Husky T540

Recommended Posts

I know you're probably sick to death of being mithered about this saw, but I understand you had a prototype?

 

Do you know if it will accept the Stihl no-spill fuel and oil nozzles?

 

I looked at a Husky 242 for a customer last week and noticed the aperture was too small, like trying to stick a diesel nozzle in an unleaded tank.

 

Surely Husky wouldn't be so small minded? Their combi cans are so awful I threw my last one on the fire!

Im always mithering the husky rep about the saw too so dont worry about asking.:thumbup:

 

Although I havent a clue tbh, sorry.

 

We use the husky combi, yep I know it can be a right PITA, we just never got round to buying a stihl one!

 

Although I also hassled the rep about its faults and apparently they are doing something about it!

 

I doubt I will be able to get hold of one again in the near future well not before they are released, but if I do or can find out I will let you know mate.

 

Im surprised the stihl nozzles dont fit the other saws though, I never knew it was a problem!

 

BTW you will want one as they are a fantastic saw so you might just have to buy a new huskly combi can.:laugh1:

If anyone from Arbtalk wants to preorder the T540 from us then yes, we will sort them out with a free combi can.:001_smile:

 

The one we had had the old style filler caps unlike the one we have on the web site.

Thinking back I'm am fairly sure they were quite small.:sad:

The main problem with the Husky combi can was the non-spill spout was utter crap and the orange plastic was too thick to see how much fuel you had left.

Yep thats what I told the rep, also would be handy if it had a filler on the top so you dont have to stand it at an angle to fill it right up. He thought I was pushing my luck at that one!:laugh1:

 

Apparently they are sorting a transparent one out and I do hope they sort the auto filler as it only works great for about 20 minutes from new.:001_rolleyes:
