No information there but 65cc might be possible as the TS400 was that size.

I guess the TS400 65cc example doesn't mean anything as the TS500i was only 72 cc.
The MS500i is 80cc.

It could quite possibly turn out as a fuel injected "i", or a variety of options. Rumor mill from the same source says new 880 or 881.

stihlguy just told me this =   I saw a prototype of this unit while at training at STIHL. It was used for straight gas seizure training and at that time it had a ceramic coated, magnesium piston. There wasn't any real benefit to the ceramic coating apparently, so now it's solely magnesium.
It wasn't clear if it would replace or stand along side the 362, but it does utilize many of the 362 components.

Stihl 400 881 prices.  This what you seeing Ed?

Man if those specs hold true and she rips. That 400 going to be a winner.

12.8lbs PHO  66.8cc  5.4bhp seems like a winner. What I thought of was the ole husky 266 66.7cc almost 12oz more PHO.

Guy I know from racing days. He is in the FB chainsaw repair group in the thread. = The one I tested had a 25 on it. Didn't have any issues falling medium sized oak and hickory. I'm calling it the 362 Super as it shares majority of the parts. It does spool quicker and recover revs faster than a 362.

Some info from a guy from Norway running the 400 881. 70" plus bar on 881 === I have used the 400 and it is a stonking saw. Really aggressive and pretty light. I thought it was more of a replacement to the 362. A little bit heavier but considerably more poke.
Also used the 500i and the 881. The 500 has been out a while in Norway, seems a good saw but I wonder how long it would last in a logging scenario.
The 881 we used for a bit of milling. Seems to be a good saw but hard to tell what it would be like. We had a 70+Ē bar on it and a Panther chainsaw mill. It was pretty heavy.

I just use the website to store info from the chainsaw repair group FB I created.
Everything went social media and forums are just dead anymore IMO.

I wonder if any truth to this? So cool if no smearing. Copy paste =

(((((The Mag piston isnít for weight reduction as much as itís for warranty issues. That info is coming form a licensed Stihl dealer and tech who attended the dealership meetings at Stihl USA.

It seems that Mag wonít stick to Nikasil like aluminum will. So any overheating/straight gas/other user issues result in a scored piston with no meaningful cylinder damage at all. Another piston can be popped in and the saw can be run again.

Again, thatís info I got from a very reputable source.)))))
