    I own the ps30 6.5in folding hand saw and snapped the blade in cold weather. Several brands use the same blade but I can't find replacements other than Stihl at $25 per. I need 2 blades.
    Can anyone help me find a store that sells them? I did find one for $16 but they were out of stock.

    http://www.austinoutdoorpower.com/MFC_Links/Stihl Hand Tools Parts Breakdowns.pdf page 9 part number 0000 882 0910

    Very hard to find comparatively

    When that one breaks. Just buy a silky. Reviews state the stihl is weak and prone to breakage. Just like all their new crap lately. Stihl is getting greedy like American companies. They still have their good name from years of good chainsaws. Now they let themselves go. Although I would never buy any other chainsaw other than stihl. They are the lesser of all the evils. But still barely good enough.

    "weak and prone to breakage", or hard steel that stays sharp longer? It's a trade off either way you go.

    BTW, is there any warranty on blade breakage? I thought Stihl hand tools had a lifetime warranty.

    I think they have lifetime warranty on the tools. I am a new dealer, but they did tell me that... I haven't had a claim yet though..
