Come spring I took 13 car trailer loads clear full and strapped down off my 1 acre homestead. About as badly tangled on the ground all over the place as an old growth un-used forest area.

    Yeah I was tired all right completely worn out fact wagging the 372 day after day trimming branches. If (famous last words) I would have had the little 346 back then it would have been absolutely no work at all as it was I had no choice all I had was one big saw to do it all live and learn.
    Did it look like this mess? This was our ice storm of 2008. It wiped out our 36 acre woodlot, our back yard and the trees on our farm next door. The picture with the tree sitting on top of the tree truck is funny. They had just stopped when the tree fell on their truck. The tree you see cut down in the foreground that is on the wires was removed by me about and hour before this picture was taken. I cut that while standing in the bucket of my tractor. I was trying to open up our road. We lost out power for almost a week.

    Ice storms are my worst fear to deal with. Been a few years since we lost power due to one for a week or so now.
    Watched the limbs out front take the power right out. Sure wish back in the day they would have used underground wiring, but that wasnt the case in the 1900's when this place was built.

    I'm also the last house on my own transformer way off the road.

    I cut pro for more than 10 years and still remove trees as a side job [like I need more things to do]. The 346 will run a 16" bar and a 3/8 chain. Modded the little saw is as strong as a good running 357. I run a 18" with a 3/8 chain on my modded one. I actually just sold my 357 to a buddie because it was sitting too much. A 357 is one of the best all around saws for a 1 saw plan. JMHO/experience. CJ

    What exactly did you do to your 346xp to mod it?

    Most people do whats called a woods port. Opening exhaust port, intake port, some change port timing, some work over transfers, some do pop up domed pistons, some cut squish bands, also cutting off base of cylinder to get tighter squish and more psi, etc etc and add then for a final touch add a 357 carb.

    Some stop at just a muffler mod which helps too. Just be sure to do a carb retune afterwords.

    I can see where all of that would lead to a high performance saw. Thanks for the info.

    Yep all of the above except the popup, would rather cut the jug and comb chamber than use a popup. Don't forget the aircleaner the 346 stock one is poor. CJ

    I am in the buy a stock high performance saw and leave it alone crowd.

    If a person likes messing with small engines a 346 would be an awesome platform to start with no doubt. But I like not working on small engines and I want complete reliability and besides that I like quiet at least stock muffler quiet, hotrod saws are loud. ymmv

    It was there you just missed it.

    I have never had a problem just using the 346 air filter set up on mine with 357 carb and OE 45cc, the 357 surface area would be a plus but isnt needed in my case. My 45cc pulls 3/8 full comp chain just fine too.

    Any video of your 346 in the cut?
