Here it is Swine. The MS661C-M

Look at it, drool over it........chances are good you can't buy one for yourself for awhile yet. :banghead:









It even does a nice handstand!!!!!!! :bowdown:



I like the 1/4 turn filter cover hicky thing.









Cool ain't it?

This saw has balls too. Strong runner stock.

Spring AV, smooth handling, and a few oz lighter than the MS660.

Here's Jon making the first cut with it. He had to balance on another log, so it wasn't a real good opportunity to show off the saw. We just wanted to see how it pulled.

Now for some poplar......

OK, we dragged a chunk of hard maple home and cleaned the mud, bark, gravel, and stuff off of it.........it's about 26" in diameter.



Now we are knocking off a cut to get a baseline for the mods.

Here is a stock 390XP in the same piece of wood.......this is just to piss off the Husky lovers. :thumbsup:

In the next installment of "Mastermind Fondles The MS661C-M", I'll work on the muffler, retest, do some port work, retest, rinse, and repeat......

Well, neither chain was really great Aaron......but they were about equal.
OK so Jon stuffed a wad 'o Beech-Nut into the exhuast outlet on the 390XP.:laughing:

Edit:

Actually it was probably Cope, as I done seen a Cope-ring on Jon's jeans in the first 661 video.
