I am mad and sad all at the same time. But it is what it is.

661 can be had with heated handles and in Arctic. Only thing is you can not get them in the states. Seems a little backwards to me.

After watching this. Sure makes the old heated from muffler heated handles that were adjustable front and rear look so simple in design.

I hope it works good and last for a good long time. Heating the handles with the exhaust does sound simple.

Have finally used this thing to cut some timber. Sure does a good job. Just that little bit of added comfort goes along way as the day goes on. Wish I would have done this years ago.

Yep ;)  Dont know whatcha missing till you tried it.

I had a couple little saws with heated handles. 346 490 5000 and it was the cats meow on a cold snowy day out helping folks cut firewood.

Rear handles dont heat up though do they on these new ones? I dont remember the 346 doing so. But the old 490 5000 did.
