    That's a darned good looking saw. I see Stihl's move the decomp over towards the clutch side. In that last pic, the cylinder cover fastener almost looks like an ignition key whole. :D

    only one i have is a ups scale ,not acurate to oz readings ,it said 16 lbs ,im shipping this saw unfired /unfueled to mastermind today maybe if he has a scale we can ask him to weigh before liquids ,this wrap am sure weighs a pound or so over non wrap model ,it feels just like my 440 does ,am sure theres not more than a few oz difference

    this has a lot of similarities to the 361 ,the top key thing holds the plastic down kind of like on a 026 or 036 does

    Very nice saw.

    Regarding the embedding of pics I have the same problem. I use a computer all day long at work and still I can't figure it out. The instructions I tried to follow don't have the same images that come up when I try to actually do it.

    Thanks for starting a new thread.

    I'm looking forward to this build more than any I've done in quite a while. I'll post some things right away....weight, stock compression, etc.....

    Randy, you should have this done just in time to bring to the KY GTG! I'm sure the OP wouldn't mind:)

    The main thing I want to know when you get it back is how it compares all the way around to the XPDUB

    Extremely nice saw! Congrats, Randy will make it a beast, it'll be interesting to see how it performs compared to the Simonized 460 as I love my Simonized 460, it's a cutting machine.
