034 died-Bought a MS362C-M
« on: July 03, 2016, 06:45:51 PM »

034 wouldn't start. Dealer replaced fuel filter, etc and it still wouldn't run. On a hunch he checked and the piston was scored.

He said this is the first 034 he has had go bad. I gave him the saw minus bar and chain so he could use it for parts. Decided to buy a MS362C-M. $599 with my nonprofit discount. So far it seems to be a beast compared to my 034 and does well against my 036. I was hoping for a 3rd saw but will have to settle now.

I bought a 362 awhile back when my Sachs 120SI died, the 362 will just keep getting stronger until its had several gallons of gas run thru it. So far happy with mine although the 25” bar seems to be an oddball size, all my saws before always had 20” bars, getting used to the 25” though as don’t have to bend over as far for anything near the ground.

My 362C-M came with a 20" bar.
