    Thanks, good old saws.
    I like the way the 254 handles, the outboard clutch is nice for balance, just don't pinch it unless you have another saw to get it out or a tractor handy :eek:.

    I found that out a long time ago. I always bring at least 2 saws in the woods. Lol
    Been there a time or 2.

    Well..... the tree50 is bigger than the 346 so..... has to be stronger, No?

    Yes, and tree53 is even betterer.
    That's why I like the 450's(favorite non mag saw), same basic specs as the 350/353, easy access air filter(for pictures and the like).
    Great little saws for the price. But if you want something to mod the 350/353 is the way to go.
    I try to have all those on hand here at all times, need another 450 just sold one two weeks ago.

    No sir the transfer ports are not as good design I believe. Same for 357xp vs 359. The xp saws in general usually have a better cylinder. You can port the 350/359 to perform well though. 2cc’s is barely a difference in a chainsaw anyway.

    Real angry it would be worth the drive for me to come up to Kevin's and get my hands on it if he would let me.
