It is heavier, and that is exactly what a 60cc saw doesn't need..... ::)

We just got a MS362 demo saw. We did have a MS361. The first time I ran it there was no pulling power. Roger said the crome on the rings would need to seat. I ran it again and it worked much better. The MS361 was realy starting to build more compression, dad is 79 and he could no longer start it with out the compression release. I assume the MS362 will also go  through a break in period. Anyone else see this?

My new 361 took about 5 tanks of gas to seat the rings and break in for more power. I would expect the 362 to be the same.
