Good saw for smaller jobs in the garden or limbing in the forest
The saw came with a 16 inch bar, 0.325 pitch, 0.5 Gauge, 66 Drive links completed mounted (965 16 75-01).
Its is a small saw which is easy to handle. The tilted upper handle helps to hold it in natural position. The rear handle has a grey inlay making handling even better.
The bar is attached with one screw (through the clutch cover) to the saw body. For this small saw it is ok. The upper cover can be removed with quick-release holders, a nice feature in this price class.
The engine starts easy with some pulls.
Cutting in different positions goes easy and with the safety chain the saw comes with its also safe.
My friend uses this saw for occasional firewood cutting and felling of minor trees. Bigger trees we fell together with my bigger Husky 61.
Allover I recommend this saw for occational users which are not trained on chain saws. But as all chain saws it must be handled with respect, not with fear.

A nice lite chainsaw with a 16" Bar
Wow-This is really a nice lite saw with a lot of punch for a 16" Bar. I love all the special features too, like the see thru fuel gauge on the end, the easily removable top cover, and the one bar nut brake/ clutch cover, easy access for chain changes. Husqvarna you have made another wonderful product, Thanks again.

easy to start
easy to start at first no problems 3 tank fuels later hard to start might be flooded or long use, bolts loosened up had to tighten, clogged up air easy.

Best saw so far!
once you read the directions it starts every time. Took down 12 pines this weekend for the saws first use. Worked flawlessly! I use to buy the Stihl saws, never again. This performs better and the parts are cheaper! I love this saw!!

Amazing saw for the money
I cut firewood professionally 35 year ago, now I do it for fun home heating. My old 16" trimmer saw died. I bought this unit. It's super easy to maintain, starts great and has lots of power.

Fist chainsaw, I've cut down 3 tree's so far and this is a joy to use. I bought from a local shop and have used and stored it like they said and have had no issues with it what so ever. It starts within a couple pull and once it's going, it will go strong until you need to put gas in it. Can't say enough good things about this saw!
