Yes, that´s a good thing. Especially for old people like me. I started my “modern” 550 XP Mrk II Auto Tune up last week after some time. It didn´t run so well, so I let go on idle for a minute or so, and then it was ok. Used it yesterday too and it ran like a dream. Tomorrow I will use my old 254, just to keep it in shape.
I was a little worried acout a chainsaw with a computer processor controling the fuel system, but so far my Stihl CM261 C-M has really been starting easy and running very well, a little early to really know the long term effect with it but think this is what we will find in many new saws.
