WRONG!!!! McCoulloch is now a Chinese firm. They do not have a parts warehouse, so they contracted with MTD to provide the parts in the states. The parts for the new ones are readily available through MTD, who bought Ryobi, but Ryobi did not buy out McCoulloch. Are we totally confused yet? Getting parts for the older mAC's is another story, I am told by my MTD distributor that the parts left from when McCoulloch was in bussiness are in the warehouse, but the supply is limited. This should get everyone going in here, but I got the info during an MTD update school this spring.
