all different flavors. No Bologna or strato in the bunch though....

If only! I think it is kind of like a Huskie 460, but a Stihl so it costs a lot more new.

So the saw has been living in the truck cab for the last few days, with the intention of pulling it out to put up pics here, and had no time!! today will get some pics up one way or the other and post them as promised.

What kind of Huskies are you interested in? I'm putting some bigger ones together and I might have a local customer interested in a newer mid-sized saw.

Something I don't have, I guess, haven't got my heart set on any thing, really. I have no sub 55cc pro saws. I guess that is the hole I should fill in. I have been lusting over one of them new five hundred something that Huskie has out now, but anything in that range would be welcome.

Bob (Spike) actually has the saw as of today. He is going to see if he can sell it and maybe help me turn it into a 550/555/560 long with some cash. I am still open to trades in the 50-60 range, Bob will ship to whoever if I make a deal before he finds a buyer

If Bob has it, then it should sell fairly quickly.
