Husqvarna Chainsaws

Husqvarna is a Swedish company that has been producing outdoor tools since 1689. In addition to a variety of tractors and mowers, the brand makes more than 40 different chainsaw models, and they include professional saws, top handle saws, all around saws, robust saws, and casual saws.

How do you start your Husqvarna chainsaw? 

Always pay close attention to the starting instructions provided in your owner's manual. In addition, bear in mind that there are a number of conditions that can influence how the chainsaw starts. A good rule of thumb is to remember that when the switch control is placed in the full choke setting, less air and lots of liquid fuel will make its way into the combustion chamber. This creates a greater chance for ignition.

Can you adjust the Husqvarna carburetor?

The Husqvarna chainsaw's carburetor comes with a standard setting that allows for an optimal fuel and air mixture in most operating conditions. Many of these carburetors are designed in such a way that you are only allowed to adjust the engine idle speed on the chainsaw. To find the optimal setting on your chainsaw for your particular intended use, review the Husqvarna instruction manual.

What should you look for when buying a Husqvarna chainsaw?

There are a number of different factors to consider when planning to buy a chainsaw from Husqvarna. Consider the intensity of the activities involved in the work you are doing on your property. Some of the professional Husqvarna models may be overkill if you are planning to use the chainsaw only occasionally. Opting for a smaller model chainsaw will go a long way. Also, consider your comfort level and confidence when using the chainsaw.

How can you determine whether a saw is professional?

The Husqvarna Professional chainsaw models have the XP in their model numbers, such as the 543XP, 372XP, and 3120XP.

How do you add bar and chain oil to chainsaws? 

Check and replace bar and chain oil regularly to reduce friction, help keep the saw from wearing out faster, and to make cutting easier. Be sure to use bar and chain oil, not regular motor oil. Check the owner's manual for standards. Fill the reservoir in this manner.

  • Set the saw on a level surface.
  • Unscrew the cap and pour the oil into the reservoir, making sure not to overfill.
  • Screw the cap back on and wipe down any excess oil.
