    If you bought any Echo equipment that was made in 2003, you might want to see if it is in the recall regarding the unit(s) catching on fire.

    Dude:

    Just about every new product that Stihl has put out in the last 10 years has been recalled for potential fire hazards. They lead the world in factory recalls.

    Echo's is a simple fuel line replacement.........no biggie.

    Was at my dealer on Friday last week and they asked if my trimmer was on the truck and I said "yep". They told me to bring it in to see if it was on the recall list and it was.

    Thought that was pretty cool that they brought it up without me even knowing about it. They replaced the fuel lines and I was on my way. Nice to have dealers like that.

    If you filled out your warranty info correctly, you should get something in the mail.

    NOW that's Service! Like they say you get what you pay for. I bet the big box retailers wouldn't have done that.
