Chainsaw reliablity
« on: February 09, 2018, 03:40:04 PM »
I spoke to soon in a previous message about my Dolmar 5105. It's now in for a new coil. 3 1/2 years old. Is it me or is that you can't buy a saw that lasts more than a few years? Repair guy says (yes I trust him) that some coils go forever and some don't work out of the box. Last year he brought in 3 new coils for a Husky and none worked. Fourth one did. I'm careful and maintain all my equipment. I also run a 372 xp Husky and a T540 xp. Good luck so far with them. This fix will be about $200.00. From what I've been reading here I may try a Stihl MS 261cm. Any thougths?

200 bucks for a coil.

Man I howled at the 80 (ALASKA bucks) for the last husky coil I bought.

If you could only have one chainsaw (to do it all)?
