Repeated carburetor problems on string trimmer and blower. They start but don't run with power, or don't start at all. Each failure requires a costly carb replacement. I always used Stihl oil, and last year started using the ethanol free 50:1 pre-mix. It doesn't...

I am so tired of the stihl Edger (FC 90) I purchased 2 years ago. I have had nothing but problems with this product. I have had both the Stihl dealer and a small engine professional work on this edger, to no avail. After putting more into tune up's than the original...

The Stihl ms193t is a royal piece of *** for $359 they can take it and shove it it will barely start and when it does start you cut two or three little lambs and it stalls I didn't spend this kind of money for a piece of *** it's going back to Agway in Binghamton New York ASAP and anyone I will see I will tell him not to buy this particular model it must be a lemon

I take my product in under warranty and get it back and the next two times that I use it it breaks again the guy that is fixing it under warranty I feel is not doing it right so now I've got a blower without a pull string and the Springs inside of it I don't want to take it back to the same place I have only had this product for eight months

Similar issue with Stihl. I am a professional builder and have been using Stihl for many years. In the last year I have blown up two saws with less than 15 hrs on each unit. We use thesesaws for light work, small notches, some brushing and shaping in log and timber...

You fail to mention which model. Let me guess, lol, a MS170 or MS180, the cheapest model they make designed for "light duty" use designed for backyard homeowner limbing and pr...

Bought saw 3/7/17 used less than 2 hours (on and off). The saw wouldn't start back up. Had to take it in for repair 3/11/2017. Store manager said it was my husbands fault (said he ran the saw with chain break on, my question to him is how is that even possible?), "not...

Stihl has gone to ***, four pro series saws less than a year and a half old are not fixable and one - 261 has never ran, even after being replaced once. I had a 036 stihl I got new in 2001 and it ran for 11 years with only one carburetor replacement and that's after...

My nearly new Stihl MS271 chainsaw would not re-start after fueling so I took it to the dealership for repairs under warranty. They advised the saw lost compression because the cylinder was scored and the piston and rings were shot. They further advised that upon...

I I bought my chainsaw in November. Used it approximately 1 1/2 hours and the starter rope broke. Brought it back to Runnings and they fixed it while I waited. No complaints from me. Used it once and the rope let loose from the handle and is now inside the housing....

Bought this saw new 30 years ago and absolutely love it! Have used it every year cutting fire wood without a moments trouble until last year when it needed some serious cleaning. But that was entirely my fault for neglecting it. After some cleanup and new air filter,...
