Hope you never have any of their equipment break down. They will not help you, just make excuses of how it was your fault. I had a leaf blower for a year and a half with 5 to 7 hours on it. Using it one day and it got hot. Took it to local dealer under warranty. Place...

My Stihl trimmer developed a fuel line problem so I took it to a dealer to have it repaired. The dealer stated it would be ready in two days. Two days later I went back and asked if it was done, it wasn't and I was told another two days. I went back three days later...

Stihl - Junk MS 170 chainsaw

I bought a new Stihl ms 170 chainsaw. Used it twice. It was running good when I put it up. Tried to use it again and it wouldn't start. I took it to the dealer and he informed me that the piston was scored from dirt getting inside it?? And yes the filter was still clean. Basically got told I was screwed. And that my warranty expired a week ago.

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

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...
