    Default Stihl dealer has no saws

    I stopped my my dealer today to get some oil. A Mom and Pop dealer with great service. He had three saws on the wall. This spring it was full.

    I asked why so few. He said Stihl now requires you to pay up front before you sell them and he did'nt have enough cash to stock the wall.

    Does this mean only big dealers will survive?

    It means that dealer probably won't be there. Really, you can't sell from a empty cart. Local Stihl dealer here is the JD shop. Other places that sold Stihl went tits up.

    Why is there so many Echo Dealers and so few Stihl Dealers?

    Yeah, that's what I thoiught. I even mentioned that to them.

    There is a large tractor dealer about 20 miles from here that sells Stihl so I may have to go there eventually. I really like this little guy though. He takes trades too. Gave me 35 bucks for parts for my MS190T when an errant tree fell on it.

    That's interesting! The 1st one (closest at 1 hour away) is my kubota dealer and they don't have a Echo product in their place.

    The second one is over an hour away and is a furniture store, never been there?

    The rest are 2 hours or more away...

    Within an hour of me there are AT LEAST a dozon stihl dealers. Not counting Home Depot, I know of 1 Echo dealer (there are probably more though)

    They are all pretty well stocked with saws, parts not so much.
