HUSQVARNA 346 XP® G
Awesome saw! Light and Powerful
I purchased a 346 xp this fall and this thing just rips through limbing and bucking on small-medium wood. I have a 576 xp for the big stuff, but end up grabbing this one most of the time now due to it being so light and powerful. It has a 18" bar chain and I prefer the Oregon 20lpx full chisel chain compared to the narrow kerf chains.

Best all-around saw, period
I've had this little saw for 10 years, and it's not been pampered. I do all the required maintenance, of course, but it's not just sitting in the garage all year. It's a little hard to start after sitting a couple weeks, and it's loud, but once it's running, it's a real beast. I dropped a tree on it 4 years ago, breaking a few cooling fins off the head, but still no problems. It fired right back up and has been running ever since. I like the light weight, haven't met a tree here in the southeast that it can't handle, and I can go all day. I don't usually write reviews, but this saw has been such a standout that I can't help but spread the word.

This is a good saw for the money.
This is a good saw for the money. I have used it extensivly on my farm. I use this saw along side a competitors larger size saw and it performs just as well and is much more comfortable to operate. The only issue I have is that on occsion its a bit hard to start. Bottom line, I would buy another one.

Unbelieveable saw. Lightweight, high rpm, great power to weight ratio saw. Rips through limbs and also does a fine job bucking the 10 to 15 inch logs. By far my favorite all around saw. Would highly recommend.

my husqy carver
Two summers ago I bought the 346 XP new, and I set it up to be a carver saw with a 1/4 pitch chain and sprocket with a carver bar. I also have a used one that I run a 91 chain on and a 14" sprocket bar. These two saws Have given me limited trouble, in fact any trouble I have had had nothing to do with the way the saw itself runs. it is always bars and routine maintanence.I run these saws more than a logger does and I have NO complaints. So I want to say thank you for making such a dependable saw.

I purchased the 346xp because i wanted a saw that was lighter weight. I own a 266xp, a heavier saw, I have not had any problems with either saw. The 346xp has really been a good saw, I cut firewood for 2 households, mine and my inlaws around 20 cord a year. My son recently purchased a 346xp also because I was happy with mine. The 346xp is really a great saw and I like that it is lighter than my 266xp. Thanks for making a great product.
