    So bought a Stihl FS-38, thinking Stihl is a USA/German company.
    Apparently it is not.
    This weed eater is made in China.
    So screw it took it back and bought a hyper tough at Wally world for 68 bucks.

    All my equipment is STHIL. Quality product

    FS-38 is the only one made in China.

    Echo is made in Japan, not China, quite good.

    I don't get it, you want a non-China weedeater so you bought a China weedeater?
