I thought it was 2008. Most places didn't have 390 until 2007 at the earliest.

Dont know if I want to jump up to that weight PHO just for 1mm more stroke.   Yep it has gotton like that for my ole azz now. Freaking saws getting heavy to haul around in the woods down on my land.

Went through the new to me 385 and all checked out. Only thing missing was right side fastener for brake handle. Found one in my misc bin. I quit pulling it over after it hit 150psi. Looks like new inside looking through plug hole. So didnt pull muffler.
Being I only have small dry ash on hand to test for now. 3/8 8T and 16" LOL

Husqvarna dealer from GA Onan18 says

Between the 385 and 390 I would pick the 385 all day every day. The timing numbers and port shapes were almost perfect from the factory because it was designed from day one to be what it was. The 390 was more of an afterthought "We have to get in the 90cc class to compete with the MS 660" so it is essentially a factory big bore and they had to compromise on the port shapes to make room for the larger piston. Also, while 1mm does not sound like much, the 390 piston is MUCH HEAVIER than the 385 piston. As a result the 390 is known for killing cranks, in as little as one year in commercial duty even with decent care and good oil.

Got these ready for sat morning if able to get out. Icing pretty bad and dropped 26 degrees since morning.  Was called for for a guy needing help with a big ash down.

Finally got the recall for the cutting.  So I could test the 385 and 505 out.
Tree I started on 32" didnt reach across last 2 cuts.  Pretty wood. Was told ash but I dont know about that. 2nd tree was ash.

I worked on 1st tree and after I finished mine up. Went and finished the other tree for the other guy that was cutting with 272 036.  He said you cut little faster then I am used too. He was still on the small end.  :P

385 stock impressed me with 32" full skip. 505 had 28" full comp and it to impressed me being on its first tanks since topend rebuild.   

I came to the conclusion I will be able to sell the 385 in the future soon.  505 does all I need done.
