How much does an MS 290 STIHL chainsaw cost?
It’s at a fantastic price point of $379.95 which is bound to be a thorn in Husqvarna’s side ($419.95 for the 455 Rancher IIRC). Yup, the 290 is old tech and heavy but old, slow, and reliable has a pretty good following. I think Stihl will sell 290’s as long as the EPA will let them.
