I think the problem is the stuff Im cutting is to hard for the chainsaw.
I've got an older 260 Pro as well. Love that old girl! This is it sitting next to my 462 when I bought it last year. I've also got a 261 that I love as well. I fully expect all three of those saws to last me for the rest of my life, and then go on to somebody in my family if they want them. I've never owned a Husky, so I know nothing about them. But there are plenty of pros that use them every day, all day, for years on end. And the OP didn't mention which MODEL of those saws he had. Were they the cheap "farm boss" or homeowner grade with the plastic cases vs. the magnesium cases? The OP gave almost zero information, so that makes it difficult to steer him in the right direction.I have a Stihl 026 Pro that I 've had since 1997, I used to have a wood-burning stove for the house and would cut maybe 10 - 15 cord a year with it and only thing I've done was had bar dressed, new chains and a tune up about once every 4 -5 years. Can still go out today and it'll run strong with just a few pulls. I agree, you must not have your mix correct, it is better to run slightly rich than lean on the mix.
husqvarna owns gardena, mcculloch, poulan pro, weed eater, jonsered ,redmax and others with most sharing many parts save the plastic coversWhat happens to them?..The only thing I can imagine is that you are not using the correct fuel mixture...I don't particularly care for Stihl, myself, but they are recognized as a good piece of equipment...Josered is the premiere saw.....not sure about Huskee
Not sure what you're talking about. Saws fail all the time.They make chainsaws that can cut concrete! The saw engine doesn’t fail. The chain wears but in the end the concrete is sliced in two. You tell me I’ll ruin my saw on wet tree wood? I doubt it.

I guess it depends on the definition of "fail." If you mean "fails to cut wood," then yes, that happens all the time. In my experience, this is almost always because the chain goes dull. If you mean "fail" in the catastrophic, saw-needs-repair sense, then I disagree.Not sure what you're talking about. Saws fail all the time.
