Don't think many will put much credence in your assumption.  ;D
Can't sell much by trying to run the other brands in the ground.  ;)

I've run Husky and Stihl, and prefer Stihl. Also Chevy's, Ford, and Toyota, gotta say the GM product required the most maintenance.  So everybody has an opinion, just like other things.

I had to ask someone younger than me what (EDITED) meant, and that kind of vulgarity (even in code) has no place on this Forum. Jeff, are you listening?

I moved this here for now.  Seems mnmdad doesn't like to play well with others and has brand lock.
Looking back at his posts, in 3 of them he gives members phone numbers on who to call.

I'll move this back now. Its been sanitized and should no longer be an issue since mnmdad is no longer welcome here. Some things don't require a second chance and this guy aint getting one.

As far as mnmdads assertion that sthils are subpar, mine seems to be coming into its own the more i run it .And the true measure of any tool or vehicle to me is that it works pretty steady, and i am able to feed my two little daughters and my family .i don't try and break any speed records just chug along .so far so good  :)

I bought an MS261 right before they started making them with the autotune.  its been a great saw for the past couple of years.  I take care of it and it takes care of the wood.  No complaints.

And I have a '93 Ford F-250 that runs beautifully.  But everyone has their preferences.
