Thought I was making the right choice of spending a little more money, buying from local dealer.
Used no more than 5 hours..stopped running during idle..
seems like company's easy way out is to say ( Fuel Related Problems ) They were of no help .. no warranty. all my other similar small outdoor equipment , 2 cycle rotor tiller.. 2 cycle back pack leaf blower run fine using same fuel.
The cost they wanted to repair equals buying another trimmer. You can be sure it won't be Stihl. Neither Dealer or Headquarters of any help.
Save yourself some headaches another less expensive brand..right now I think I will shop for Echo.
