I bought my second Stihl after being told that the first one burned up due to a gas mixture not given enough feul additive. Thinking I had made the mistake, I bought another one. This one was the MS291 with a 20 inch bar. A year and a half later I took it to the repairman because it wasn't working right. He just told me the cylinder looked like I had use jet feul. As a result of the first chainsaw, I increased the amount of additive I was... Read more

Replaced my trimmer, chainsaw and blower this year with Stihl. Big mistake. They're ***. Hard to start! Very easy to flood and if you do you're done unless you want to remove the spark plug and air it out. Pull cords are thin and flimsy. One broke on my trimmer like the 10th time I used it. I've been really disappointed. Thought I was paying more for a quality product. I won't buy their products again. Read more

On 29 May 2016 I bought a new HS-46 C hedge trimmer. The trimmer worked fine through the Summer. It is used at the condominium where I live. Then, the following year, I started trimming our shrubs again in June and found that the trimmer was not running good at all. It would start fine but after about thirty minutes of run time, the trimmer would increase its rpm and the blade would start cutting and it would not idle. I figured that the carb... Read more

I took my Stihl blower in to see why it didn't work on 8/1/16. Dan said it didn't pass the carburetor test and wanted to replace the carb and fuel filter for over $100.00. That didn't really tell me what was wrong, so I emailed Stihl customer service. What a mistake. JD said the carb was bad due to the fuel. He hadn't looked at it so that info must have come from Dan. I told him I had several machines and none of them went bad in such a... Read more

I have had this saw for about one month and out of that time period I've used it about two weeks. After about 2 hours of use the saw becomes very hard to start and when it starts it won't stay running. Took it to the place I purchased it, the first time they said it was fix, used it for about 2 hours and the same problem. Called them back and was treated like dirt. Took it to another shop, its been their 8 days and they haven't touch it. No one... Read more

Stihl came out with the m-tronic ignition system that they say Quote: "provides optimal performance under varying conditions." This is a bunch of *** ! I have had nothing but problems with this saw. there are not any screws to adjust the carb, i took it to the dealer and was told that's how it is. I told them i would contact stihl and never heard from anyone. Stihl is supposed to be sold at independent servicing dealers and now is every where.... Read more

Never buy one again. Seems many parts that stihl uses are made in china. Good luck getting replacement parts. I picked up a homelite at home depot while i wait for a new carb. The homelite is great.

WHAT A JOKE, the ruddiest representative ive ever spoken with. Less than 5 hours on the machine and it stops running, cant be repaired according to Stihl. They claimed a small amount of white dust destroyed the blower, due to improper maintenance. It had 5 hours on it and never blew anything but grass clipping from Sidewalks. Buy anything but Stihl, their absolutely worthless.
