New Husqvarna T525

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if there is any feedback from users of the new T525?

 

There is a bit of info about the specs on our web site, link here Husqvarna T525  but some hands on use would be good. All I can say is it is heavier by 350g ish than the Echo Cs2511TES, same power on paper but feels more robust. The bar is more of a carving bar with a narrower tip than in the picture and the chain is a 1/4" 1.1mm H00 chain. It isnt the same size chain as the Stihl MS150.

Interested to hear some views as well. Is there a pic available of the bar? Hopefully its like the pointy 150.

I’ve got one. Seems very well built and in the hand feels much nicer than the echo. Can’t compare to a 150 as I haven’t ever used one but do have a battery Stihl top handle but they are different purposes. The husky took a few tanks to loosen up but now it is a very strong saw with good low end torque. Had a race with my mates 2511 today and it beat it although the echo was slightly duller than the husky so not a fair comparison.

I’m happy with it but long term we shall see

Thanks for the feedback, if it's better than the echo it well be a very popuar saw!

A lot of people who have seen the saw comment how big it is compared to the echo and I’ve got echo strimmers and I’ve never spent a penny on them so the reliability on echos side should be there. Will find this thread and update it once the saw is a month old it’s already took 70% of the work from my 200t.

Even at 350g heavier? That's no small amount.
