They are in ACE Hardware's that can service what they sell. If the ACE can't service it, they don't have it. We have an ACE here and Stihl isn't anywhere in sight.

There is at least one around here, maybe some I don't know about. I'm just not sure the big box thing has anything to do with how the company does. In this economy everybody is scrambling for sales and some are being forced to make decisions that a few years ago were unthinkable.

They are in MFA here and ACE, niether service them.

I love my husqvarnas, they work circles around my sthils. I have a 6 yo 326 with 3500 hours at last count and that was 2 years ago. You cant stop them. I don't think them selling residental units at Lowe's effects their commercial sales or quality. Heck my Dixon's are nothing more than husqvarna pz and will out cut most mowers in the market.

Well fellas, you'll have to take that up with Stihl. They make the claim.

"Selling only through servicing Dealers"
