Re: Case tractor Stihl dealer

Stihl has been losing friends here as well. We are in a rural small market area, there are three conscientious dealers doing reasonably well and now the rep is hinting at a fourth. One of the dealers told me he has been loyal to them and expects the same, if they want to pull this nonsense he will look elsewhere as well.
I sold Stihl but could not make any money on the cutoff saws. They were putting these units into every rental yard who were were blowing them out at 10 dollars over our cost. We refused to order but were told stock them or else so we put two on the floor. I made no effort to sell them, I was on commission.
Echo handles their own distribution in Canada.
