    I know, but as long as there are auto unions, then they are still owned by the gov't (or maybe it's the other way around:rolleyes:)

    OK, The answer will shock all of you know it alls.

    YES, The old homeowner POS Stihl FS36 and FS44 were made by ryobi. The engines were anyways, the rest was made by Ryan. This model was produced in the late 80's early 90's.

    I don't think so, all the ryobi I have seeing are the same Homelite trimmers with a different color. but the experts here will know exactly the right answer.

    You've got it all wrong.

    John Deere owns Stihl.
