Not true IMO. The new 261 441 461 661 are pro saws.

390 290 310 250 consumer

Maybe back when they were 0 number first.  Like 021 025 029 039 Hmmmmmm 031  what was it considered? Pretty dang good built saw. 034 036 044 046 066 084  I think I see the pattern he was seeing way back then. Not now though.
Heck that has been long ago. What 10 years or more. My mind isnt thinking right now.  ;D

Each new model is number designation is chosen by the President of the company.
The model numbers have no connection, or meaning to anything.
They switched in 2001-2003 to MS... because all of the other products
had letters in front of a model number so they switched for continuities sake.
