Wears out chain quickly. Poor oil distribution to chain.
This is a great saw for getting into tight spots when cutting brush and limbs. It starts easy, has enough power, and cuts fast. My only complaint is that the oil does not enter the chain at the proper point in the bar. An attempt has been made to cross the oil over from the pump entry side to the entry hole in the other side of the bar, but most of the oil does not get to the inside of the chain. Thus, chain wear is rapid.

I have a number of Husqvarna products and I am happy with them all. While looking for a pole saw, I read the specs of the Husqvarna product. I am a retired engineer, but still have an engineering approach to life. The spec. listed the machine power in horsepower, the fuel capacity in fluid ounces and the fuel consumption in gm/kwh. After some calculation, I arrived at the fact that the saw would run for approximately 55 minutes at maximum power. Why use such an unprofessional and confusing mix of units? Why not state the approximate run time for a full tank of fuel?

Easy to use
It was much easier to use than I thought, very light weight and balanced. I took care of all the branches I wanted to cut over my fences in one afternoon!

Its a little heavy
Don't get me wrong, I love Husqvarna, And this pole saw is really good, it is powerful. The only fault i could find with it, is it gets a little heavy holding it up in the air, or holding it straight out.

Just got it
I just bought this pole saw as a clearance item at at Sutherlands and it wouldn't start. Took it to a dealer and a fuel line had come loose. They had it fixed in a short time and the service was excellent.
