    I hope I don't get in trouble for linking to a non-sponsor, but this page has the specs for most of the older Stihls.

    the link you supplied is a great reference, however some of the specs are missing and some of the specs differ from the stihl owners manuals. Thanx

    That is the same page I always go to to check specs on the fly. It is pretty helpful but is missing some info.

    A few ounces? I'm reading over a pound. Heck the 85cc poulans are only a pound heavier than the 064. My 460 is only a pound heavier than some of my 60 cc saws.

    14.6 vs. 14.9 pds. ca. 78 vs 85 cc

    And you can put a 066 top end on the 064, or a less quality 066 BB......to get into the 90cc range

    P.S. my 60cc 036 is lighter than my 51cc 028S, and that super is 11.8 pds, what 60cc boat anchor are you running?

    P.P.S. I still like my old Homie Super XL it's a heavy but torquey 60cc beast with no AV, but will stump a 24" bar that the new revvers can't handle

    as of the 2010 stihl catalog the ms441 weight is 14.6 lbs same as the ms460, the ms441 c-q weight is 14.8 which is the weight of the extra chain brake. I have a ms441 and a 066 and the 441 is quicker on the throddle and is as fast as the 066 through wood 20" and smaller as i can tell. I dont have a ms460 so i can only compare to my 066.

    actual weights of 064 and 044-both saws were drained and blown-out pretty well.

    Did I read that my 038 magnums are 72.2cc saws?

    If that is right I am pretty happy.

    038AV,038 Mag,041.Couldn't make their minds up in the eightys

    Yea (boutselis) apparently so . Machines have improved in little ways so much though. All these old things we keep using wear the operator down that much faster. I have too many old saws myself from 50 years old to only 6 year old. Everytime I need the job CUT OUT fast, I instinctively reach for the 6 Y.O. MS660.I KNOW its going to be trouble free as its like new to me.
    Funny though that the 041 is 62cc (from recollection)Yet Ur 038 Mag can blow its doors off at a whopping 14% more cubes.The 038 AV is only 61 .Once again if my memory serves me right?
