" so far so good. ok - if you are used to a gas powered saw, this one initially sounds like a toy. BUT - it does the job. a full cord of wood later the saw was still buzzin along nicely. I'll have another cord or less to cut this year yet - and going forward up to 3 per year. fingers crossed it holds up as well as the 2 stroke saws I've previously owned. fatigue is less; and I honestly forgot to use the hearing protection so maybe its not much more than a table saw or a chop saw?? I'll come back in a year or two to give it 5 stars if it lasts like the gas powered saws did - but for now - only 4 stars but no issues whatsoever. "

A good, misunderstood saw.

" We own a farm and multiple other chainsaws. I bought this for more use at home but now using more at the farm as well. Good power with a low noise level which is good if you're developing tinnitus issues.
As another reviewer points out, "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!" This even got me at first as the chain brake on this saw takes a lot of force to disengage, it feel totally different then other saws including the gas Husky that I also have. Don't do this and you will believe the saw is defective.
The only other fault with the saw is with it's one bolt bar clamp setup sometimes the bar can move and let the chain jump off the bar. It mostly happens if you are delimbing and bounce the bar between limbs. Learn not to do that and you're good. "

disappointed in Husqvarna electric chain saw

,
September 8, 2011
By iguana
from Indianapolis
" 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. "

Not a Toy

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