The predecessor to the 6400 Dolmar pretty much did exactly that. The Dolmar "i" models all had a Tillotson carbs with a squirter right off the carb pump when you turned the carb choke lever on. None of these had an actual choke.

Saws like the 6000i, 6800i, 111i, & 115i would all do this. In cold weather these saws will start and continue to run with the choke lever on. Turn the choke off as the saws have run a few seconds.

These saws are no longer in production.

Yup I have a 120Si like that, easiest starting saw ever built.

Maybe find one of those carbs Adam and see if you can put it on the 6400?

The 120Si and 6800Si were pretty much identical except the brake on the 6800 would trip off inertia. (was a EPA thing?)

That was the end of the Sachs era as the 6400 and 5100 were initially designed by Solo long after Dolmar was bought by Makita.
