    A dealer told me the other day that Stihl is using ryobi parts now...I find it hard to believe, I use nothing but Stihl and he is an Echo dealer that wants me to switch....with what he said, I took it with a grain of salt...any of you guys hear anything about this???

    Not anymore that I know of.
    They did use a Ryobi engine in the fs-36 and fs44, they have not made these units in a few years.
    That is the only thing they used from Ryobi that I know of.
    Also those models were low end homeowner units.
