    husqvarna siezed

    Hey, new to the forum looking for some advice, i brought my 365 special into a hire shop/husqvarna dealer for a new chain, without asking me he ground out the oregon bar to suit a stihl chain, i wasn't to happy about it but he said its normal he dose it all the time and he has a special disc to do it. Has anyone heard of this? is it ok? Now the engine has sized after not much use since then, He says it over heated from being worked too hard, said the clutch was black and the barrel and piston seized, and wants me to pay for the repairs. It was defiantly not being worked hard and he checked the fuel himself and said the mix was perfect. What do you think?
  2. So, looked and then got a job where a big saw is needed. Have a husqvarna 576xp with a 24" blade and to be fair it always been enough. 48" by the time you go round both sides:thumbup: Any way this time it's not gonna cut the mustard. There are half dozen dead horses chestnut trees to come down. All my ground saws are Husqvarna so I enquired about the395xp but the max bar length is only 28" wtf. The stihl equivalent is the 660 and can come with 36" bar Didn't really want the 3120 seems to be over kill for what I want. Don't get why the 395 can only be brought with a maximum 28" bar? Never used a stihl ground saw except the 260. How does the 660 fair to the big huskies.

    Spark arrestor ????

    Hey guys, I have recently been handed down a husqvarna 141 saw. Nice little saw but I was using it yesterday and after around 30 mins of using, it decided to stop idling and cut out. I can get the saw started but as soon as I stop revving the saw cuts out. The husky does need a general service and I have just ordered a servicing kit. I have been advised that the problem could lie with the spark arrestor screen. Could this be the problem ??? Advise please I will take out a and clean the screen anyway

    Advice on a purchase

    Hey guys I have recently bought a wood burning stove to run my heating, which means I now have to keep well on top of the firewood. I need to purchase a decent saw that'll be hassle free for me. I'm looking at getting something with a 16-20" bar. I want a good all rounder !! Obvious choices would be husky or stihl. Having done a bit of research on YouTube I can't really seperate the two, only that Husky seem to go through timber about a second quicker on average and seem to be more well balanced than the stihl......ADVISE PLEASE

    Husqvarna 560xp

    Tried out the new husky 560xp today on a days demo from Daniel @ chippetech in Suffolk. And have to say what a saw. I run a 6month old 357xp and the new 560 kicked but. Very impressed now need to save up to get one. Real aggressive styling to match the power of the little rocket will just kill everything I threw at it. Was down at my wood shed and tried with loads of different wood. Clutch didn't kick in once!! Daniel is doing day demo on it for a while so give him a ring. Be warned you will want one!!!

    New saw advise

    Hi guys Story goes.... Grew up with a husky 136 as a present from dad about 10 years ago for use on the farm and i loved it and still do. To this day it still gets me out of a scrape or two and it taught me a world of knowledge about maintainence. Now without starting the inevitable Stihl v Husky debate i know huskys and love em. Without geting too angry i had my 345 i bought 2 years ago stolen Yesterday i enjoyed maintaining it and i liked it allot i probably on average used it once a week for felling right through to cutting firewood etc My question is this WHAT SAW TO REPLACE??? the 346xp or bigger My friend who just bought a 346xpg with the silly brake thing likes the saw but i fancy some thing a bit more professional as i expect it to last me a lifetime. Having said that dont want to re-mortgage just spend money on a good saw. Hope u all understand and thanks for you time, advice ect Marcus
