    I tried to look at one of their walkbehinds here in central Texas and none of the dealers here seemed to care enough to help me...also went to gie show last year and they couldn't provide the demo at the show either,so I gave up....
    When I called their equipment'husky' they gave me a puzzled look....I had to explain that I used to be a fan of their enduro motorcycles....they were lost....

    I'm glad I bought my trimmer before they went box store. My 8 year old residential trimmer still starts first pull to this day. I would estimate it has close to 2000 hours on it.

    So does that mean that because Stihl went box store they will go to pieces as well?

    When did Stihl go box? Which chain are they available in?

    I've seen them in Big R stores around here. But, Big R also has a service department, and it think that is why the can do it.


    I used to have a husky 175 enduro bike when growing up. That thing was awesome.

    Husqvarna still make motorcycles I'm pretty sure. But if I we're to ever get another bike, it would probably be a KTM.

    If a dealer doesn't have the ability to service on site, then they don't get to be a dealer.
