    My point was with the filtration on the 441 there’s no need for it.

    Keeping the chain sharp is the best way to keep a filter clean on any saw.

    Depends more on the type of wood you are cutting IMO, some is just worse then others.

    I think it is a little bit of each, a sharp chain certainly helps, but dead wood will always be dustier than live wood, and the type of wood also enters into the mix.

    Is the newest saws the only version 3 M-tronic saws?
    Trying to get a little better educated on this M-tronic stuff. I grabbed a NIB rear handle ms201 off Ebay that I thought was a carbed model. When I got it, I was disappointed to find it was a M-tron. After running it for several tank, That disappointment left and I really like this little saw!

    Question for you 661 gurus.
    My 661r arctic Canadian model has the 4701a coil. Is it good to go or can/should I upgrade the electronics?

    If it runs good, leave it, if it doesn't, change it. I have an early M Tron 362 that runs just fine.

    Your saw is manufactured 07.2013 and that means you don`t have the m-tronic v.3.

    If your saw is running good, don`t change it. Your control unit marked with 4701 A is a previous version (part no. 1144 400 4720).
