Not in my case - my 361 hits 14500rpm much faster than my 5100S when I allow it to (carb setting) - but then my 361 is an Euro one..... :)

There is absolutely no comparison in cutting speed - actually my NE346xp also beats the 5100S, both on rev-up speed and cutting speed.     8) 8)

So what makes a good comparison in the Stihl and Husky lines vs the Dolmar 5100 - as far as cutting speed goes? Stihl 270 or 280? Husky 353?

346xp from Husky - none really from Stihl, they have no competetive 50cc pro saw. ::)
