Jonsered 2171 or Husky 371
« on: December 23, 2011, 01:56:38 pm »
What would you prefer? Jonsered 2171 or a Husky 371 with high top and clamp style intake?

 Have a trade offer for my 2171 for a 371. I just dont know if I want a 371 with new seals, carb rebuild etc. I know my 2171 is solid and ready to go.

He likes red saws and not fond of the orange mixing in with his red ones. Me I dont care one way or another.

Hard to prefer either for me as they are so much alike. I've got a couple of each. Some guys are pretty hung up on the handle angle of one or the other. I go back and forth between Jonnys and Huskys all the time and never really notice it.

Trade wise, why trade a known quanity for an unknown one? Plus you should have at least one Red on the roster.  :D

Finding used parts will always favor the Husky, as it outsells the Jonny 10 to 1; even in an area like mine where Jonsered still has some market presence. In some areas Jonsered is practically non existent, making it almost impossible to fnd use parts.

I prefer running the 2171. Looking for parts is easier for husky for sure.

Can you put the handle from a red saw onto and orange saw?

Or is the angle of the mount on the chain side different?
