    Default After 2 Husqvarnas, I finally bought a Stihl!

    I've always used Husqvarna products for about 20 years, yet hearing so much about how good Stihl's are, I figured it was time to try one. So I finally bought a Stihl.

    Yep, not too bad, it worked pretty good, well, once I tied some twine around it so that it doesn't fall forward off my head. Other than that easily fixable design flaw, it's a good product.

    I have 5 Stihls and one Husqvarna. Not one like that. Good chuckle tonight.

    Nice, I can only assume the Husky dealer was a little further drive!

    After 5 repair trips to the Stihl repair shop, for problems with the head section of my pole saw, I was told by the repair guy that I was using the saw for the wrong thing. It seems that it isn't really intended to cut limbs down, just branches. I guess I'm gonna have to go rent a lift truck so I can reach my limbs with my Echo Chain saw..
