362 adjustable carb ? stihl
« on: April 11, 2016, 04:58:14 pm »
Was the 362 adjustable carbs in past or all M-tronic?  This guy says his dealer told him this was a new model with adjustable carb. But I wonder why it dont have the laid back cylinder etc of the new edition 362 that was so light.

Even the old style clutch cover.

Got it cleared up already.  Guys dealer is full of himself telling him it was new model if this info is true.

3 generations of 362 and his new one is actually the gen 1, the oldest style. Gen 2 was mtronic, gen 3 is the slant fin cylinder.

I was going to say that saw looks just like the one I have been working on for a tree service guy.    I thinks he told me it was a couple of years old already.

Guy says they re-released the carb version Gen 1 and the Gen 3 with updates for NE areas for 2016.   
I sure wouldnt want the Gen 1 unless it was because of wanting the carb version. I would rather have the option of the carb version on the Gen 3.
