I was wondering if $279.00 is a good price for the 242. Looked at one and it seeed to be buily pretty well, lite, and decent power. Tell me what you guys think of the 242 and if this is a good price?

I picked up a T242 two weeks ago. Lighter than my T231 and alot more power. The cheapest I found them around here was $299. Mine came with the smaller speed feed head on it. Wasnt sure how I was going to like that...but its been fine. You can always put a larger on too.

$279.95 is the list price (from our distributor anyway, different areas that are serviced by different distributors will have different retail prices that they release to their dealers, as some will "buy down" the price on them to have them retail at a lower price)

$285.95 is the list price here in NY. We don't stock any T242's, only the T242X which comes blade-capable, those list for $301.99 here.
