JimR, you have made some very good comments!! You and i have very familiar likes in the 372 xp and the 346 xp. For anyone out there who reads this and is looking for a professional grade (machine that can last you a lifetime!!) look no further than a 346 or 372 husqvarna. The 346 is lightweight and doesn't wear a person out to carry it all day, and will cut up to 20" trees no problem, the 372 is even more of a beast and can do just about anything, but weighs about 3 lbs + more. --thanks for reading
Thanks for the comments. I will still today stand by those statements as I am still enjoying both of these saws immensly. Today I was sworn in as the Town Tree Warden. I inherited a Husky 395XP with a 36" bar. Come Springtime I will go out to see how a saw this big cuts. I've never used a Husky this big. I did own a McCulloh Pro Mac 650 with a 32 inch bar a few years back.

You'll like it a lot for bigger stuff . They have tons of torque . If you haven't already done so , see if you can get full skip chain for that bar . It'll help clearing the chips out of the cut that sometimes can be anproblem with longer bars .

Exclamation Re: New Husqvarna Chainsaw

Buyer beware!!
I bought a new Huskvarna chainsaw from my local dealer who has been great to deal with. I normally run all stihl equipment but was told that huskvarna made a great chainsaw. So, 700 dollars later I walked out with my saw. It ran terrible from the beginning so I brought it back in after 2 hours of use. The dealer did something through a computer diagnostic and gave it back It ran a little better, but after 13 hours, it seized. Huskvarna wouldn't warranty it because they said I used bad fuel. Now, I was the only one who used it, and have been mixing fuel for my equipment for 20 years. If that was the case, my concrete saw would have seized as well. The dealer went to bat for me knowing how I care for my equipment, but they still refused to warranty it. The dealer has been kind enough to do the labour part for free, but I am paying for the parts. Please keep this in mind when considering your next saw

Husqvarna 395xp. Anyone using a bigger bar than the 36"? The manufacturer recommends 36" for maximum lengh. I have an Alaskan chainsaw and was hoping to use a 44" or 48".

you have a mill? you don't use the end of the bar when it is on it. so i'm thinking it would work.

Yes I have the Alaskan Chainsaw Mill. That makes sense, about not using the end of the bar.

Kind of way late here . But your 395 should pull 48 fairly well . Make sure you use a 7t drive sprocket ,and look into a Grandberg ( sp ) aux oiler for it .
I'm fairly certain the only reason they don't mention a bigger bar is that they ( husky ) don't make anything bigger for that saw in .375 .
Mine pulls fine with an 8t ,36" bar . But cross cuts are way easier than rips .

I have a brand new 450 and haven't ever used it. Got it as a Christmas present 2015. Got it out the other day and it will not start. Its only had the fuel that was purchased with the saw that comes in the can that is already premixed and is supposed to be good for many years as is stated on the can. Any ideas what may be wrong? Thanks in advance!
