Stihl 084 years made ?
« Reply #73 on: October 23, 2013, 11:14:31 pm »
When I was selling the stihl 084 the other day. The buyer ask the year of the saw  :-\.  All I could remember was they were made from about 1986 to ??      I guessed to early 1990's when GUESSING AGAIN the 088 came out  :-[.

 Anyone know the build dates of the 084?

When did the stihl 088 start being sold too?


Thanks.

So was the 084 phased out before 1999 or end date around 1999?

The dates a chainsaw was made was not too much of an indication as to when they were finally sold or put into service. Due to their cost, and the need for such a big chainsaw, many 084's sat around the dealers for years before they finally went out the door? Take notice that it was 3 yrs - 4mos between the time they stopped making the 084 and initial production of the 088 but it may have been another 6 or 8 mos before the 088's started showing up on shelves at the dealers for they were made in Germany?

My Dolmar 6000 (now a 6800) is a 1997 model according to the serial number but I know that it may have not arrived at the dealer until the next year? Then it could have sat at that dealer on the shelf for a couple years? Then the guy traded it in on a unused red top Dolmar 6400 in 2010. That 6400 had sat on the shelf for several years for it had been 5 years since Dolmar even made a red top 6400?

I bought a new Dolmar 6421 March 2011. The dealer ordered it from the distributor just for me and I took it out of the sealed box. It had been made 7 months before. Farther more, it had been run at the factory. I never ran it before converting to a 7900 and it started normally like I had just used it the day before.
