Husky 350 v/s 450
« on: March 11, 2011, 03:03:54 pm »
I know about the 350 and only ran and seen a 450 at a stock saw racing competition.

What is the big differences in the 450 compared to the 350? Type build etc?

All I really know is that the 450 is the "strato" replacement for the 350, and that the specs are a bit up on weight and a bit down on max power output.

Hard to feel any weight difference.

450 is smoother.

350 is stronger.

Then there were two different engines used in the 350 - the original ones had a 49.4cc engine, while the later (US only?) EPA ones used the 51.7cc 353 jug, but with a dished piston to take the compression and power a bit down.

I just picked up a later 52cc model 350. Does this saw come with a cat muffler on it?

350 is 3.1 hp. 450 is 3.2 hp. We have 450's at work now( local line man I am ) and the 450s feel stronger and cut faster then 350's. stock for stock anyways.

As far as I know, it never did.

My 2003 production 45mm/52cc 350 didn't have a cat muffler.

None of the plastic cased saws ever came with the cat muffler due to the effect all of that extra heat would have on the case. Heck, they melted enough of them with the loose muffler deal on the 2nd generation 350/2150. :)
