Why steal Stihl?

Written by  Milking It

If someone turns up on your farm, selling Stihl 461 chainsaws, please shout out. That’s the message from NZ Young Farmers.

In a social media posting it says “a large number” oh chainsaws and other valuable gear have been stolen from NZYF container in Christchurch.

NZYF runs the FMG Young Farmer of the Year competition, which includes competitions around the farm, where they use Stihl chainsaws.
