You may be right--they are sorta built like toys!

Just had to say that--don't really have anything against Stihl--not much experience with them!

IIRC, Santa has elves, not dwarfs, and they all prefer to be called little people now.

by the name of Stihl A.G. (which stands for Aktien-Gesselschaft, the german equivalent of our Inc.).
Stihl is thus a German product, made in Germany by a German corporation.

Ryobi I believe is Japanese but I'm not sure, however they are most certainly not the same company, not at all.
Not sure where you got your facts from, but as others have metioned, Stihl opened up a manufacturing plant in Virginia back in the '70's, so the products sold in the U.S. haven't been made in Germany for a long time. Stihl also opened a manufacturing plant in China in 2008, so there's a good possibility that some of their products are made in China.
