plastic handle has broke twice in two weeks
Been a Stihl user for 20 years in business, dealer talked me into buying 488 Shindaiwa at a discount. Cheap plastic handle can't hold up to the vibrations the saw makes when using it in the cold. Handle broke twice in two weeks and cost $364 to replace each time.
Questions & Answers
Looking for a first chainsaw now that we are landholders, seeking recommendations I think for Shindaiwas - what model would be best suited for private use, cutting primarily olive and eucalyptus to keep the home fires burning. 488 or something bigger or smaller?
Where can we buy the piston and ring for 488 shindaiwa chainsaw?
