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.

Product or Service Mentioned: Stihl Ms 170 Chainsaw.

Reason of review: Bad quality.

I bought a MS 170 used it a couple of times. My stepson used it and a small part that holds the kill switch on the engine housing broke.

Took it in to repair, was told it was my fault and repair was 300.00 dollars. Really poor design on that one.

Not even a good boat anchor now. Contacted customer service...they didn't seem to care much.
