Default Saw question for xyz

Wondering what an average trade in value would be for a 455 Rancher in fair but well used condition? Thinking about stepping up to an xp series or 365.

Oh man , this is too easy heus!

I'd say the value would be 4 pop cans and a stick of gum. :)

In all honesty a chainsaw is worth more to have as a backup than it is for trade. I would put a 16 inch bar on the 455 and use it for limbing. Buy a 365, 372, 570 or 576 and set that saw up with 20-24 inch bar for felling and cutting the big stuff. But if you insist on selling the 455 post the first 4 digits of the serial number and I will get a book value for you.

Xyz I figured that would be the case. I run a 20" bar on my 455 but I would like a little more power and speed. I want to be able to run a 24" bar. I lose massive sugars each year to the wind. Want something close to the 70cc range.
The 455 has been great, though. I have beat it to death the past 8 or so years.

Try a 16 inch bar on the 455 after you get a bigger saw, you will love it!

Just being honest. Those few pounds make a HUGE difference. I realized I was an idiot for even owning a saw that big.
