    In light of the usual and constant Stihl bashing, I got to wondering...
    Could it be that we hear so much about Stihl problems because many of us use Stihl?

    Stihl has a huge market share, and it stands to reason that we're going to hear more about their problems and stories about dealers shops that are full of units in for repair.

    I think it would be useful info if we all knew what percentage of us Stihl and other brands.

    I use Stihl, but the %'s add up to over 100%, something must be wrong...

    You can select more than one option, so if you have a Redmax trimmer and a Stihl blower you vote accordingly.
