    Hello guys, I am usually checking the landscaping and mowing forums. My name is Rob and I have been working in the green industry for 14 years. 13 of them were under the table because of college and my electrical apprenticeship. Well I got laid off a year later after becoming a journeymen. However with my old company I learned how to climb Trolly and regional lines to work on the catenary. Just another skill to add to the landscaping company. First question. How does one become certified? Second....

    In 01 I had a small echo for tiny limbs then bought a bigger one 35cc echo for slightly bigger limbs but in the northeast with all those storms my phone has been ringing once or twice a week for big jobs. (very nice money after almost loosing my house being laid off) I couldn't affor a professional saw so I bought a Stihl ms-271 and it has a lot more cutting speed and power then the echo even with small stuff. My question is why dont stihls have a pump primer? And third........

    What engine does Stihl use?

    Thank you. I guess it was dumb to ask when I could search.
