    Somethings not right, I know of 4 Stihl dealers around me, 1 is my main dealer, the 2nd I go to from time to time for miscellaneous stuff. The 3rd and 4th I've never dealt with when buying equipment, but my point being EVERY Stihl dealer I've been to has the same DSRP for equipment as the next.

    Like I said somethings not right, that dealer sounds shady to me.

    I don't mean to make excuses for her, but I think she was in a hurry and was disregarding my detailed description of what I wanted (she didn't pay attention to the important part: 135 degree.)

    Concerning the DSRP. If you check the stihl web site, you will see that the prices for the exact same products vary from dealer to dealer, typically changing by region (not usually within city). I put in a number of different cities in different states, and then looked at particular products and there was in fact much variation from one area to the next when it came to price.
