Bought my ms 271 from faribault farm and home March 25. Used it about 2 hours every other week till September 17 when it blew.
Took it to dealer service for warranty work, seems like there is a pattern here... My fault, old gas, too much ethanol, maybe water maybe no oil (they can't tell?) blah blah blah.
BS, gas was fresh, mid grade per manual, oil was stihl and over mixed for safety.... They won't cover it, the mechanic won't even give me a written explanation of what his diagnosis is for the reason of denial
Review about: Stihl Ms 271 Farm Boss Chainsaw.
