Stihl Dealer Visit 2015

Stihl and Viking

Irene’s initial thoughts from the trip; “throughout my visit the emphasis was on ‘quality’ which was very evident.”   Although due to Stihl being so forward with their technology we were unable to use the camera, so have no images of their plants to show (sorry!)
