Husqvarna Saws
« on: December 24, 2014, 03:49:51 pm »
I've always run Stihl but it sounds like theres a lot of good Huskies too. I'm always ruining across used saws and I'd like to know which are good deals.
Which Huskies are the ones to look for? As I understand, some Jreds share designs? Thanks

I've had a 235 and 141 but they looked like Poulans. I may have been wrong. I've seen specific saws in the 200, 300 and 500 in posts that people like but didn't write them down and can't find all the old threads now. Some we're popular because of port design, some because a larger top end could be fitted, etc. I'm trying to find out which ones these were.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

My favs are the 346xp/353  357xp/359  372xp/365

Add to the two lists above the older 50, 51, 55

Poulan only makes the two smallest cheapest Husks.

Thank yo all for the Great lists! Bluegill, you mentioned only the smallest, cheapest Huskies by Poulan. Who made the larger big box store saws? For example, the 440 or 455 Rancher? I see those everywhere.

I read somewhere that Poulan and Husky are no longer affiliated? Thanks again everyone!!

wik = Poulan was originally an independent American company based in Shreveport, Louisiana, founded as Poulan Saw Co. in 1912 by chainsaw pioneer Claude Poulan. Purchased in late fifties or early sixties by the Beaird Company, also of Shreveport, it was known as Beaird-Poulan. The company was acquired by Emerson Electric in 1972, and was purchased by Electrolux several years later.

1978 - Electrolux acquired Husqvarna

2006 - On its own feet husky was spun off by Electrolux.

 2006 Electrolux spun off Husqvarna AB into its own company, with Poulan nested beneath.
