I wasn't aware of that.
We had both models in the Great White North and I had friends with each of them. The general preference (if memory serves me) was for the 250, being lighter and handier feeling for most. Easier to start too! A few of us on the larger side preferred the grunt of the 350, so I expect like so many such comparisons it would come down to individual preference.
