Husky saws 390XP, 395XP, 3120XP to be discontinued?

Recommended Posts

Just a wee word on this, I was talking to a Stihl dealer in Germany the other day and he said they have no issues getting 880's in stock still. Yes, they aren't compliant with the latest European emissions laws however as they sell so few of them, the German government deemed it unnecessary to ban their sale.
So no panic, it might be more awkward but you can still get one shipped to the UK. 
 

Spoke to a stihl techie yesterday.
About the 880s future.
He said they were only selling off stock now. Nothing to replace it.
I'm very worried.

Hmm, strange. 

As far as he was aware basically nothing was changing in the supply and sale of them in Germany. Presumably they're still making them in smaller batches in Germany? 

It wouldn't be the first time the UK has gone really strict with an EU law nobody else bothers with, and blames it on the EU...

Thats interesting news about stihl. I decided not to take the risk and from what I gather I have bought the second last 395xp that Listers had.

Yes it was. I believe they have been built down there for a number of years.
