................... I just want to confirm with other MS361 owners (preferably recent owners) that this isn't a problem anymore, or if it is, what you did to fix it? Is it something that goes away after the saw is broken in? ..............................
So, if WDH is correct then that means it starts just like every other Stihl chainsaw built in the last 25 years or so? That sounds like an accurate description of the standard starting procedure for practically any two cycle engine. Is the 361 so different or are the complaints coming from people who don't know how to start a chainsaw?
..... My reason for going with Stihl vs. any others is because there is a dealer only 5 miles away and I have bought many products (lawn and garden type tools) from him in the past, and always have been happy with him. If there was a husky dealer close by that I liked, I would have gone with Husky. .....
I vote for the last option......
its real simple, BUT you've got to pay attention. Cold start - full choke - pull till you here the slightest pop (pay attention or you'll flood it) after the pop, move it up one notch and it will start in 1 or 3 more pulls. Warm start - place in run position and pull - should start in 1 to 2. If not, its not tuned right! Forget about the decomp until you get to know your saw - It muffles the ist pop and causes frequent customer flooding. You really don't need it anyways.
On the subject of the CSM, if the 361 is any thing like the 036, it should do fairly well in logs 20" and under, just make sure your chain is sharp!
