    While I'm an old Poulan fan of the 3700's and 4000's I have an unusual interest in the above two saws. They both are 57cc and am wondering if one gas an advantage over the other. Or, is it a Chevy ,Ford deal.

    Yes the antivibe is the deal maker.

    10-10s is a much better saw cutting wise

    My observation would be if you want RPM and chain speed the 10-10S has an edge, like all the other 10-10's before it, it is a hot little saw. The 360 has a full set of decent antivibe, the transformers can be hard to find, it has decent power with respectable RPM. I also thing the 10-10S has a little more balls than the 360 too, I don't think you would have an issue running a 28" on the 10-10 but I'm not sure the 360 could manage a 28 and still keep up the chain speed.

    My nod goes to the 10-10 but I am biased. The lack of antivibe never bothered me and I find I dont think about it whether I'm running a saw with or without.

    I have owned and run both. My choice would be the 10-10. Easier to work on, easier to find parts and when tuned right the 10-10 is the one to run.

    Haven't run a 360, but have a 10-10s and it's a beast. Awesome cutting saw. I also have never noticed any issue due to lack of antivib.
