    What was the better model ? I’ve seen 10mm and 12mm wrist pin mentioned ... bad ass lightweight saw that can put some wood on the ground IF a guy knows how to make em zip !

    I have both the 10mm early angled top fin 044`s and the later 12 mm angled fin/straight fin cylinder saws. Early 10 mm had a bit better port timing and more open exhaust port mufflers. All this does not matter as each saw got ported when its turn came to be put into the woods operation. I really have not run stock saws very much for production cutting which I have been involved with since the late 60`s. Putting wood on the ground has been what its all about for most of my life, no money in sitting and watching the trees grow.

    I’ve built and run both 044 and 046, I prefer the 044, less weight, close to the same power. BY far my favorite mid range saw in my collection. Merry Christmas pioneerguy600! :)

    You should try a hybrid sometime, same weight as a 044, more oomph from the 046 P&C. Ran mine yesterday, always a pleasure.
    Merry Christmas grizz55chev !

    You won`t regret it. I built a few of them and kept 2 that I did some port work to them, set squish at .020 and .019 , they surprise even guys that have run 044`s for lots of years.

    My 7yr old grandson was sitting in my lap this morning. We were watching Youtube and Sawdoc256's new hybrid video - he looked up and said "Pop, we need one of those!".

    I have to agree with him...

    I agree wholly!
    Ran my hybrid again this afternoon, its funny that I pick it up most often even with 45 other saws setting at the ready.
