I've got a 3-yr old Craftsman 18" chain saw that needs maintenance.
It's slow to start and has trouble staying running, so it probably needs
filters and spark plug. Also the pull cord is sticking an awful lot.
I know I should probably do these things myself, but i'm pretty busy
lately. I don't know of any of the lawn more repair places nearby.
Anyone have any experience going back to Sears for this kind of tune-up?
Are they just extortionate? How much should I figure on paying for this
kind of tune-up?
Sears loves to sell you stuff and then changes the parts every year or so.
When you take yours in for repair, they don't have parts to fit it and want
to seel you a new unit. They also build or let out contracts to have built
the opposite way of everyone else (i.e. If B/D uses a male plug, Sears will
use a female. they can drive you nuts getting anything fixed,especially if
you do it yourself.) I only buy my hand tools there, at least I get a
replacement everytime I break one!
