Went back and looked over the drawings and verbiage and the description seems really broad in terms of the injection.  Says it could be low psi or  high BAR injection pressure.  Seems like it could apply to a broad range of already existing management systems.    What's unique here or am I missing something?

from what i seem to get out of it is... its different because its injected directly into the combustion chamber.  the FI (or carb) is used primarily for starting only.

I love the idea of all this tech making its way into saws but the reality of it all is that it is going to complicate diagnoses and add a lot of cost to repairing saws. pushing us eventually more and more towards the throw away society

agree.  those who work on more than one brand will have to get brand specific software/hardware?  until, or if, the manufacturers agree on a common connector for diagnostics.

this kind of thing eradicated some generations long auto service stations in my area.  maybe this would help dealers buisness by folks who have out of warranty equipment?  what husq is doing, by not letting the consumer update software is to support its dealers.  can respect that, but leaves everyone else hanging.

consumers too?  imo, at first the consumer will be ok, when the warranty is still in effect.  then SOL, unless they buy a "code reader", software/hardware connector. 

could be the writing is already on the wall.

not every issue can be diagnosed with software.  but if it's an fuel issue, and you cannot read future o2 sensors or fault codes, it would make diagnosis more difficult.

i doubt the manufactures are going to agree on a single platform or codes. look at the automotive world. up until 1995 everybody did their own thing and only after the government mandated that everybody use the same codes and connector did that happen. OBDII was a great idea and works ok for accessing general information on all the different manufactures cars but even now they still have OBDII generic and OBDII manufacturer specific codes. even though the government mandated they all use the same codes dont even think about working on a VW unless you have the VW software. i use a aftermarket scanner for cars that was $4000 new 6 years ago. $1000 every couple years for updates and as we speak i am looking at updating to a completely new scanner because mine is too slow to comunicate with some of the newer cars out there. $5000- $10000 for the latest and greatest scanner out there right now.

Transfer all that to a chainsaw and i dont think the money is there for the aftermarket to build a scanner or the government to mandate they all use the same operating system so that if you had the stihl software you could plug it in to a husky.

That's interesting. That certification number appears on the EPA website but I can't find any models on Husky website with those displacement or HP specs.

Sounds pretty sweet. Have to imagine these saws will rip and have some great torque across the power band.

.......the 365 is 65.1 cc

....but the motor which may be 'new', is listed as being quite a bit stronger (+ 1.24 HP) than the 365?
