Husqvarna Top Handle for Carving

Recommended Posts

I am looking to convert a Husqvarna Top Handle saw for carving, I have had a go at converting the T435 over to a 1/4" drive sprocket - with no success. So I have the following questions...

 

1. Does anyone know if it is possible to convert the new T540XP over to 1/4"?

2. Does anyone know where I can get a 334t, 335, 335XPT or 336 (Oregon makes a 1/4" kit for these)?

3. Does anyone know if you can convert the new T536Li/if it's any good?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Nick.

3. Not sure if you can convert, but with the nature of chainsaw carving I would think you would just eat through the batteries too quick to make it viable surely

 

 

 

Until I looked at pricing - I had considered rotating 2 batteries as per battery impact drivers... then I saw that you buy them separately at £100 each... I've now ruled out option 3!

Several Husqvarna XP saws have rim drive and can be converted.

The T536Li is very front heavy and my forearm tired quickly.

 

Love the 536Li with a .043 dime cannon bar.

 

The charger can keep up with detailing if you have two batteries.

Useful information thanks rooster, any chance these Husky XP saws you mention are Top Handle?

Why do you want to use a top handled saw for carving?

 

Indeed why, I have a ms 150 and ever use it over my echo cs 281 Wes with a 14 ins QTip bar :confused1:
