stig from Denmark =  The whole injection thing is just so different.

No choke or gas.
In order to cold start the saw, you press the bulb below the stop button maybe 8 times in order to build pressure for the injection.
I've yet had to pull more than twice to start the saw.

The pumping thing is only when it has been sitting for a longer time.
When I have been splitting wood it'll sit for hour or more and start right up on first pull, no pumping necessary.

It has incredible low end power, when you pressure it, it sort of settles down and just pulls through.
This is with an 8 tooth sprocket, mind.
To me it feels like a 661 with the agressiveness of a 70 cc saw.

My dealer came by today and cut firewood with the 462 and 500i.
He said the same thing, there is no comparison, it is a completely different animal.

I would love to see a torque curve for it, bet it is way flatter than other saws in this class.
It could almost fool one into thinking it was a 4 stroke.

I really love the 462, but this is a way better saw.

The timing is a bit weird, this coming right on top of the 462, which was in itself a big leap forward.

My dealer thinks it has something to do with Jonsered going out of the market and Husky having delivery problems on some of their bigger saws.
Also, they have been experimenting for a long time with this, guess they just got it ready.

I'm really looking forwards to taking this saw to the woods after Easter.
