    :dizzy:At your local STIHL dealer.

    They're much cheaper at the dealer than anything I've seen on ebay. Where these guys are purchasing them at full retail and then resaleing them online to people asking the same question. Service manuals are only about $8.00.

    Why don't people consult with the dealer anymore first.

    LOL, where from? Stihl is about the only idiots that are stingy about stuff like that. Everyone else has parts breakdowns online except them...

    :waving: THANKS. I don't know of anything being available online. Just visit a local STIHL dealer and purchase one. Again they are only $8.00 and if your a decent mechanic they'll save you much more time and money than their cost.

    I am not sure about the Stihl trimmers and hedge trimmers but I do know this for a fact : Stihl does provide an owner's manual with their chainsaws. A person can download a PDF copy on their website.

    However, service manuals and illistrated parts lists are not available for any Stihl chainsaws unless a person can obtain them from another source.

    I own two Stihl chainsaws and luckily I do have the service manuals and IPL for both saws.
