Why should one buy second hand saws, when he can buy a new device at affordable price? What makes second hand tools popular is their price. They are so cheap that one can’t prevent himself from buying a second hand tool. But on looking at the affordable new devices, one would certainly like to make a comparison between secondhand and new tools.
You want to buy a saw and your search takes you to the website of used chainsaws. You see a variety of saws on the website and you find them interesting. You are offered a latest technology saw at reduced price and it seems like an opportunity to buy a new device at cheap price. But you won’t be offered any money back or replacement guarantee with the second hand tool. If it develops a technical or mechanical snag then it has to be repaired or thrown out.
There is only one reason for buying used chainsaws and that is affordability. But could you compromise on the quality of the tool just for saving a few hundred dollars. Many people are unaware that buying saws from a manufacturer could be cheaper than buying saws from users. You should buy a new device from a manufacturer instead of buying a secondhand tool.
