"I special ordered one of these from a big box store! Works great! Well balanced and plenty of power! YOU MUST DISENGAGE THE CHAIN BRAKE LEVER IN FRONT OF YOUR LEFT HAND! IT IS STIFF AND REQUIRES SOME FORCE TO MOVE! DO THIS AND THE SAW WILL RUN!"

disappointed in Husqvarna electric chain saw

"I bought the saw several years ago, but used it very little, probably less than 2 hours. When trying to use it recently, it did not work, so I took it to a tool repair shop. The motor appears to be broken, and would cost almost $200 to replace. I bough a Husqvarna because of their reputation for quality. I'm very disappointed."

"This is a high quality electric saw with lots of torque.
Made for doing serious work where noise or gas fumes are a problem.
