    I have one I'd sell for 325 plus shipping, it's all stock. I don't have any pictures of it at the moment, but can get some if you're interested.
    I had it out on a small job a couple weeks ago and had my son record this video.

    That's a lot of cuts in 90 seconds! Looks like a good performer!

    Thanks, they're fun little saws.
    I wouldn't let it go, but I've got 5 so I'll probably be okay.

    346..... pound for pound one of the best saws ever made.they don’t even need ported..... muff mod and remove carb limiters...... bam! Screaming little machine.

    And it’s always good to buy from a reputable seller with a good eye for saws....... although he owns a few of the orange and white ones so he ain’t perfect....... :laugh:

    Got one new in the box and probably at least another five 353's/2152 and a ported 2145 with a 346 top, I'll probably be alright, probably...
    I'll get some pictures tomorrow, if they don't get posted shoot me a PM as I may forget. We got slammed with a storm this week and I've been pretty busy around the house cleaning up the mess, even ran one of my lightly modded 346's today:chainsaw:.
    Thanks Gary :cheers:.
    I'm not sure, up here we'd probably be more likely to use "hat trick" :).
    I really enjoy running them, hard not to like them, and yes MM, limiters removed, and base gasket delete makes them come to life.

    I never claimed to be perfect buddy, but I know what the guys want, and a lot want those creamsicles :yes:.
    Hope all is well up your way, it's been a while.

    Owned two creamsicles back in the day ( ms360 & ms660 ) good running units , however got a little tired of Stihl,s proprietary issue,s . I recently went in on a new Echo Timberwolf with my youngest son to back up his Sachs - Dolmar . Actually for my firewood needs my 572 xp has been flawless. I purchased a Moose hunting property lot up North this spring and have additional tree clearing this fall that a 346 xp will definitely enhance for a Oldtimer ! lol.

    Don’t listen to them. 346xp ports better than almost any saw. It’s worth it.

    Since Brett has hoarded them all 346s are getting harder to find. $325 is a great price!

    I believe I have owned about every saw out there and I still think the 346 ported might be my favorite!
