Which small husqvarna saw?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I am a landscaper, I get a lot of firewood to chop, looking for a new small saw to help with that as well use for smaller pruning etc to compliment my bigger saw when it is unnecessary. 

I’ve looked at the husqvarna 120 Mkii or the 135. (I know the 135 mkii is out end of March)

Is the 120 a good saw and do the job? Or is it too lightweight for even firewood and pruning? Or should I pay the extra and wait for the 135mkii?

 

Thanks.

George

Hi George

Personally I had one small Husqvarna, and never again, others may have had better luck

with them, they are made to a price point, have little in common with their bigger siblings

at all.

 

Have you  considered other brands, Makita / Dolmar, Echo, Stihl, much tougher saws,

am new on here, was looking for a saw a week ago, until I met a local, so got one he 

had for sale.

I've got a 135 which I use for small thinning/veg clearance work. It's more pleasant to use all day than a full size saw like a 357.  If you treat them as what they are, ie a small saw for appropriate work, then they are great.

I have a stihl already, a bigger saw, had for 2 years and it’s been great. No faults.
I just wanted a smaller saw for quick limbing at work etc / smaller log cutting which was lighter and easier on my back etc.
I Fancied a husky maybe their branding appealed to me, but I would go for another stihl too as my local dealer is stihl.
Just wanted a second opinion of husky.
Thanks again

You can still buy a 346xp new. I picked one up a couple of months ago, they still have limited stock in Germany. Worked out about £600 delivered.
