Re: husky 346xp....HELP PLEASE

Take the exhaust off and check the barrel for scoring,if theres no scoring then you have another problem but it sounds like youve siezed it,be careful which 2 stroke oil you use i bought some castrol last year mixed as usual but ended up seizing saw ouch 250 quid bill,the problem apparently was that the oil i used was ok for mopeds out boards etc,but not chainsaws i only use stihl now and no probs so be careful.

Re: husky 346xp....HELP PLEASE

Holy moly thats your problem for sure, run the chain tight? how old is the saw?
Doubt its a grease problem although it hards to tell how worn the needle bearing is - to much heat, lack of chain oil badly worn sprocket, over tensioned chain (see this a lot).

Shoulda bought a Stihl
