    What the heck is the difference in these two saws, MS360 and MS361?

    Everything. The 361 is completely redesigned to replace the MS 360. Both good saws, though!

    totally differant saws. The MS 360 is based off of the older 036 design with rubber vibration dampning, torquey powerband and over durablitily.


    The newer 361 replaced the Ms 360 and is a total redesign. It has spring mounted vibration dampners, a better air filtration system and a higher powerband 4 port engine.

    Most guys like the 361 better

    I and a few others like the 036/360 for the torquey powerband and overall one of the best stihl saws ever made. Some say the same about the 361 also.

    The 361 is supposed to much better on fuel as well.
