Re: 034 Super VS. 036 Pro

After taking a good look at the 034 and 036, I'm really tempted to sell off my 029 Super, 4 028's, 390 and 039, and a few others that weigh more but put out less power than the 034 and 036. I've got a 440 and 441, otherwise I might hang onto the 390. So I may be in the market for a 036 pro or two pretty soon. It'll depend on what I think of the Makita 6401 I just bought. Can't wait for it to arrive! Always been curious to try a Dolmar. diggersdad is telling me that I'll reach the 6401 over the 440 and that he sold his 360 and 361 after using the Dolmar 6401 for a week. Hmmm.

Anyhow, I thing I'll go back to the pawn shop where I saw the 034 Super. If it's still there, and if he'll allow me to remove the muffler and everything looks good, I may try to make a trade with him.

The 036 is much smaller and lighter than a 6401 on the outside. The 036 PRO is a classic of all time.

That's what I'm seeing looking at specs. Lighter weight and same power. Being a Stihl guy anyway, if the 034 or 036 performs as well or anywhere close to the 6401, I'll go with the Stihl.

I think the 6401 is slightly stronger but if you timed them both with the same chain and felt the weight and balance of the saws AND being a Stihl guy anyway,you might go with the Stihl.

Yeah, I think you're probably right. The guys at the Rental Ranch have been great over the years to so I'd really hesitate to quit on them, especially to go mail order with Baileys for the blue Dolmars.
