See why the UK tree guys say it handles so much better then 346 snedding.  550 looks so much narrower and slimmer to flip around.

Thanks - but the pic from above is hard to judge by, since the flanking saws appear at different angles, while the middle one is from streight above.   ;)

Great info. Injection is right around the corner now, with stihl having injection on one of its  concrete saws.


Comparison of the 2 side by side.

346
Width body 6 5/8
width handle 8 3/4
length 15 5/8

550
width body 6 3/8
width handle 8 1/2
length 16 7/8


Mitch can you get height measurements?

Now I can test with a stock 550 and 3/8  and 325.   ;) ;D Brand new on first tank of fuel.

Lot of horse trading with another Bengals fan (that was a bonus when I met him today halfway for the trading). Then again most know that is what I like to do.




Bet you wont see this combo to often.





The echo 3 pin clutch tool does work on the husky 550xp

It was  already hard enough on me to drive 55mins to trade (thank goodness we met halfway). 2nd day on a cold has me wore out.
