The current 420SC/421 is heavy for just 42cc, but on the flip side the price is low (in the US) for the quality.For trail work I totally agree with Philbert! A strong 40cc class saw would be great! Don't exclude the Husqvarna 543XP or if an older generation is interesting, I LOVE my Hitachi CS40EK = Tanaka ECS3800/01 or it's stronger brother would be an option Hitachi CS38EL = Tanaka ECS 4500/01. Also am a great fan of the Dolmar 420!
Thanks for letting us know! It's cool to see an op back after over 3 years. Lots of these threads never see any closure.I ended up with a gray NOS Echo CS346 still in the box for basically free as part of a package deal on a generator before hurricane Irma. Sold the generator for a mild profit and kept the saw It worked well for cleanup and should be fine as long as it stays reliable.
