    Good looking 353, ready to rock. I had this saw out cutting firewood two weekends ago and she did a great job. My BIL would have taken it then although he has a bunch of .063 chains so he's stuck with his ms290:chainsaw:.
    It has the metal intake clamp so no worries there(if your the type who worries).
    She fires up easy, and oils great.
    This would be a great candidate for a 346 P&C and to have ported, or a nice saw to use as is, your choice.
    Saw is being sold PHO for $350, pictures coming soon.
    Thanks for looking,
    Brett

    Here's some pictures for you guys.
    The OP engraved/scratched his number into the handle, it's not real noticeable but it's there. I will send a picture of it to anyone serious about the saw, but I don't want to post it here out of courtesy to him.

    Nice looking saw. Great feller to deal with here!

    I have two of these 353s, one with a 346xp top end. They are a great saw!

    Welcome to AS Darnz :).
    I've often though to bad things cost so much overseas lol.
    Thanks for looking.
    Thanks, and thanks.
    I like them a lot too, you don't have to constantly have them revving to the moon to cut with them, they are pretty forgiving in the cut for a 50cc saw.

    For years I thought my Stihl 026 PRO was the best overall firewood saw that was ever made. Then I bought a used Husky 353 that ran well, just like this one likely does. I now rate the Husky 353 the best firewood saw in the business. The fuel economy of this model still amazes me.

    One of my friends had five chainsaws, including this one. He needed money and sold all but one. He kept his Husky 353.

    Thanks man.
    I prefer the handling of the huskys myself. I agree these and the 359 are great firewooding saws.

    Out of all the 2152/353 and 2153/346 I've had the baddest stock one was a 2153. That saw was stolen from me about 4 years ago.
    Just sold a 2166 yesterday, and have a 2159 with a scored piston in the needs a bit of work pile. I like most all saws, but you know I like the little 50cc husky/jreds a lot :yes:.
