STIHL extremely difficult to start

Purchased a Stihl chainsaw for our personal use ( homeowner). 78, yes 78 average number of pulls to get the POS started. Don't waste your money. We purchased a Poulan for use in CO at our summer residence. Starts on about the third pull. And, the Poulan was less expensive.

The hardest of starts! Based on reputation I chose a Stihl as I already had an Echo chainsaw that performed like a champion, always, & wanted to move up. I believed I would be getting several years of technology updates as the digital world had advanced & QC should be...

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...
