Another bargain

Recommended Posts

They are cheap chinese copies and they are not fit for purpose, watchdog or Rouge traders had some one do tests on them and there was several faults with them and deemed not fit for purpose on the UK, i know people who have bought the Ms360 modles and they think they have just got the deal of the century as they only paid £120 for a new Stihl chainsaw, then when they have used it for an hour or so and its stoped pumping oil to the chain realaty starts to hit home, and then they take it to a Stihl dealer to fix and he tells them it is not a Stihl its a shit chinese clone, they then realise they have been robbed and by this time the guy with the van they bought it of is now safely back across the Irish sea with his pockets bulging with cash, Oh dear,,,,,

Ive never used or seen one of these saws in action other than joining some pages on FB and they seem to have an almost cult following now. Reviews seem to really good. Their warranty on parts seems to be great as well. Every single genuine Stihl part will swap right over. The Chinese sure know how to reverse engineer thats for sure. With the patents expiring on a lot of Saws what they are doing is not even illegal anymore. A lot of guys seem to be swapping out the standard oiler with a Stihl HO one and a few other components as well. 

 

Many are using the G660 as a Milling saw and have a couple of years hard use on them. 

 

They are supposedly bringing out a G880 this month, I'll be watching that with interest. 

 

Not sure if its the same Chinese saw above though.
