Stihl Chainsaw's Why they are the Only Make I Buy

Stihl Chainsaws

I do not work for Stihl, nor do I make any money off of Stihl and they have never paid me to advertise for them. But I have owned many other makes of Chainsaws over the years and Stilh is the only one that I will Buy. First of all they are one of the leading Small Engine manufactures, and hand held gas powered tool makers In the world. They have a vast variety of tools available. I have owned over the years many of their different gas operated tools and have never had a complaint. Some I have run for ten years and never had serviced. When I own a tool it gets it share of use and abuse. Left in the rain and bounced around in the back of a Pickup truck, Muddy, dropped and almost any kind of abuse that you could think of. I will put it away and in the middle of winter throw some fresh gas in it and it starts right up. Yes I like to buy American tools. But NO one comes near their tools in performance and dependability.

One time in the middle of an ice and snow storm a big tree came down across my driveway. I had to get it removed because I had to go to work early in the morning. I had two chainsaws and my older son was there to help me. We tried the other make because it was newer and bigger. I worked for 30 minutes and it would not start. I went and got my old Stihl, put some fresh gas in it and it fired right up.

The Old Saw

Now I just bought a new one, my old one had a (terminal accident), as I like to call it. I was cutting a tree near my lake and I slipped when the tree started to come down and it fell into the lake and I am still trying to find it. I wonder if it will still start? I don’t really expect that to happen. It drowned, Autopsy Photos Available on Request.

The new one is a great deal. You buy the Saw and a Six pack of Stihl Oil you get a TWO year Unlimited Warranty, all parts and labor. I never use any other make of Oil Mix then the manufactures. Also I always use Medium Grade gas in it. It does not run as good on the cheap gas.

      Good hub Bill. I have a Stihl MS230C that I just bought off a friend. I have own various other chainsaws including McCulloch and Poulan, but they only lasted about two years before giving up. Everyone has been recommending Stihl and I borrowed one was by far better than the others. Started easier, more reliable. I am going to follow you because I made need advice on how to repair or build a lot of stuff in the furture. Voted up.
