I went by my local Husqvarna dealer on my way home from work and he had 2 346xp's on the wall. One was an etech model with the green fuel cap and the other was older than that with the grey gas cap. I told the owner that these 2 saws he had were not the newest from Husqvarna in that model and he said he won't buy any more 346xp's till those are sold. He said the one with the grey gas cap is an early 2005 one. He wouldn't cut any deal on them either. Price was 475 for either saw with a solid (not spot welded) bar and chain. Is there a big enough difference betreew the 05' vs 09' model other than the primer bulb and silver side cover? Do I buy the pre-etech model or shop elsewhere? problem is the Husky dealers around here don't stock s#!t for chainsaws because they don't sell many, they are all basically lawn mower or tractor stores that have a small display of saws and they don't know much about them. Sucks that Husky can't be sold over the internet, I understand the whole dealer/service thing but the dealers around here don't know anything about what they are selling and they don't even offer the latest. What should I do????????????
