I know this is going to start a huge debate, but go ahead and bring it because I was pretty frustrated in the woods yesterday. I was hot enough to switch sides….go from Husq to Stihl and just might. I actually needed to cool off before I wrote this note because I was so annoyed at my Husqvarna 555 AutoTune. I would say about ½ way through a tank of gas I stopped the saw and didn’t start it up for 10 minutes. So I consider this a ‘warm’ saw. I couldn’t get the damn thing to run again. This AT is a mystery. When the saw is cold it works perfectly, but warm….forget it. I actually read the manual and understand the correct procedure to start it ‘warm’ and that has worked flawlessly for a few weeks until yesterday. This saw is only a year or so old and it’s frustrating. I have a homeowner grade Husq 350 that I use as a backup and it runs ridiculously predicable. One pull with choke, 2nd pull it burps, turn choke off and pull and it starts on the 3rd. It’s been years since it hasn’t started like that…even with old gas. I could set my watch to it…..it’s absolutely awesome. I talked with a few shops about the 555AT and it sounds like the computer may need to be reset. If I were to buy a Stihl MS261 would I have to get it reset if I had problems? Are they a bit easier to work on? Do you need the Autotune computer? Maybe my detuned 562XP (555) will work awesome after this adjustment, but what if it happens again? Don’t get me wrong, I can deal with issues on saws….I have had all sorts of issues occur on pro and non-pro saws so I can tolerate a lot, but for all of a sudden my practically new 555 to not want to start…..it’s brutal. Any thoughts? I’d like to switch to Stihl and maybe just go with a pro 50cc saw. I know both Stihl and Husq have their homeowner / landowner / pro grade lines. I just want a predictable saw again! I’m hoping Stihl doesn’t have the same technology.
