Buy Stihl parts online w/ parts lookup?
« on: April 01, 2008, 09:29:17 AM »
Does anyone know of a good online source for Stihl parts?  I would prefer a site that has a good parts lookup system.

Thanks

Stihl won't like them making that link available, they don't want parts ordered on line ;).

your probably right , but it is handy and convenient while it works and even if you have to go to the dealer to order your parts at least when the parts clerk says " Is that the part you want ?" you have already  looked at the ipl and have a part number .
it also comes in handy for reassembly (you know that short term memory thing  :)

Can't say much for Stihl parts, but this is the best link I've seen for Husky, Kohler, Homelite. Echo  and others.

I don't think Stihl has an online parts lookup, but this site has a really good resource for Stihl parts and other manufacturer parts lookup: www.buchallase.com

There is no online source to buy parts from Stihl... find a dealer.

Just noticed www.stihlpartslookup.com went up. Maybe just a resource for Stihl Parts?

Not a source for parts - just someone's blog site with a bunch of useless stuff on it.    ::)

Here's what you'll find on on line Stihl parts .Unless someone has a cache of new old stock which some do it's "bootleg " parts and will usually cost you more than a dealer .

I've seen them try to sell flippy caps for a 200T for 12 bucks plus shipping you can buy from a dealer for 9 dollars .That's just one example .

I had a site one of our members posted a while back with parts pages on all Stihl models http://www.smaf-touseau.com/rubrique/eclates-tronconneuses-thermiques.html?id_rubrique=275 I went to look up a part # the other day and it was shut down. I take it Stihl found out it was online and shut it down. the company is very protective of there products and will not tolerate any parts look up what so ever. any one have a link to another one.

If you "google" real good you can find the parts lists .I won't supply any links because of Stihls anal retentive attitude towards things though .

I like the products but don't like the old school attitude of controlling all knowledge of the stuff of which try as they may have never been totaly successfull at .Following that statement 1,000 Stihl dealers got red in the face . :D

I just love to rattle their cages ,can't help myself ,great sport . 8)

Al, anal retentive is an understatement. I as you truly love there products, but they do go overboard on it. when I get in a bind I will search again and bookmark another site to see it fall after its found out :D. Tim

Here's the deal on that .A few years ago several of us attempted to get a repository together with every known saw every made with IPLs
 and parts numbers .It included people from all over the world .

I along with others spent months copying many including Stihl IPL's .I was later told to stop for fear that company would get their tail feathers out of joint if they were ever posted on line .

On reason I won't post a whole lot of IPL's on line is to save the praticular site it's posted on from the wrath of the almighty Stihl .However on that I along with dozens more have the ability to look up many brands of saws parts numbers .I won't send them however through either a web site nor a PM of that site .

Really though if it's a flea bay part they tell you what it fits and a dealer can look it up which is who you otherwise would be dealing with .

The actualy service manuals don't tell you a whole lot if you already know  how to turn a wrench on a saw anyway .Oh some things maybe  but most including myself already had if figured out before we ever saw a service manual .

If you're really intersted in it just keep watching flea bay .They pop up every so often.

It's too bad they have to be that way too - you'd think they'd get wise and let those of us that know how to fix things, fix them, and those that THINK they know and mess things up, mess them up so they get more business by having a new saw come back to the dealer.   ::)

It does,nt bother me that the company is trying to protect what is there,s in the first place. but they need to get into the 21 century and have a web site that will let you get into the IPL,s so that I can order over the internet or call the dealer and tell them I need this part# instead of going down in the truck and wasting time and fuel.

Big companys today are on a course to eliminate the small local dealer and the personal service that built their companys.Insted they want mega-dealerships with slick glad handing salesmen that make you feel your older equipment belongs in a museam.They are handing business over to foreign companys on a silver platter.You go into your local guy you've done business with for 40 years and he says JD has pulled my dealership,but he has a curry smelling tractor that looks good at half the price,you trust him,what are you going to buy??

I won't mention the name of the one dealer I use but I can order parts over the phone . The one within two miles of me I'll ever use again and drive 15 miles to the one I consider the best ever .

I'll also mention Scott again from chainsawr a sponser of this site .He has a lot of stuff not even listed on his site and sells used stuff very reasonable .Something to keep in mind .

Stihl also sponsors this website. I think its fine to discuss things that bother you, things you like, things you dont like, old ideas, better ideas but I DO NOT think it is okay to make derogatory remarks such as Frank, bandmiller2  made a few posts ago about a forum sponsor. This topic talks about coming into the future, well Frank, World war two has been over for 70 years.

We have members that work for stihl, we have members that are stihl dealers. We even have an admin that is a stihl dealer. We have very happy and dedicated Stihl owners. There is no reason why all of you can't discuss these sort of things without insulting your fellow members. Believe me, I know when people are being insulted as I'm the first in line to hear about it.
