wow, i thought if there was anywere the 359 were better, it would be in the bigger stuff. do you find the 359 better in any area? 

Price.  ;D

I do wonder about durability... seems as though cranking more power out of a smaller engine would tend to shorten its life. But then I've not heard any complaints in this regard for the 357, so maybe it's not an issue?

I have a 357xp and a 365 special. There could be only a pound to 1.5lbs difference in them PHO. Something in 12.??  (cant remember) and 13.6lbs.



If you want a limbing saw and smaller bucking saw. Look at the new 50cc 346xp 11.??lbs with the grey side cover. If you want to save even more weight and more toward limbing old 46cc 346xp 10.??lbs with orange cover.

The 359 just is a cheaper and inferior saw - no miracles will happen (unless it is modded)..... ::)

well, im not racing against anyone i just want to use my saw everyday without tuning and fiddling at the jobsite. also not so happy with saws that require w.o.t all the time to cut anything without bogging. i will use my 2 saws 2150 and 2165 for the next few weeks and then i will be buying a new jonsered 2156 or 2159. ive had a 346oe in the past and didnt really care for it,  im not so happy with the hsqv dealer around here. so a 346 is out of the question unless the new one is as powerful as the 56/ or 59. even at 1lb or so quoted less , i think it will be less strain after carrying a 2165 all day.

Thumper where are you located? That like new 357xp that is woods ported is FS  in my video's I posted in this thread. Cost is less then a new 357 for PHO.  I'm wanting to get a alky saw built and the 357 hasnt seen any real use since 2004. Just a hobby cutter here and use it for gtg's.

Come take it for a test if you are close.

Dial up on my end takes about 10 mins to load 30 sec video. I just start download leave come back and hit replay. Good Luck.

Yep little far for a test drive, sorry.
