neither are hydrostat..
Yes, that's an entirely different scenario. Much less sensitive to fluid composition and much cheaper to repair if an issue did arise.

Which is why when I went Kubota shopping it had to be non-hydrostat and non-common rail fuel injector. I also did not buy a C-M chainsaw.

Hmmm.... I use a 261 CM as my main blocking saw on my wood processor. Figured this last winter I have ran a little more than 30 - 35 gallons of fuel through it (based on the amount of 50:1 oil I went trough) and its been flawless. Why don't you like the M-tronic saws?

I never said that there was any problem. My Stihl dealer did not recommend it which was enough for me to opt for an MS362 manual tune saw.
