    I got a 088 and was wondering how old the saw was. When did they start making the 088 and when did they switch to MS880?
    The saw has a plastic flywheel if it helps determine the year.

    Is there any difference between the 088 and the 880?

    The 088 was introduced in 1996(aprox)Name change was in 2003. Fuel and oil caps changed to the flip top. I think they updated the module to one with a limiter. The 088 and MS880 both had the polymer fins on the flywheel.
