    Yeah, maybe everybody on this board knows that Stihl is German owned, but I doubt a sliver of people in the world actually know that. Heck, a lot of chainsaw owners have probably never heard of Stihl.

    And your point is taken. I just thought you were trying to distinguish Dolmar as the better of the two because it was a subsidiary of Mercedes Benz and engineered in Germany.

    I didn't realize Mercedes Benz was owned by Makita of Japan. You learn something new everyday. ;)

    Makita bought Dolmar back in 1991 and still owns them. That's why the blue Makita's you see being rented in Home Depot are the exact same as Dolmar models painted red.
