A trip to Lowe's and now I have this thing

It's a g3800 style saw, not strato charged but the cylinder is a quad closed transfer with removable covers like on the 543xp, gz4500, and 4000 but the intake is just a single port with an impulse hole.

I had no idea they were selling those! It's basically an Earthquake/G3800 clone, but with that transfer design it's far better. Do you know what the displacement actually is? I assume it's a cat muffler?

That can be a fast little saw. Should be easy to port with those removable covers giving access to the transfers - put some card stock in the cylinder to prevent damage on the far side cylinder wall and use a small flat file.

Pretty amazing: this is now the best 40cc saw on the market, and for $150!

The 46cc craftsman unfortunately looks just like a normal china 5200 on the parts diagram, no transfer covers.
