HUSQVARNA 395 XP®
new purchase for construction background homeowner
I recently purchased a 395XP with the 24" bar along with a 36" bar. I am a"mature" homowner with a 3.5 acre somewhat rural property with extensive construction, engineering, repair and chainsaw experience including my own Oregon professional chain sharpener. This is the most powerful chainsaw I have owned, the 5th in my lifetime, purchased to augment my 2 other medium sized saws for larger diameter felling and firewood sawing.So far it has had limited use 5 hours or so but it is a REAL performer, cutting through 12-24" and larger material like a knife through butter. My neighbor, a professional logger uses a 390XP regularly with good results and VERY efficient cutting. .Wth the relatively premium price over mid size saws I am hoping the durability is as good as the initial performance. I was suprised to find that it only has a 6 month warrenty, understandable for daily professional use but not for occasional use. Also disappointed to get no response from Husqvarna in my request for the correct manual for a 395XP as the one provided is for a 385 and 390XP(6/30 now 7/21). This is my 1st Husqvarna after having Mc Cullough(40+ years ago)then Shindaiwa (20 years old)and Stihl (12 years) that I still use.

An amazing saw
I am actually an owner of the 394xp (older model). The way husqvarna builds there saws are amazing. They are durable and have such simplistic design that even a person with little small engine mechanical abilities can work on this saw. I have down a complete rebuild on my saw and i know i have an extra 10 years on the saw now.

Best saw in my collection
I bought this saw three years ago for my tree trimming/removal business and it is by far the most reliable saw that i own. From my own findings it requires less maintenance as well because of its size. if you blow the air cleaner out and take a wire brush to the spark plug before every use (and keep the coil clean) this saw should last you a very, very long time and run like the day you bought it without fail. I also purchased a bench mounted saw chain grinder for around 350 bucks so with my 395xp running great and cutting to its optimal performance I can cut faster and more efficiently than any of my friends with 60-70cc class saws by a long shot! I can cut 2-3 rounds to their 1... AWESOME SAW!

I have had this for 2 years and still going strong with no issue at all. Possibly going to upgrade the blade for more cutting surface.

What a beast!
We got this saw last year for cutting sturgeon spearing holes through the ice. We put a 42" bar on it, ice chain, and some modifications to lubericate the bar. This thing is a beast, works great!

The 395 XP is replacing the aging 2101XP. The saw is well balanced,powerful and a lot lighter then the old faithful 2101XP. I have no problems with the 395XP its a great saw and i would recommend it to anyone.

small but mighty
we had a big swap willow fall over our dock at the cottage we are on an island so this was a big nightmare for us. This tree main truck was 93 inch around this chainsw cut though the tree like butter very impressed. I bought my hubby a Yard machine 2 years agao and it broke after using it 5 times and the part is not available so it is a piece of junk now. But your chainsaw was by far the best thing we have ever used to date. Good Good.

A number of large oak trees have fallen over the years on a cattle ranch I manage in Northern California, usually we only cut the limbs off and leave the truck behind.
This last winter was really wet and windy and we had another monster oak fall, I told my son I'm tired of leaving big tree trunks so I purchased a Husky 395xp to cut through 3-4 ft diameter wood. Bottom line, I have been extremely happy with the 395xp both with tons of power and easy to handle for a big saw, no more big trunks to rot away. Would highly recommend.
