I am on my 2nd TS800 due the crankcase cracking behind the coil mounts. Both saws have cracked in the identical place.
This appears to be a weak spot on this saw. When you have had 2 saws break in the same place there has to be a issue. I have had TS400 used them till they would not run anymore, nothing has ever broken.
The repair cost is very high. This should never happen with a saw of this reputation, Also have owned many STIHL chainsaws and no issues, the TS 800 I have has many years left on it, but due to the crack its toast.
Reason of review: Damaged or defective.
Monetary Loss: $1500.
Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
I liked: All products until this issue.
I didn't like: 2 saws breaking in the same place.
