Just got the email than Northeast Stihl has MS440's back in stock. Looks like I'll be order a few here this week.

I still have a hard time believing it's coming back, but than again Husky did it with the 372. Stock they run well and feel really light in the hands, I prefer the 372 but I'd be just as happy with a 440.
The story is a bit different, as Husky never actually stopped making the 372xp - they just stopped marketing it in the US for a year or two.  :)

I believe bloodontheice is right, regarding EPA credits etc.

That's the way it has been explained to me not just by Stihl people, but by various power equipment people.

They're retailing for 940$ with a 25" bar.
The ones I'm ordering are 25" ES Bars and 33RSC chain.
Most guys around here will only jump to a 70cc saw in order to run a 25" bar
Guys around here run 20" bars on 60cc saws.

Ran into a snag ordering the 046 muffler, it hits the chain brake lever, but it'll get a trim and it will clear it.
Ive got it tuned rich 12.8-13k since it has 5 times more exhaust area now as opposed the stock muffler.
It's got a 7 tooth sprocket, 20" ES bar on it and Windsor 50APL chain, my favorite firewood cutting setup.

Imo 20" is a bit much on the lighter 60cc saws - balance issue, not really a power issue.
