PING: David F. Eisan re: no response from General after several tries

David -
Over the course of the last 4 weeks, I've sent several emails to Christian St-Cyr at General asking for tune up specs for the 350. I initially asked for specs and some parts prices. He responded with price info, but wanted to know why I wanted the tune up spec's.... What difference does that make? Anyway, I told him I wanted to check out the saw and never heard a peep back, other than the mail couldn't be delivered to snipped-for-privacy@general.ca. I then sent emails as you suggested to snipped-for-privacy@general.ca, with a cc to snipped-for-privacy@aol.com, and snipped-for-privacy@general.ca .
You've explained that they're busy and all that, but it has been a month and I've heard nary a peep since I first got a resonse from Christian St-Cyr.
These emails for the most part, have bounced back (at least the ones to snipped-for-privacy@general.ca, the others haven't) But my last two inquiries over the last 7 10 days haven't bounced or gotten a respose.
So, I've given up in trying to get an email response from General, and that's a real disappointment - I am *so* happy with the cab saw...
I guess I'll break down and call them, but why the heck have a website and email contact info if you're going to blow people off? I have been nothing less than polite, prompt and within reason in all of my messages and am a bit dismayed...
If you could pass word along to them through whatever contacts you have...
Thanks!

John,
Forward me the emails you sent General and I will forward them to someone who will respond. I am friends with the Ontario sales rep, I just sent this one to his personal email address. Send me the rest and I will forward them as well.
Thanks,
David.
Every neighbourhood has one, in mine, I'm him.

John,
I forwarded your emails to Peter Kennedy who is a friend of mine and the Ontario sales rep for General. I spoke with him today and I know your emails will be read by Gilles Gurette (sp) the owner and president of General. General does not have an "official" tune up procedure for the 350.
As I requested, please forward me your emails, both answered and unanswered and I will see that they get to where they need to go.
Thanks,
David.

John,
4-5 years ago I bought a 35 year old 12" General TS at a school auction. I contacted General and they told me the exact year from the serial # and sent me a free manual. Pretty good customer service in my view.
Perhaps the difference was a phone call rather than email, although I agree with you that if they have internet contact info it should be promptly responded to.
Cheers,
