    Dood leaves a nice Dutchman which just kills me but the saw sounds strong.

    His caption says otherwise of course.
    I’m guessing this is stock as well.

    Ryan, are you guys running the 362 Ver II at work? If so, what do you/they think of them?

    I've obviously never put any serious time on one, but I definately wouldn't overlook one for my firewood cutting just to put some time on it.

    I wouldn't keep it though, im honestly trying to get to the point it's strictly stihl only because of my dealer.

    Good dealers are hard to find these days. I can understand that.

    I ported my first 036 back around 2007 -8 , it gave the most performance increase I ever got from a Stihl saw without doing extensive machine work on the P&C. I almost gave up toting my 044`s around after that but the 044 held an edge I could not fully give up.

    Is there any difference power wise in the 361 and 036? I never see 361s for sale around here mostly 362s. Maybe a reason for that.

    In terms of power from what I've noticed...

    1) 361
    2) 036
    3) 362

    But I don't have a lot of time running a 362

    I have some ported 361s and 362s...hard to say which one makes more power.

    That bar is sexy...

    Where would a fellow be able to get his hands on one? Asking for a friend.

    I have an 036 very dependable saw but I wouldn’t want any less power. Gets very little use thanks to my huskil 346. Never run a 361.

    They are Tsumura bars. Probably only thru an Echo dealer.

    A ported 361 is tits, get porkchop to port one for you.

    They feel smaller than they are, you might not run your 346 as much if had a good ported 361 with an 18-20" bar.

    Only problem is if echo puts their name on it the price doubles. The echo branded Oregon bars are way higher than the Oregon and the echo name lasts about 5 min on the black bars.
