Read on it alot. Seems the same weight as the other 2 that gained weight. I want lighter. Not worried about big cuts.

I'm over on the 'other' board digging for the CS355T PHO weight.   I can tell you that the Echo 'felt' quite a bit lighter than the 540XPT when I handled both at the dealer a few days ago. 

They still have a new 338XPT on the shelf.  Would you like me to inquire?

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Kevin do you have a shot of a 338XPT and/or 335XPT powerhead on a scale?

I checked the weight thread on AS too.  Most of the pics are gone.....

I've read of about 3 540's so far not running right.

Think this might shed some light on the problems.

Quote from: Husabud
Turns out there was a whole run, day or week, that is running poorly and been recalled.
Something to do with the carb and or lines to it.
The local dealer has fifteen he cannot sell because they are part of that same run. Maybe you got a bum too.

Anyone have any more news on the recall mentioned above? I was going to buy one from Spike60 but decided to go for a 562 as my entry into AT saws. I'll buy the T540 at a later date as soon as I get more info on what the recall is and what the fix is.
