 It's close to Christmas, take off $125 if the have good compression. The 028 is a good saw.    Steve

Yeah, compression is probably the important thing.

If they don't have that, then chances are they have major internal injuries.

If they have that then it could be as simple as a dud spark plug, old gas or maybe a carb rebuild. Either way, not expensive stuff to fix if you are mechanically inclined.

If they were good runners you might consider the $300, but if they don't run? ~$100 is more like it.

albirk, If both start and run and are in reasonable shape,$150.00 for 028 and $75.00 for the 011 is about the top of what I would pay or trade. Tim

Then tell him to sell the saws and then you can settle up.

I think you nailed the value of about 100 bucks .The 028 might be worth it and the 011 just tossed in the deal as a freebie .The one of  those models I have in the shed was a freebie for what that's worth .Same deal get hot ,no run no mo.

IMO paying 300 for mess like  that is paying to inherit somebody elses' problems .At a garage  sale or flea market  they'd be lucky to fetch 50 for the pair if they don't run .

If the saws have been sitting for 2 years and the gas was left in them I  would dump the gas replace the filter and maybe fuel line. If the compression is above 120lbs you should be good. If you can get the saws running you can get at least $200-$250 on Ebay for the 028 and at least $100 for the 011. I think you should be fine knocking off $100 of the bill if you are willing to do a little work on the saws.
Saws: Husqvarna (3)372XP, (2)575XP, 395XP, (2)141, 385XP and a Stihl 090....

This reply doesn't answer the question "What are they worth", but; I'd wait for him to pay the $300 and not mess with the saws.

--or get the saws,the lawnmower,the pick up truck and the dog and hold them as collateral until the 300 gets payed off .Maybe leave the dog out because you'd have to feed it .

Geeze imagine feeding a St Bernard half grown pup.50 pounds of dog food and one mailman a  week . :D

I'll write him a check for $150... take the saws... and leave him still owing you the $300.   :D

They're both excellent little saws when tuned up good..

And then come back later for the lawnmower, truck, and dog. 

You can always retrain the dog Al - guy comes by to get his stuff back and his own dog won't let him near it... Classic!!    :D

 :D Well I never looked at it from a dogs point of view but with that in mind I suppose the leg of a dead beat would be just as tastey as leg of mailman . Hmm perhaps that would  be a good new taste sensation to sell dog food .

 :D For 350 bucks I could get a pick up truck full of saws that don't run .

Here's the way I look at it .If say the carb needs rebuilt it's the price of the carb plus what a dealer would charge plus some money for the frustration of the whole thing .

If the thing won't run figure the worst  case scenerio ,it's a parts saw .
