My wife would disagree with you on the worth of the starting system and also not be so impressed with your inability to carry an additional 1/2 pound. Unless, you've actually pull started both, why didn't you just stick with the first three words of your post and leave it at that?
I worked on a easy start 250. Great idea for those that need such.
The 85 year old guy that I got my 360 from sold it so he could go buy a Stihl easy start model. That 360 even with the compression release depressed id a bit to pull if you are weak. I have a new like old 021 and my dad's very old and worn 011 and both show need a good follow through pull for sure to not jerk. :)
Have to say while it is not an easy start the 360 is the first professional grade saw I have used it and I love it.
Does Stihl have the easy start on higher end line trimmers?
Easy2Start Looks like only on the homeowner trimmers, not the pros. http://www.stihlusa.com/products/tri...wner-trimmers/
I still love the easy start. Heck if they come out with an electric start I'll get one. :)
Stihl makes great products....I own their saws, blower, weed eater and edge trimmer. I abuse the heck out of all of them and they just continue to take it! Keep them tuned up and clean.....they last a long time. You can buy cheaper products but you get your money's worth with Stihl......
