Recommended Posts

Won the auction for the saw on eBay, it's brand new, looks genuine to me but been reading online, apparently there's allot of fakes, what do you guys think ? And what is the best way to tell ?

Forgot to add not payed for it yet going to pick it up this afternoon.

Whip top cover off and get a butchers at cylinder & casings, look for husky branding / casting marks. Know nowt about huskys so cant say much more.
If you shout loud enough “sir stubby” should be along for a husky gospel verse for ya
Hope its the real deal for ya, looks a nice thing.

Clearly marked Made in Brazil. So not really a Swedish Husqvarna however price may make yr mind up but doubt it's crap. VW carried on making VW Beetles in Brazil so engineering standard should be good. K

Something about it says fake to me  , The plastics look too sharp the etching on the number plate looks wrong , not like on mine anyway and Brazil ?   Also the back handle/tank should be translucent . I could be wrong . @adw .

Perhaps this might help:

ETA - if you want new stock 395's(until they are gone), you pretty much have to go with a Brazilian one. They stopped making them in Swedland a while back now. At least that's what my local dealer claims. And the date stamp on that 395 you have there is 2018. So it isn't NOS. If it's real... ;)

Looks genuine to me, for the last two years the 390/395 and 3120 have been produced in Brazil, they are still produced there but cannot be exported to Europe as they no longer meet the emissions laws, by producing them there they can more easily feed the non emission caring countries, so to conclude the saw is genuine.

Yeah, but what does ADW know:011:;)

Just joking, if he says it is fine then I wouldn't worry as it will be fine!
