Woefull warranty

I bought one of these 12 months ago , was fine until the handgun started leaking apparently an internal valve was fixed under warranty over a 6 week period. Worked fine again used a couple of times then started leaking again same spot . Took back to the dealer today said they will replace it but won't be until July 4 months away . Needless to say I will never buy another stihl product. Show details

Used 6 times in 2 years - now it’s dead

Had a Karcher previously - it died the week after warranty expired.
I used this 6 times over 2 years. It was okay - not brilliant but okay.
I tried to use it today. Nothing. Just a dribble of water for a while but nothing more.
Waste of $500+.
Buy another brand - not Stihl (and certainly not Karcher!). Do any of them last more than a year or two? Show details

Good until it wasn't

The stihl 120 stopped working before 10 months, with only minimal use.
Dealer looked for any way they could to get out of a warranty claim. Very poor after sales service. Show details

This thing is worse than the contents of my cats litter tray

My Stihl is actually a 130 model, but it is a totally useless machine, poor build quality.
I used it five times in 2 years, It failed on three ocassions so I actually only used it twice.
One week out of warranty and Stihl didn't want to know me. It failed again a few months ago and another fee to repair it, $241 this time.
These things must be built in China to an extremely low qualiy level.
DO NOT buy one Show details

Broken twice between 12 usages

Has to be a design flaw on the wand.
Purchased the product believing in the brand name and it’s reliability. How this is being promoted as a commercial product is beyond me. Show details

Not as good as it should be for the money

I bought this as I wa sure it would be better than a cheaper one from Bunnings. Was great initially but have had a few problems in the first year or so and have had to send it back for repair which have taken forever!! 2 month on one repair and 3 months on another (due to covid). I make sure that I start it and end how you are meant to but it has overall been a poor purchase I would say. Expected more for the $$ Show details

Delivery is OK but motor tries to start while trigger is in off position,this could cause electrical burn-out.
This machine is not old or ill treated.

I have just recommenced washing my roof and I noticed no pressure. When I went down to check on the RE120 unit, I noticed water coming out from under it. There were no leaks from the hose / unit and unit / high pressure hose connection. I cannot open up the unit to check as there are star type screws.

I was wondering what the issue could be?

At the bottom of the machine is the water pump, a small O ring has probably popped out. This happened to mine. Stihl does sell the parts, turn machine upside down to disassemble otherwise oil will go every where.
