    Same saw for the most part. The 421 has a little more power, bugger better air filter and a few other things I can't remember. Which one to port? pretty obvious the 421

    Here is my 420. I bought it and had it shipped straight to Randy to port. I never even laid eyes on it until I got it back from him. I use this saw more than my 346xp now and it is a blast to run.

    Mr Duramax, is that racing wood, i.e. 10x10 Yellow Poplar? If so, I make your cut 7 seconds, so 14-15 seconds for a double pass. My stock 420 averages out at 19 for that. So...there's a difference!! My 420 rips so yours must be great fun. Now...mine does 19 seconds. Chainsaw races the other week it beat a 346xp, which did it in 23.6. I know someone who will argue that all day long, but it's a fact.

    I think I'll go with a dolmar. No stihl dealer here and the huskys don't handle very well for me at all. The 421 starts like a dream, less $'s than other "pro" saws, weighs less than the stated spec weight too.
    Never heard of them before I saw them in a ma and pa store here in town the other day... cool beans.

    It looks like it. Mine would not beat my 346xp in that size wood, but it has a muffler mod and unlimited coil.
