Anyone thinking Stihl chainsaws are durability and reliability and worth the extra cash should reconsider. I purchased a 20" MS310 for light cutting around the home and in less than 3 years the Oil Pump failed and after 2 emails to Stihl and a week later this is their...

Bought Stihl ms250 3 years ago to cut about a dozen small trees. Worked well for 3 years with moderate use. The chain brake burned out and the chain is a boat anchor now and Stihl and the dealer couldn't care less. Gassed up the saw after 30 minutes use, fired it...

I had the exact same experience. The only difference is that I only had the saw for about 2 weeks. The dealer insisted that I was some kind of *** tearing into the throttle ...

My ms 250 is one month old. Harder than wholly *** to start. Dealer said don't leave the choke on for no more than 3 pulls. So I tried 3,2,1 and none. Also four pulls with cho...

Stihl string trimmer: Leaks fuel. This cCuld kill me. Dealer says the problem was caused by ethanol in the fuel. But I don't use fuel containing ethanol. The Trimmer head won't feed string. The dealer says to soak the string in cold water. That didn't...

I purchased a 361 chainsaw in Jan. 2009. I also purchased 500 Blower at the same time. The Blower starts every 1st pull and I couldn't be happier with it. The chainsaw has been the worst purchase I have ever made with Stihl. I haven't cut more than 10 hours and...

Stihl makes excellent products. I've ran & worked on all brands of chainsaws sold in the USA. Simply put, nothing comes close to a Stihl as far as quality of engineering & products. However, they sell their great products to idiots you who don't read owner...

Stihl MS-390, what a pile of ***. The on/off/choke switch has been screwed up from day one! The contact spring slides under the on/off/choke lever when fully choked for cold start up. The dealer has replaced the contact spring but same result. Can't turn the...

I\'ve own Stihl saws & both models mentioned. I bet that 390\'s problems are a result of you not using the master control lever properly. Especially after the contact was repl...

I purchased a Stihl 55 with edger and trimmer on 4/27/2010 from Mid-South Small Engine, Memphis,Tn. The unit RPM reduced by about 40% on 7/14/2010. The engine has aprox 40 hours of use. Mid-South Engine tells me it will take seven weeks to fix it. I am pissed because...

Ms250 Sthil. Folks, being my second post regarding Sthil, has got to make one take a real hard look, at this product, company, and the way it does buisness. Sthil has a closed door policy, regarding its dealers, warranty, and product. Their sales slogan, of nothing...

Unless its your fault! Stihl is way cheaper to fix! I would take a $30 carb over a $80 or more carb anytime!

I recently bought a new Stihl chain saw after damaging my old one (totally my fault.)I had my old one for 8 years and had no trouble at all. The new has a "toolless" caps on the gas and oil tanks which fold out for easy opening. On the back side there are "knobs" which...

I have owned a Stihl FS 100 4 mix String Trimmer for approx 2 years. It was suppose to be a "top of the line" machine and cost me almost $350. This trimmer from the time I bought it was not that easy to start. Another big disadvantage is that the oil used to be mixed...
