Done a lot of homework on this and have gotten a 50/50 response on if this combo would work. I do a log load or more of hardwood primarily for firewood. I'm use to a 450, 18" bar full chisel. It does bog down a bit, but it seems to work pretty well. I seem to get into larger stuff and that's seems to be the case with the standing trees espeically. Either way, could a 346xp swing a 20" bar? I can get a 357xp at 10% off list....which seems like a good option and a great saw......it's just that bottom line I'm talking a few 100 bucks more. You guys have been a great resources. Looking forward to the comments.
