Okay, let's see those Huskys.

Hey ya'll,

Seeing as how there is a Homelite and Stihl picture thread I thought it was high time there be a Husky thread. I do not personally own a Husky saw, being a STIHL man, sorry but I thought one was needed. That, and I am currently semi-restoring a Husky 65 for a customer and when it is finished I plan on posting some pictures of it on here. I say lets let this thread extend to the entire Husky family, so Jonsered, Partner, and Poulan are all welcome by me. Heck, if its cool with everyone else I would even say show your Makita/Dolmar here seeing they are made in Sweden and use Husky bars.

Re: Okay, let's see those Huskys.

This has become my favorite go to saw. Extremely light, with excellent balance.



These were the saws used for a big project in my yard where we cut down some hybrid poplars that had out lived their usefullness. One of the stumps measured 40 x 48" and was 21 years old.

The saws are my 346 XP, a 372XP and a 357XP.





Here is my Makita 6401. I got this 1 month before the cataylytic converters were mandated on the 6421. This saw has great torque, but is a little heavy for 64cc. It would be a power house with the 79cc upgrade.

Re: Okay, let's see those Huskys.

I have a nice old Rancher 44, I think it had a bad bar since it pitched the chain, then pitched a new chain inside 30minutes. An 18" bar upgrade fixed that, I've dropped and blocked five trees in the last two days, plus cut up some logs I had dragged up earlier.
I thought I had a shot of it, apparently not though. I'll get one tomorrow.

Re: Okay, let's see those Huskys.

My Rancher:

A few hours work, all my back would allow:

The longer bar improved the balance of the saw, it's nearly perfect with the nose hanging down about 1/2" when held by the top handle. It used to be pretty tail heavy before.

Re: Okay, let's see those Huskys.

Brand spankin new yesterday Husqvarna 562XP. I put a tank through it so far. Maybe I'll do a review after getting some time on it.

Initial impressions so far:

Very strong
Incredibly smooth, excellent anti vibe
Improved choke/run switch, (pull out and up to choke, down to normal run and spring loaded down to kill, then it returns to run)

I've got a tech lite bar coming, the dealer is getting me one for cost.

Re: Okay, let's see those Huskys.

Gee, with all the "XP" models I'm reluctant to post my new 440E, 16". Well, it looks a lot like the XP models shown, except my saw has the quick adjust, looks to be a much lighter duty as there is only one "nut" holding the clutch housing on, the bar too.

I've got no more than a couple hours on my Husky, my first Husky, and I love it, albetit, the bar sprocket got stuck after about the first 20 minutes of cutting into a large White Pine trunk, I was shortening the stump and had cut from three sides because the trunk was much larger than the 16" bar on my Husky. So a lot of buried bar tip cutting in sticky pine.. that could have been the problem. I posted in another thread here on my experience with the stuck sprocket - making an advertisement here hope I'm not in trouble with the Husky saw club

Edit: I forgot to mention on the JD FEL WOW! Nice "support" equipment for your saws.

No shame at all. Every saw has a purpose and a place, whether it's a 100cc beastie or a big box store Poulan. My brother has a 42cc Craftsman that fits his needs perfectly.

Now whan CAD sets in, that's another story.

Yeah, I wouldn't do half the wood processing I do if I didn't have that tractor. Tractor hydraulics don't need Advil the next day!

Re: Okay, let's see those Huskys.

Hi jerry nj

I saw your post on the stuck sprocket and wasn't sure. Sometimes wood can get jammed in between the chain and bar, sometimes at the sprocket causing the saw to be "jammed". Generally I just put the bottom of the bar on a log and push forward while hitting the throttle. Normally it will be fine in one second.

Now where are the pics?
