    Pretty much what I thought. Compare the number of moving parts in the two and get back to me. I'm not bashing Stihl, just that the Kaw is a simpler design. Simple is good.

    According to Stihl, they introduced the BR320 and BR400 24 years ago (1989), and I know the 420's didn't come out only two years after that, so your 420's can't be 22 years old. Are you sure they're 420's and not 400's?

    No need to go to PM. If you (or anyone, including me) post(s) information here that may be incorrect, then this is the place to address it and correct it. You may be correct, however, it doesn't seem so going by Stihl's info.

    No need to be a jerk dude. I just asked a simple question because your statements about having a 22 year old 420 seems unlikely at this point.

    No, I don't know everything. That's why I asked if you were sure. It is also why I asked Stihl directly when the 420 came out. If they tell me that you were right, I'll gladly say so here. The only way to learn anything is to ask and pay attention.
