Personally, I use all Stihl 2 cycle products and I don't have any plans of changing. What I am wondering is; for all of you who say to stay away from JD 2 cycle and that they won't last, do you speak from experience or bias decision? Has anyone really put JD 2 cycle equipment to test in this kind of environment? I am curious to know about true experience with JD 2 cycle equipment since it would make Green Fleet more of a reality if they are good quality. I'm not sure if they are manufacturing their own equipment or having it done to their specs, but the clips that I have seen of their manufacture/testing process seems to be stringent.
