Is buying an older model Stihl better than a new one?  I have an older rebuilt that I think runs circles around my step dads brand new Stihl in the same size.  I have thought about a farm boss but am not so sure I want new.  Maybe on of you dealers or devoted long timers can chime in. 

I can literally go 1 tank to two of his when cutting side by side and mine does it quicker per slice

Oldchenowth, Its all about preferance on old to new. The problem with the old saws is some parts are no longer avalable, depending on how old. But the old saws will out perform the new ones most of the time. Alot of that is do to the fact the old ones are more broke in and our wonderfull goverment has the new ones very restricted compaired to the older saws or anything for that matter. The good thing about the new one is you will have warrenty on it and the fact that everybody likes new stuff! Also the new ones are alot smoother than most of the older saws, better dampning to kill viberation and better throttle responce. The problem with buying used is if you dont know what to look at before you buy it, you might buy a saw that is on its last season.

I have a Stihl MS 290 with muffler mod and carb screw turned all the way open.  It runs liked a raped ape and sounds like a dirtbike.

That's what I need to build. A YZ125 chain saw like those dudes in competition use.  Open a can of whoopass on 40 cords some Saturday.  1 day and the season worth of wood is done!

I'm in the process of buying a buddies used Joneserd.  I'm not sure what model it is, but he said he used it up until last winter when his recoil handle broke.  He had just bought a newer used saw at that point so he just put it away for the rest of the winter.  Its now at the shop getting a tuneup and the recoil broke.


$100 ain't bad for a first say eh?

I have a 16" Stihl MS270c for the bigger stuff I cut. I've had it for about 7 years now and I've yet to see another comparable saw scream like mine does. My limb saw is a 14" Stihl MS 180c. It's super lightweight and does a good job on the smaller stuff.

My father in law has a couple Husky's and they're not bad either, also a bit cheaper than the Stihls.
