Quality of new husqvarna saws

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


im interested in the quality of the new range of husqvarna saws. I’ve used the old ones for years and have the opportunity to buy older models and see no reason why not. Sure all saws are as good as the chain is sharpened but I’m not convinced that all this electrical carb stuff and usb, WiFi Bluetooth nonsense is actually going to help the saw do a better cut. 


Would be really interested in opinions on new and old saws of any models.

With Husqvarna (and friends have similar with Stihl) I've found the newer saws perform better (rev up faster, are lighter and cut faster) but are slightly less reliable. 


The autotune itself I've never had any issues with and if I had a choice of new saws of any age it would be a 550 or 560 and a 572.
