Any of the new version jonsered saws have heated handles?  Like the 2253 2260 2266 2272 etc?

2172w appears to offer that feature, but none of the other models do in the US market.  2260 with heated handles, or 560xpg if they'd bring it over here, would be great; better still if they'd make the 560xpg all orange. 

I wonder what % of sales are heated handle models.  Maybe 2-4%?  Less?  It is a shame, the marginal increase in cost sure is small compared to the enjoyment they offer on wet, cold days.  It might be a hard sell on a $300 saw, but if you're already looking at $500-1,000, what's another $20-30?

Heated handles are a fraction of a percent of total sales.
Our shop is Western NY, where it's cold as hell 5 months of the year and
I've only sold 2 heated handle saws ever.

There's no real market demand for them to invest money to expand to more saws.

Of all my chainsaws, one has heated handles. I found this out after I bought the saw used. The Dolmar 6800iH heats the handles up perfectly.

Heated versions are made of all those (except the 2166?), but what is stocked in the different markets and areas will vary.

I believe Spike60 is stocking most of the heated models, except the 560xpg of course..... ;)

If he had the 560xpg, I'd order one.   Shame.

My Jonsered heated handle saws includes two 2153's, 2156 and a 2171.
After getting the first headed handle saw I'll always use one for winter cutting.

In the US, the closest options are the 562xpg and the 2260WH...
