    Good Morning,

    Once again title says it all.

    No info on 400. $90.00 more than 362

    OH, the HT 133 is gone and the HT 131 is back.

    My bet is the 500i doesn't need the competition.

    Where are you seeing this?

    The Stihl USA website still has the 461 listed and no mention of the 400?

    A link to a page or picture of a paper would be an awesome place to start a conversation.

    I would find it bizarre to see a 400 listed prior to the 462...

    A while back this summer I contacted Arrow Ace Hardware as they still had the 131 listed for sale on their website. I told them I didn’t like the updates on the 133 and would love to find a 131.
    They spent a bunch of time tracking it down as it still showed in the system. When he was done he said he called the distributor and he said the computer was wrong and the distributor then told him to tell me if I could wait the 131 would be back. I think this was back in July or August.

    Thank you for posting that. What I see from that is the 461 is still listed and is not marked WSL...

    A little surprised that the 241CM is WSL but does confirm what was said earlier. I wonder if this is a distributor choice...

    Any Specs. on the Ms400?

    I also see a 462 light and 661 light, wonder if they are just being offered with a light bar or if there is a difference in the power head weight.

    I think the Light is just referring to the bar, that is is price by size of bar so that just make sense to me.

    I see the 500i listed, but not the MS400CM:
    https://www.stihl.de/STIHL-Produkte/Motors%C3%A4gen-und-Kettens%C3%A4gen/S%C3%A4gen-f%C3%BCr-die-Forstwirtschaft/287735-1582/MS-500i.aspx (User manual available for download in German only)

    79.2 cc, 6.2 kg PHO

    "The world's first power saw with electronically controlled injection is here. With the MS 500i, STIHL heralds a new era in chainsaw technology. The revolutionary injection technology STIHL Injection stands for rapid acceleration, extremely high performance and consistently minimized weight. The chain accelerates in incredible 0.25 seconds from 0 km / h to 100 km / h. The power-to-weight ratio of the STIHL MS 500i is unique on the market at 1.24 kg / kW. The innovative engine with pressure and temperature sensors always optimally doses the fuel. Whether cold or warm start and regardless of altitude or ambient temperature. The absence of a starting position and the easily accessible Purger ensure the easiest starting under all operating conditions. The perfectly balanced STIHL MS 500i provides rapid work progress in professional harvesting and processing. Thanks to its lightweight construction concept and dynamic pivoting behavior, this ideally manageable machine not only impresses when cutting and cutting, but also when unlatching. HD2 filters, captive nut on the sprocket cover, volume-adjustable oil pump, toolless tank closures and lateral chain tension complete the top features. The MS 500i will be available from spring next year."
