HUSQVARNA 395 XP®
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.

I just got done rebuilding/restoring a Husqvarna 394xp. This was my first 90cc class saw that I have owned from Husqvarna. This saw was very well built and is proceeded by the 395xp it is a very similar saw so I figured I could leave the review for the 395xp after having cut with one.
The saw has plenty of power I buried a 28" full compliment chain in 40" plus oak with out the saw even wincing. I use this saw on any large project that I need a big saw on. It is always ready to work and balances well. I do not do this for a living but I have no doubt that if you need a saw to work hard all day on large wood this would be your saw. I have had zero issues with this saw since I restored it.
When I cut with the 395xp it was a tad slower then my 394 and felt like it had slightly less power but I did a few things to the 394xp to really wake it up. I bet if I were able to spend a few days tweaking the saw to my liking I could have really had that thing cutting great. It has plenty of power and is fairly light for the amount of power it produces.
It can be a little intimidating purchasing a saw over $1000.00 but it is worth every penny and will reliably serve you for years of hard abuse. I highly recommend this large saw for all your big cutting needs.
