Stihl fs94r pull start blew up today

We purchased 2 new ones last month and they have been awesome machines until today. Seems like from the looks of it the plastic inside the pull start got to hot or sonething and locked up and came apart in a handful of pieces. I'll be calling the dealer in the morning to see able replacement under warranty. I hope this isn't a sign of what's to come

Sure hope the dealer takes care of it. The FS94 seems to represent Stihl's shot at getting back in the mainstream trimmer market. They need to stand behind this machine to win back those that weren't happy with the 4 mixes.

I sure hope so. I called the dealer to see if they had the part in stock, they didn't, so I basically said I'll be there in the morning and they can pull the part off a new machine

It is unfortunate but we do run into this with new machines, even years ago, it's nothing new, why I like to hang on to them when I find some that run good... You just have to hope, with Stihl the good news is they rarely produce a lemon, but even with them it could happen, I think I've had one or two in the past 13 years that simply gave up the ghost long before their time, hopefully yours it's just a glitch that can be fixed, good luck.
