I have a new Stihl weed whacker power head that's made in China and I cannot determine any difference in it and the old USA one with them side by side. I bought it to install in a FS55R

The Chinese make a lot of chainsaws.  There's certainly nothing about an MS250 that would be beyond their capability.

The durability of our Chinese made trimmers is not what the US or German made ones were. I just hope the chainsaws don't follow suit.

I will get a pic tomorrow. We have the 250, 251 and 251C. 250 is the only one on sale for the fall $449. Carb version of the 261 is in country but on hold waiting for CSA approval. I do not like the M tronic 261. Way too many issues this year.
