We have one 338 where I work and it seems to be alright. Everyone uses the 200s though. I had a 335 back in the day and promised myself I would never buy a husky climbing saw again. They had great power, not as balanced as the 200 but not bad and they went through the tree better. But the big defect . . . THEY DIDNT OIL. I sent mine in to get fixed came back guess what . . . IT STILL DIDNT OIL. 200 is in the budget for me next year. I would rather wait and buy a good saw then suffer because I have a crappy one (which I am doing now). But its all ok I didnt buy it.
