"Balance Flex" harness works only for the right-handed person
My 327P5x saw works fine, but the harness is a problem. Pictures in the owner's manual (e.g., page 15) show the saw held on the right side of the body with the right hand on the throttle button and the left hand maneuvering the saw. However....the "balance flex" harness works only for the opposite, the saw on the left side with the left hand on the throttle and the right hand on the pole. In other words, the harness is designed for only right-handed persons and there is no adjustment for those who are left handed. I have made a sling such as is shown in the owner's manual, but anyone purchasing this product should be aware of the non-reversible nature of the harness provided.

A Quality Tree-trimming tool
This pole-saw started and ran, out of the box, exactly as described in the accompanying literature. I used this tool to clear overhanging and protruding brush and limbs from roadways on my property. Idling was excellent and smooth. Acceleration to full cutting speed and power was rapid and responsive. I plan to use this tool this fall to prune fruit trees and fully expect the same quality results. I would recommend this tool to anyone needing a quality tree- trimming tool.

Oustanding pole saw
I purchased this product from Lowe's and I never buy anything except Husqvarna and I owned several chain saws and weed eaters that are Husqvarner. This pole saw was just what I knew it would be like if I purchased a quality product. This pole saw cranks real easy and will run in any position and is very easy to operate. I set on my tractor and drive around the trees and cut the limbs out that I want to cut. This is a lot better thatn walking around especiality if you have several trees to trim. I would recommend this product because of the quality and value for the price. I have cut several limbs that were 10 inches in dia. with ease.

The 327P5x Has that extra reach that really comes in handy. Was very comfortable to operate and well balanced. Husqvarna keep up the good work, your the best.

The best polesaw out there! Very efficient!
Great product. Only problems with it is that you need to take your time with cutting or the bar and chain will freeze up. Also over long periods of time the holding weight is tiring. Gas and oil last forever, GREAT ENGINE!!

Very easy to start and handle. The break down makes it easy to transport. I have cut several 12" oak limbs with no problem. I have the 10' bar. The easy start is a must when you are trying to balance and start.
