View Full Version : Good Deal? Stihl concrete saw

04-04-2009, 06:41 PM
I was planning on just buying a new 420 saw but you guys pushed me to go bigger and I found this http://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/tls/1092027656.html . I got the guy to $950 via email and was wondering if I should pull the trigger. I found the saw new for $1340 plus tax and was told the cart and water attachment run $600+. Also a couple of diamond blades are included. You guys probably have no use for the cart, but I'll be cutting in a lot of expansion joints in concrete.

call your local stihl dealers and find out how much they would cost if you bought one from them.

Then, you can decide if it's a good deal, or not.

Also, make sure it has a serial number and isn't hot. Cut off saws have a way of developing legs.

Local dealer wants $1340 plus tax. I'll make sure that it has serial numbers. How would I check to see if it's stolen?

nice rig. great setup for what you'll be doing. if it was truly used one time, it seems like a "steal". i'd jump on it.

Beware of knockoffs! Chinese made cutoff saws look very similar to the untrained eye.

I picked up the saw yesterday. It runs great, came with all the Stihl paperwork, and looks almost new. This ts800 with a 16" diamond is a night and day difference to the ts350 with abrasive wheel that I used years ago.

We just bought 24 blades, and got two saws for free.

How much were the blades and how do you like them? Did they give you two Ts800s? I know most of those promotions are for Ts420s.

2 420's.......couple thousand, but the blades should last us all year
