Hello All,

I have an opportunity to purchase a full wrap handle that the seller says is from an MS362, at a price I am willing to pay. Does anyone know if handles are interchangeable between MS362 and MS361? Perhaps more helpful, is it relatively easy to remove my existing handle? I should probably just take my saw (an MS361) with me and make sure the MS362 handle fits, just in case the seller is not correct about what saw it came from.

Removal is easy if you have the correct Torx wrench - this drawing is from MS361 spare parts manual showing the handle installation.

The full wrap handle bar for MS 362 part # 1140 790 3700 is only used on MS 362 R and MS 362 C-M R. The handle for the MS 361 part # 1135 791 1700 specifically states in IPL that full wrap handle is not compatible.
