    They make more power and it's at a higher RPM. They cut faster.

    I can't speak from years of experience, and this is coming from a hobbyist, but I love my Husky 450 as a everyday mid-size saw, and my new MS461 is a beast.

    I can’t comment for him, but I’ve hauled many a 372, 044/440 and 441 up a tree when it was time to block out tops or just take the top out of a spar in one piece.

    My muscles aren’t that big, either.;)

    In addition to the 346/372 I mentioned before the other saws that are in the all time greats are 357, 262, early 044, 79cc Dolmar/Makita.

    I’ve never had the opportunity to run the smaller cc 2 series Huskys but I know they have quite a following and I’ve never seen one outside of Spike’s personal collection.

    20190916_182603.jpg ported 266/268/288 are my top 3 to run
    Ported 371/372 are my next favorite series.
    Everyone's different
    I do like my 257 husqvarna and 261 carby stihl for small stuff
    but I'm a 70cc and up man usually.

    I don’t know about you but I’d rather be tied into a tree vs running a long bar up on spring boards.

    I spur up, then tie in... Spring boards aren’t really my thing.

    For me, personally, the saw i liked the most is the MS 044/440 by Stihl.
    Two years ago i had a early one with 10mm Pin, that saw was a beast!

    Two weeks ago i sold my like new 440 Magnum Artic to get the 066/660... But there will come a new 44 to me pretty soon :)

    I’m sorry if it seems that way I have a lot of experience in cutting firewood since 1980. I’m no expert I did take my lumps in the process. I was lucky to have a friend who owns a husky dealership to give me tips along the way. I had close calls too lucky I survived. The first 20 years in the forest wasn’t easy.

    Got it thanks.

    I have the 346 xp’s But I picked up the 162se also. I’m on that 60 cc edge and still a small sized saw. I have the non running 350’s, 357’s, to play with.

    82cc Mac's are the shiz mccniz mine pulls a 32 all day. Other favorite is 1 of my 70cc 10 series saws 1 particular 7-10 is my go to saw. The 7-10 with no brake is just under 8kg 20inch bar half full of gas. Not bad for a metal saw that came from the 60s
