STIHL dealers are probably prohibited from selling non-US STIHL merchandise. But there are a number of guys on this site that do some online selling.One would think that at least one Stihl dealer here would have at least one Stihl dealer contact there...
@DND 9000 is over in Germany. Wonder if he could help us out?Found these in response to another thread. Do not appear to be available in USA. Anyone familiar with or have experience with them? Might need a member-friend in EU to obtain?

You all give me your money and I'll go set up 'round the corner. HahaIt's going to happen if we keep up the conversation.
Someone will come along.
Seems screwed in the head a huge multi national company would play games like this north America ain't exactly a small market. Just doesn't add up especially in today's world where anyone can order what ever they like from anywhere I can't understand why there is even different markets for small stuff like that and it's not like there getting asked for husky parts. Its there own dam products.
Rant over sorry guys
Yeah good explanation. So could the main distribution whatever be contacted and asked I wonder.I will assume that some number cruncher in Germany decided that there just wasn't enough of a market in the US. Why would he/she think that? God only knows. All they need to do is ship a gross of each to a Central Stihl supply in the states and sell them on-line... don't even need to involve dealers. That would keep the price reasonable.
