    After selling my MS211, I had the need for a limbing/smaller saw. I decided that with the storm coming, if I was serious, it was time to order. I remember the lack of saws available after the storms last year, so I went ahead and ordered the 346xp with a 16 inch bar. It came yesterday. Gonna run her today. Assembled it with a flashlight in my teeth, so the pic is via the same flashlight source.

    My hearts out to all you folks affected by the storm. We barely got the edge of it here in NE Ohio. The most we have to worry about here is the very rare tornado. The winter storms here aren't much either ... I grew up in Buffalo! I hope you've been able to burn some and at least stay warm till your power is restored. Have fun with the new saw, break it in easy!

    I purchased a 346XP last winter and I really like it. I went from an older Husqvarna 45 to the 346 so it was a definite upgrade for me. However, even though the 346 will cut 90% of what I deal with for some reason I have this urge to buy a larger saw and I don't know why :).

    Good luck with your new 346 you're going to love it.

    Still no power. Knocked out the downed 75 ft spruce. First outing with the xp. Angry little thing! Perfect saw to tackle this tree. Only downside was the sap that I had to clean off the saw afterwards. Took about 3.5 hours to get it done. I left the main trunk, about 16 ft, intact with hopes of milling it.

    The 346 may become your "go to" saw.
    Almost as strong as the 359 & a bit lighter.
