    What are you Jonsered dealers doing now that the brand is going out? Will you be looking for another brand? If so what are you thinking? We are a small Jonsered & DOLMAR dealer. Thanks , Doug

    I do like Echo and might try them. I tried them a few years ago and they said no . There largest dealer in my area is a John Deere dealer about 9 miles from me.

    Good product, but as I understand it very little dealer support. I have had a number, from a little 631 top handle up through the 103 cc 603.

    I was looking for a Solo IPL on Solousa and they are no longer there so that might be a clue that they are leaving as far as saws are concerned. I think another company has bought the side business in Europe

    I'm not a dealer either (obviously, Lol), but could you get RedMax? I know they're part of Husqvarna, but Jonsered is/was as well.

    There are two Stihl dealers in the tiny town of Appomattox, VA and they are literally across the road from each other.

    After a few years, Husky will kill off RedMax, I maybe wrong. But think about how many well known brands the main company has purchased and how many are still around.
