    Results of Green Tractor Talk's second $100 giveaway

    As the lucky winner of August's video competition, I am reporting with what I've acquired for the $100. First I have to put out a good word for my local dealer, Sloan's in Linden MI. They graciously accepted my six week old MS362, a $30 coupon, an expired $100 gift certificate, and $120 cash in exchange for a brand new MS441 R C-M!!! I really thought I would just spend the certificate on chains and oil, but I just couldn't stop thinking about the new M-Tronic Stihl. My MS362 was nice, but this MS441C is too good to be true. The M-Tronic carburetor controls make it a breeze to operate, and it is always at peak performance. Yes it's heavier than my old saw, but it cuts so much faster that you finish before becoming worn out. Thanks to Brian, and all who organized and participated in the great giveaway.





    This is the nicest feature, ONE position for fast idle and choke! Then run, then stop.

    Thumbs up Congrats!

    Awesome! What's the M-Tronic? Electronically controlled carburetor? I know Stihl has a fuel injected cut-off saw. I'm thinking that'll migrate into the chainsaws before too long.

    Thanks all for the kind words. My 441 has the "short" 20" bar on it. It's a little nose light and probably would balance better with a 25". M-Tronic is kind of a stop gap to fuel injection. There are no external adjustments on the carb for mixture or idle speed.
