I got 346XP yesterday and went through a tank of gas last evening. The saw is light as can be, yet cuts like a wiz! It has RPM's of 14,000 vs 12,000 for the homeowners saw and that makes it much quicker and active. I think I made the right choice, esp considering the terrible terrain that I have to deal with these tops and downed beech, but the forest is really opening up. About 25 yrs ago someone did some thinning of beech and TSI work on a few acres of my property and that area is now has some of the largest timber and without doubt is more beautiful because of it.
