Yep the demo 540 I tried didn't have them either. I was surprised to see them on the rancher. I figured it was more of a homeowner feature anyway. If they were to be on a xp then they'd have come out on the new 5 series from the start. The pics of the 543xp also showed the flippys if I'm not mistaken.

I havent seen any new pics of 543. I didnt care for stihls version so I hope husky got it right.

I just dont understand taking a simple design and over engineering it. On off seems simple to me. :dunno:

I wonder what the demo 572xp has on them or whatever model name they end up giving the new 70cc class saw. :yougo:

I'm pretty sure they were standard fuel caps

Thanks for video. That helps understand.

You know how sometimes a SOB cap seems to just stick it's way on super fing tight somehow. I wonder if that tool less caps will take trying to crank on it to get it off. Time will tell.

Looks better then stihls try already. :bananarock:

TK whats the deal to going with 1 bar stud though? :confused: Should have left 2 JMO.
Standardized simplicity on a homeowner saw. I haven't bothered to look yet but the side covers are probably interchangeable with other saws now. The 455/460 had it's own designated side cover that didn't fit anything else.

I haven't spilled anything with the 261 but did have an alignment issue a couple times. The cap would grab and turn like it locked but I could tell it didn't. It was annoying but not life ending.

Can I put them on my 346? The regular caps on it make me feel like I am in the 1990's every time I use it. Husky has been way behind in the cap department for a while now. It is nice to see them finally catch up. Now if only someone would engineer a universal flip cap to fit older saws of various brands, I would be able to start collecting the vintage saws again. Twisting them old dinosaur caps on and off all the time made me bored and was a big time waster for me. They might as well have a cork in the pour hole that needs to be removed with a corkscrew...ain't nobody got time for that!!!!

Just wanted to give you guys an update on the flippy caps. Not a single one has failed yet. They all work perfectly.

They all came out of the box perfect. They all went onto the shelf perfect. They all look great. The ones I've shipped out went without any fussing. These are the best caps ever.
