    Yes but I am guessing these aren't going to be bought by those on Fire Departments cutting holes in roofs.

    These plates that cover the bottom of the handles are probably a decent idea. This is the first iteration I've seen that covers the front of the muffler. The rear handles on saws are a weak point and the plate would probably prevent many from breaking. 1128 and 1122 series Stihls are commonly found with cracked rear handles. I have a pile of 1123 series Stihls here and every single one of them has rear handle damage. (came from a tree service)
