    Sorry but I think mine would do fine but prolly need to
    add a big saw 3120 or 880. This west coast thing is freekin
    hilarious as wood is wood yes some wood is bigger so you
    select tool and upscale equipment but same process and
    by the way we have big trees in other parts of the USA.

    Really, it is so funny that the only place that saws take a beating
    is west coast lol. I remove all paint off a brand new bar in a month
    when business is going good I guess i'm just not even using a saw
    and guess that 67inch dia sycamore was just a sapling! I am startig
    to think the ego's grow bigger than the trees out west but to each
    his own I really like husky's and dealer is a mear ten miles away.
    I have used 272 365 288 266 2101 372 084 075 028 044 in the past
    and they all held up but I still likes my husky's. I have never let popular
    belief cloud my thinking and from using them all day in day out is
    how I form opinion and price, features is what I like about the big
    dawgs. March 97 tornado the saws never got a break or us for that matter
    three weeks of run fill run fill 16 to 20 hours a day if that is not a beating
    what is? I refuse to throw my saw off a mountain or leave tail gate down
    and pour coals to my pickup to prove I can beat up my saws.:laugh:

    Too bad you stand 16 hands tall and the 346 won't fit them thar grubby palms of your'n....

    I don't think I've ever been so blown away as when I first ran a 346...it was Greffardized and I'd won it off'n gypologger on ebay....holee molee guacamoleee!!!

    Yep, the 372 is sweet! but the 7900 is better..blows away an 046, even the 385 Husky...:chainsawguy: (given that all are stock) Can't wait for my ported 372W to arrive from Ed...it should put a whuppin on my PP7900, I'm told.

    The 2100 is also one of the greatest saws ever....there's 2 of em on Andy's bench right now..waiting on fuel lines to arrive from Baileys. Andy said that if I don't get the parts to him pronto, I'd find the saws at the bottom of Lake Tuck. Funny it's the 026 that I always thought would best be used as a boat anchor....:laugh:
