I was going to say I've mostly changed over to battery but didn't want that to get confused with the beautiful woman earlier.

 

Your confusion is very much like .....

I'm not totally sure this samurayjack is a real bloke anyway, and he revived an old thread from 2014.

Is it Vesp do you think ?😃

From an engineers point of view, the MS201Mtronic is a much simpler machine to work on compared to the 540T.....well, I personally think so! 

I have been told the double strop clip on the 540XPT is something like orgasmic.....I don't climb but that is what I have learnt. You can clip it on to your belt clip thingy which is a positive or so I am told.

The 540 has a mother of throttle cables to fit and the top handle has an integrated fuel tank making a dropped saw an expensive repair. 

On using them, compared to the MS200T, the MS201 doesn't have the same grunt at low revs but the cut speed, if the initial pickup is clean, is very similar to the 200. The 540...less experience and haven't timed the cuts.

As I said...I don't use them apart from servicing them!

Good question, thought it might be a bot. My money for Vesp was 

Welsh Cleaning Service because of the similarity to Scottish Cleaning Service, but the posts don't sound enough like Vesp. Either way if he's joined back it'll be a game to keep us guessing.

540 performs well providing it is kept warm, which is a huge issue. Sold mine and went back to the 200t 

Strato type engines need heat to make them work well...similar to CATs in that respect.
