    Was looking at these the other day and noticed the the advertised weight for the power head is 19.84 lbs is this a misprint..I hope.
    The Blue G444 and the G388 come in at 17.63lbs .

    Regards

    Those are the bare power head specs from various sources that I see but my 365 clone is barely hits 19 lbs with a 24 inch bar.

    Great thanks for your info I may end up buying one, orange or blue but the weights for the power heads just seem to be on the heavy side

    That's definitely a purple blue. The blue one is a little lighter than the orange version, does yours run out good, it looks to be brand new to me ?

    Hmmm...Looking at them this morning again. I see that the ones you own are the blue Stihl versions I still not able to decide between the orange G372xp , or the blue G444.
    Well at least I have something to think about today . Appreciate your input.

    Regards

    Yes I'm looking at them this evening, leaning towards the G372xp the price is most attractive.

    Meant to ask ...do you run yours at the recommended 25-1 ratio, or a different ratio?

    Any thoughts on what would happen if you ran these saws at a 40-1 ratio

    Just the way that everything, always, turns into an oil thread.

    All unmodified small 2 stroke engines built since 1990 will be just fine with 40-1, provided you're using the best oil from either Stihl or Husky.

    Dang it, there I go. It is contagious.

    I agree.. The last thing I want is another oil thread. I looking at buying one of them, and the recommended ratio was 25-1 which seemed strange. My intent is to use 40-1 and I'm was wondering if there is something different with main and rod bearing clearances that I'm not aware of on these Chinese saws.

    Now this is nice to know, Thankyou. I was leery of making a purchase if a 25-1 ratio is required. I have maybe only 15 saws. Never counted them, but they all runout really nice. I also like the
    40-1 ratios.

    Regards

    If you build a kit or buy a complete saw
    I recommend changing the fuel and pulse
    Line's for quality line's echo 6mm or stihl etc.
    My china line's failed after a few weeks
    I also trimmed most of the "g" off the circlips
    Or used oem circlips
    Some chain brakes are iffy
    That's it the the only issue's I've had. 20180623_105606.jpg here's 40/1 ra on a huztl cylinder kit.
    Dripping with oil.
