Stihl MS 660
« on: April 10, 2018, 07:47:33 PM »
I have a lot of trouble starting this chainsaw.  Sometimes it pulls the handle out of my hands.  I even switched to a full "emergency responder" style Stihl handle with no success.  Has been at the shop for about a month now, so I assume they're searching also.  Any clues?
