And possibly other saws in the future - probably homeowner saws - appear to be getting FLIPPY CAPS. the RancherII IPL was released and along with an aesthetic upgrade here and there along with autotune, it's getting FLIPPY caps. :banana:

There's a disturbance in the force.............................:saywhat:


No big deal if the tank still accepts the old style caps. The part about the Stihl caps I hate isn't so much the flippy part. It's the "only goes in one way" thread design.

The 460II and 465II can't be that far away then, with 64cc. Specially the 460 has a low power output for 64cc though, but still more than the "old" 460 - and they are quite a bit lighter than the MS391/311.

I think the whole rancher family will probably be released at the same time, but the IPLs may not. Actually for that matter - I'm looking on the dealer interactive ipl not the old style PDF locator so they may actually be out already, just not in my lookup. I'll look today if I remember.

I was getting worried I was going to have to switch to dolmar or something that doesn't have flippy caps.
