This high-tech engine includes a new carburetor preheating system and redesigned anti-vibration system with very low vibration levels. This durable saw also features a decompression valve and toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers.
The MS 361 works with guide bar with a length up to 24”. This allows you to cut almost eny tree you have to. The best performance this saw shows when using 18” to 20” long bar which makes it much more flexible.
It’s a bit hard to start the MS 361 in a cold weather. There are some companies and models that are intended to start quickly in a low temperature, but it’s not a huge problem: just make 4-6 pulls and your saw is running.
