    Yes... but it needs to come that way factory. Heck my 300$ weedeater has a better filter seal... 661 was around 1200$ last I checked.

    Things stihl have trouble with:
    Cost
    Filtration
    Cost
    Dealers willing to do rebuilds and repairs rather than just selling a new saw.

    I can't afford to buy new, I've never had a brand new powerhead of my own. One day! I actually like stihls plenty, great machines. Everything has its problem areas regardless of brand. Look at dolmar/makita. Outstanding saws, small dealer network.

    When I owned a dolkita I ordered parts thru Nate. There used to be a dealer in Spencertown, NY which is pretty close. Idk if they still handle them though. Last I was in there they didnt have any saws on the shelves.

    I think sometimes people just say that, to say it, because they are to lazy to do a web search.

    A search of dolmar website, shows a full service dealer in providence rhode island.

    EASTERN TOOL CO
    421 Hartford Ave
    Providence RI 02909
    (401) 621-9200

    Few more dealers just over the border in MASS. A stones throw away.

    I live in BFE eastern CO (have to drive 15 miles for a loaf of bread or gallon of milk) yet there are two dolmar dealers less then 45 miles from my house.

    You'd never know by driving by them, no sign out front etc, but they have saws and a dolmar display inside. Ones in a auto parts store, other is a guy who sells mowers and such out of a small shop, few blocks off main street in a tiny little town of a few hundred people. There's a 3rd dealer 60 miles away from me.

    Search dolmar dealers, by your zip code, you will find them...

    That might be true in some instances, but some of them in my area that are listed no longer exist.

    LOL. Your all over me lately.
    No gas saws there.
    Don't really want to have to drive an hour for parts. I got 2 Stihl dealers within 5 miles of me.
    Thanks for doing the research though.

    Sorry, I didn't mean anything by it. Their website shows they sell saws. Idk?

    5 miles here won't even get you to my neighbors place, let alone to a stihl dealer.

    Lmao....
