Husqvarna combi cans finally here!!

Recommended Posts

Unless I'm missing something i can't work out why you'd buy one? The old ones were atrocious, these look no better and they're not even transparent so you can't see how much fuel you have? The stihl and Oregon ones have been around for years with no problems, stick with what works!

They are better than the old ones in as much as the new ones don't fall over as they have a more stable base and you can see how much is in them through the transparent strip that goes from top to bottom .

Haven't had a nozzle crack yet... but there's still time. I do like being able to decant both fuel, (Aspen) and bar oil into the new style, without having to prop the can at an angle, so the funnel does fall the one side.

There used to be a funnel just for the old cans that would sit at the correct attitude when fitted . Got one somewhere .....

Not much good for filing afterwards. But retrieval is easy. Either just invert the can or Blu Tac on the end of a thin stuck should get it.

The Stihl and Oregon ones don't fit in my Echo saws, the Stihl not at all, and the Oregon is tight, making it a pain to get back out again.

Mine is doing fine but the ones the lads use knackered just as fast as the Stihl ones they had before them. They are half the price of the Stihls though! :thumbup::thumbup:
