    Default Big Jacks Tools?$

    Has anyone purchased a saw from them? Do you like it? Has it held up? What problems have you had?

    If you're not wearing your chaps ... very bad.

    I have a 266 husqvarna I bought 30 years ago for less than $300. I am still using it and would not trade it. For $110 even in this day and age I would not touch it.
    Working to increase the scope of the small tractor experience, one quick attach at a time.

    I used to have a 266se beore it got stolen. I had to put a new top end on it a few years before it was taken, but it always was a great running saw.

    A mild port job when I did the top-end, and it was cutting on par with the dolmar 120si and 6400's

    I bought a similar (probably identical) saw here in Canada for about $65 delivered to my door. After cutting up a big birch that blew over with it ,the trigger lock for starting departed for places unknown. I phoned and e-mailed the place I bought it from for replacement parts and eventually they sent me another complete saw for shipping only. The saw is nothing to write home about and I agree that a Poulin on sale for $100 is probably a better deal than the one you are looking at. JMHO

    I would look at it in the perspective if I have one pine tree to cut I might chance buying one but if I was using it as a real wood cutter I'd buy a major brand. I own a 55 Rancher {sweeden} and a husky 385XP that will last my lifetime. Buy a name brand and all you'll have to do is worry about sharpening your chain not
