My STIHL MS 390 chain saw, that I paid over $500 for, burned up after less than 50 hours or use. I followed all of the recommended maintenance procedures.
I had just put fresh gas and oil mix in it and it still burned up according to the shop mechanic. According to him the new EPA tolerances are to tight and combined with the alcohol in all gasoline this has become a common occurrence in all STIHL produces. He stated that STIHL refuses to stand by their produces so the customer is left with JUNK!
I was told that if you buy a STIHL chainsaw you will have a reliable chainsaw for life.
This is a LIE!
I recommend you buy the cheapest one you can find or one with at least a four year warranty.
