    In my experience, it will depend on the bar and chain choice. 346 is faster with .325 and shorter bars, the torque of the Dolly pulls it ahead on the bigger end of the 50cc spectrum. I'm curious what you find though.

    Nice and clean. OCD like others may have. I thought the same thing about 550 and 562, almost same size. Cut with one I rebuilt, then grabbed my 562 and cut. Was surprised how much smaller and lighter 550 felt. Will compare them to 572 when dropping some oak wilt trees. Have you removed a 572 muffler screen and noticed how muffler is opened up more than I thought it would be. GLWS.

    I just took the oiler apart. Everything looked normal. I cleaned everything real good, dabbed a little YB4 around the sealing surfaces, and bolted it back together. Maybe I was just being anal about the dribble. Maybe it will be gone tomorrow. Either way, there's nothing defective in there.

    I would be more worried if most my saws didn't leak a little oil while sitting.

    Just ran this thing making a couple noodling cuts in some ash rounds. Shoulda video'd because it runs really good. I set it on the bench so I'll have a report on leakage later. I'm heading up north to the Evart area tomorrow, I can bring it along if anyone wants to take it for a spin. @bowtechmadman this would look really good sitting next to a 5100s.

    I wish I could share your concern Paul. I snuck out to the shop before heading out this morning and there wasn't a drop on the bench under it. Still plenty in the bar too. The dribble is fixed. This one's ready for a new owner.

    It depends on what size bar and chain you would like, in some setups I have some pretty nice stuff. Some pretty used. Here's an example: these are the two 18" .325 bars I have. Either of these with one chain would add $25.

    Yamabond 4. Anaerobic sealer. There are quite a few alternatives out there.

    Daymn Tim,
    I wish I’d seen your ad first. I bought this one Monday for a friend with a tree service. He gave me two to make one and I was able to get the 45cc one up and running. Not enough of the 50cc left to save, and it’s his fav climbing saw.
    Oh well, when it gets here I’m gonna offer it to him for $375. After running this 346, if he don’t want it I’ll be proud to keep it. Screaming little saw.

    See ya! Jim

    Looks like a solid deal on that one Jim.
