Can't beat the chainsaws...

But the Magnum BR600 i have gets beat by my LCO's Shindies...I do like the Shindy handheld edgers and trimmers as well...I would like to buy an MS260 Pro as well as a 660&880 before they get discontinued...I think the MS260 has already been discontinued actually...

Gas Caps..

i don't see what the big deal is with the gas caps? I think people have to find something to complain about since i don't have any issues with the gas cap..

Homeowner here:

FS90R Trimmer

BG86 Blower

SG20 Backpack Sprayer

Looking to get a saw.. will probably look at the 362.. it seems to be the best of both worlds. Pricey though!

Oh, and I have zero issues with the gas caps.. I like them better than the screw on ones my dad's Echo stuff has.

I'm probably a Stihl junkie; we have tons of their stuff. All of our stick equipment and blowers are Stihl. I don't even consider buying anything else.

The thing about Stihl is not only is it good equipment, but its got great brand appeal as well, I can say that im proud to own such fine products. My dealer is awsome, he's been selling Stihl for over 40 years, and really takes care of the customers. Gotta have a good dealer or even the best equipment will seam like junk.

I have Stihl mostly because that's what my dealer chooses to sell me. Just put it on a synthetic diet and it'll start.
Good to know! I just bought my first stihl blower and am looking at a edger and trimmer. Need a few more accounts first LOL eventually I want to be all stihl! it's mostly all you see around here.
