that redmax 5000 is the only 5000 I have ever seen, not many redmax saws around here and up north there are ZERO of them, not saying there not a good saw but just no dealers

Nothing wrong with the 5000 Redmax. They were a very popular saw down here. Dealers did not like it when they were discontinued. Tough saw and good power for only $499 the last year available. 152 Efco is a stronger blocking saw but the 5000 is better in the limbs.

I think Mike was referring to the Partner 5000 and 5000 plus.

Bushweasel = Jason from Idaho ran a self ported 45cc .----speaking of whom ,where did he wander off to ?

Since a few new forums have started  and a few others have less traffic , it seems some have changed user names now I'm about half lost who is who any more .

This little GTG that Kevin did last month inspired me to change my Husky 346XP NE to 3/8" RSC from the .325 that was on it. I put the .325 B&C on my Husky 350 chainsaw that doesn't have as much power as the NE.

 From my observation it seems 3 cubic inch is about the break off point from the original ideas they had about chain size .It seems those above ran 3/8" and smaller ran .325 . You get closer to 2 cubic inch and it drops down to 3/8" lo pro/pico .

On the other end those above 6 cubic inch it was .404 but here of late it seems it can go either way ,3/8" or .404 .That would of course depend on the region and preference of the saw operater .

Any one do a timed test cut between a stock 346OE VS stock 346NE VS stock 52cc 350? I finally got my 346 OE running today. Runs good IMO. I had to rob lots of parts off of my 350 though. I think i'll just keep the 350 for parts. They dont bring much on ebay...

I thought it was in the first post of this thread but Kevin had already put the ported cylinder on the 346 OE.

But we did run the old and the new stock together at one time and there was a noticeable torque increase on the NE.

The OE did its best, more or less, to let it feed itself and not push on the bar.

MOS  we had played with the OE NE and 350 when they were stock for stock running 325 chains only. That I can remember before this testing was done.
 No times were kept just comparing saws in cut. There was a noticeable torque difference felt in the cut leaning on them in the OE to NE. IMO stock the 350 wasnt even in the ball park as the OE or NE.
