So, 8 months ago I bought a stihl blower. It is a BG 86 I think. The big new hand held model. Anyhow, after 2 weeks, the blower would barely run. Took it in, and they tuned it all the way as lean as it could go...and it still didnt run right. But, at least it ran. 1 month after that, the blower will barely run again. I take it in, they clean out the spark arrester screen with a blow torch. 2 weeks later, same problem, take it in again, they clean it again. 2 weeks later, yet again, except this time, they cut the screen off. I also have to leave it with them for a week because the off switch had stopped working. They replace the whole switch. A month later, the blower starts making an awful rattle and sounds really loud. I take a look, and the muffler fell off. I take apart the case to get a closer look. One of the 2 bolts holding on the muffler had broken off clean inside the head. I take it in, a week later, I get it back and they put in a helicoil. 3 weeks later, the bolt installed in the helicoil wiggles out and rounds out/strips the helicoil out and I take it in again. They helicoil it AGAIN, 1 month later (yesterday) it falls out the third time. I take it in and now they say it will be a week and a half for them to order a brand new cylinder head! What gives??!?! This blower is less than 8 months old. Im thinking of calling Stihl corporate and making them buy me a brand new one because mine is a lemon! Ive had 3 BG 55's, the residential entry level model and they never gave me this level of problems...So much for commercial and new and improved. Anyone else had these kind of problems?
