Well we all had some miss-communication. It happens. What I was trying to get at was, our company will only purchase Husqvarna products that we can verify came out of or were manufactured in sweden(not saying all parts are made in sweden). Same goes for Stihl. If you can get Stihl's products that were manufactured out of germany, that is the way to go. Apparently both Stihl and Husqvarna have assembly and manufacturing plants in america.
