Handled the 540XPT at the dealership today.  Just looked it over and 'one handed' it around a bit.  Also checked out a 338XPT and an Echo CS355T at the same dealership.  Both the Echo and the 338XPT were noticeably lighter and more compact. 

I haven't handled a 200T is about six months...........so my 'calibrated arm' wasn't able to really judge where the Stihl fits along with these other tophandles.  From (dim) memory I'd say the Stihl feels a tad lighter than the 540XPT (and about as 'bulky'), but heavier than the Echo and the 338XPT.

Would like to run all these tophandles side by side in the same wood............with fresh loops of Stihl 63PS on 'em.   That's all academic for me however.  I'm not a pro, and likely would never buy a new tophandle.  My old Poulan S25 saws do what I need a tophandle to do for me.  I may still be getting that 335XPT California from my buddy if I feel the need for a more modern tophandle saw.

Thank you Kevin.   Please send it to me.  I'll probably end up with that 335XPT-C.

Many Thanks to Randy aka Mastermind for getting me the PHO weights (540XPT).




Brad just posted this MS201T PHO weight picture in another thread.  Looks like they're pretty close.
