365 is ideal.

Bargain price so make sure its a genuine and check the serial number etc as the first 2 numbers denote year of manufacture.

 

Will do mate if he ever gets intouch cheers atb

I was looking for a similar saw myself and ended up getting a Husky 365 at the APF. Brilliant saw, very light and easy to use! Go for it!!!

only looked at the 365 on you tube and it looks like a big lump I'm after some thing the same size as the ms250 but a husqvarna

 

Hi

 

There is no comparison between a MS250 & a Husky 365, OK the 250 cuts well on a short bar and its handy when climbing but the 365 is a much better saw for firewood cutting in every aspect.

 

If you want a smaller Husqvarna then a 555 maybe an option but the 365 is only about 25 quid more.

 

I would avoid MS261s - they seem to have more than a fair share of reliability problems.

Saying you want to run a 16" bar suggests you're cutting bigger rounds. But if you like the MS250 at work, have a look at what you can do with an MS251 on 14", plus it's nice music.

...and are large and clumcy for a 50cc saw, while the 550xp etc are really neat and well handling saws.

Well herd nothing from the guy with the 365 but I think the 365 or the 550 will be my next saw I was looking at the 550 with auto tune it also plugs in to a comp and gives a read out of hours of use ect so don't no if it can be worked on and serviced at home .

Maybe The old husky 162se I'm rebuilding at the moment could be the missing mid range saw I'm looking for time will tell :thumbup1:
