    Battery climbing saws....husky or stihl??

    I have used husky about 2 years now and I like it a lot. Pruning goes with out any problems and some small fells too. There are still some problems too. About after a year we needed to replace whole saw after it didn't work any more. We found out that it got moisture inside and that broke electronics. Second problem is cold weather. In Finland winters are below -5 usually every day and that makes battery's last about 3 cuts. It helps little bit if you store battery's in cars warm side (cabinet) on workdays. After -15 saw usually doesn't even start, it just shows a red blinking light. No experience about Stihl.

    What's on your bench today?

    HVA 540 had really bad oiling for the bar. I took saw a little bit apart and found this. Oil pump intake and output tube was splitted in half. Having exactly same issue with second 540 so it's next on the line.

    Using Sena S20 on protos. Works well but connections between unit and dock needs litle care sometimes. But 10r is probably best choice
