    However the “smart” Stihl very secretely developed and through at the market the new MS 400.

    Yesterday I received the 2019 Catalog and it’s listed.

    Say goodbye to 362...

    PS: months ago i was informed about the new 400 and i messaged a member if he knew anything about it. He replied he never heard anything from his (very good I believe) sources...

    Think i have the displacement wrong. Given the 500i spec vs the 661 I'll guess the 400i will be closer to 55cc and just under 12lbs, between the 261 and 362 eliminating both models.

    I think Stihl is naming saws buy cubic in displacement rather that random ass numbers.

    4 Cubes would be 65cc, just saying...

    First I heard of the 400i was last night from someone that did some product testing on one. Sworn to secrecy and can't talk about it but got tired of waiting for an American 462 and ordered one from Canada.

    From what I have been told it doesn't sound like many guys here will be all that interested in a 400i.

    But the 500i is 5kw, and 5 cu.in is 81.94cc. Which nimber is random?? Haha, maybe it's both power and class? 64cc and 4kw?

    If the 261 and 362 are cut out then they may be very interested. Lol

    I just like product development instead of a stagnant lineup

    I couldn't agree more and I am sure we've all heard stories of 261 and 362 failures in certain applications. As I understand it the 400i is a more purpose built saw.

    362 is still listed on Stihl.de, I won't accept that anything is discontinued if it is still listed there.

    Listen all saws are listed at the moment

    But... Goodbye 362, 441, 461

    The new Stihl era prevails for 2019, just remember what I wrote after few months
