    When you compare the 67cc Super and the 72cc Magnum you'll notice the wider fuel tank and sprocket cover on the Magnum bulks it up pretty good .
    But you need that bigger tank for those extra 5 cc.
    I liked my Super the best.
    My first 038 was the 61cc model, reliable but not a performance equal to the 61cc Jonsered 630.

    My magnum is modded so besides the extra cc's it's just plain rank anyways.

    I had 25 saws I think when I sold my business and the 038 was one of four saws I kept. So imo, it's a keeper.

    Some that ran them in the day remarked the 038 series was a hot weather saw .A few years I did some some work in 95 degree weather .I found that true when they would fire right up with no vapor lock as did several other saws I was using those several days would lock up because of the heat and not start . Evidently the fan cooling must have been well thought out too .

    Back in the day Stihl 038 was a great summer saw and the Husqvarna 266 / Jonsered 630 were great winter saws. The solid carb mount to the cylinder on the Husky and Jonsereds kept the carb from freezing up in winter, but would vapor lock in the summer.

    The rubber intake manifold on the Stihl isolated the carb from cylinder heat in the summer, but the carb would freeze up in the winter.

    I have an annoying issue with dust getting sucked between the filter and carb. Grease didn't work. I'll try some paper gasket next. A good soak in cleaner and a blow out brings it back, but it sucks how much it happens. Every 3rd tree or so.

    A flocked filter does a better job than a screen filter .

    Much. I got a new 346 with a screen. Always had a lot of dust in carb throat. Flocked=none.

    I bought that type of filter once and basically tossed it straight in the bin- went back to genuine Stihl.

    I'm not sure they still make a flocked filter with the fuzzy stuff .The last OEM Stihl filter I bought was for an 036 and it had a kind of paper like filter media .

    My local stihl dealer doesn't know much, they are lost when I ask for a filter for a 038.
