Summary:
I use this 80% of the wood I cut. 18" bar with Oregon LGX chain good combo if you are experienced. This is a prof. tool, it demands respect. Good pair with my Husqvarna 570. I went with the best 50cc class saw as i knew it would get more use then my larger 70cc saw. As long as you are running a sharp chain it is pretty hard to stop/slow down.

Strengths:
Fast cutting, Light weight, Lots of power, Lots of Torque, Revs Hight, Revs Fast, Starts easy, runs smooth. Chains are fair priced over larger/longer cahins

Weaknesses:
None

Summary:
I have a 3120xp, 394xp, two 372xps, 281xp, a couple 55s, 455R, 272xp project, Stihl 036 Pro, 017, 044 project. My 346 gets used, a lot. I compares well with my 55s (53cc models)- powerbands are just different. I use my 455 to loan out...do not like the plastic bucket carrying a power unit that the consumers saws all seem to have...prefer a true crankcase. The 455 is tuned well and modded and the 346 still outcuts it. Outcuts my 036 Pro as well.

Strengths:
light, easy to limb with, easy to mod and get usable gains. Has good power, I use it interchangeably with my 55 for limbing and firewood. Goes with a 372 into the mountains as a backup. Mine is an older, hopped-up, pre-NE saw, had if for some time. And, very easy to work on. Pop the top, it's all there.

Weaknesses:
uses a bit of gas, but all my saws do, this one is no worse.

Strengths:
power, speed, durability, best power to weight ratio,runtime between fillups, actually has aluminum in the wrap around handle. This is a fast cutting machine.

Weaknesses:
none that I have found

Summary:
I bought my 346 for $390 new from norwalk power over a year ago. About 10 years ago i bought a 55 rancher for $300 and i like the 346 a degree or 2 better. Course now you can't find the 346 for $390, but rather about $490. Other saws i own are a 372xp, a 576xp and 026 and 044 Sthil's. Whoever doesn't like this saw other than for factor of price, is either very ignorant or received a lemon from the factory(which i think to be very rare).

Strengths:
Overall has great power, quick revving, nice balance, very smooth with little vibration, easy to start, nice sound. Can carry around all day long to do limbing or cutting firewood. Have expectations for this saw to last me years and years!!

Weaknesses:
Purcase price is rather high,, but on the contrast, costs just as much as s a 026 sthil which is a comparable unit. Like someone said in a previous post you get what you pay for in a commmercial grade saw.

Summary:
Great saw! If you own one, make sure your plug gap is correct, because it makes a big difference. Bought it off a guy who bought it new and it didn't run right because it was gapped at .015".

Strengths:
Fast saw. Lot's of power. Idle's real good. A lot lighter than my husky 61 and my mcculloch mac 10-10.

Weaknesses:
Runs out of gas quickly.

Summary:
I bought the 550 xp which is the replacement for the 346. Outstanding saw so far as it should be for the 600$ price tag. I'm not into brand wars but as a comparison; when cutting along side 455/290 it simply makes them look like toys r us saws! Not bashing them as the 550 is replacing my 029 which is now back up and still a favorite. The 550 is simply that good! Also, mine has 18" pixel bar and h23 chain running amsoil pro @50:1

Summary:
Stick with cutting your big wood piles when it is colder than 50 degrees. In other words, they have not made a bar oil good enough to keep up with this screamer. Good to use a synthetic oil for mix. I use Amzoil Sabre - 80:1 ratio... No problems whatsoever. No smoke. Easy starting.

Strengths:
Super fast cutting and good staying power with sharp chain Starts very good; air cleaner stays clean well and is easy to clean; Great in cold weather or warmer weather. Perfect for wood dia. less than 12" Reliable, reliable.

Weaknesses:
18 inch bar will heat up is cutting in warmer weather; nothing you can do except run synthetic motor oil with STP Oil treatment to make it sticky. (expensive but works) 12" dia. wood limit to maintain power & speed.
