HUSQVARNA 395 XP®
What a saw !!!
I have been using Huskys for over 30 years, in fact I still have my old 285 CD saw that has cut hundreds of cords plus I have lumbered with it as well....The 395 XP reminds me of that saw as the power is there!...plus it is smoother and is much quieter.....this saw is not for beginners!!.....it is extremely powerful and will blaze through the wood....it's a beast !!!.....but for the regular saw and professional users out there....ENJOY !!!

A ”hot” saw !
Originally, to upgrade from our 30cc echo, I purchased a refurbished Husqvarna 445 on ebay for $200, then ordered a longer bar for it, from a Jonsered dealer. While there, it miraculously happened without preplanning to do so, that I evenly traded the 445 away for a used 395xp, that he had sitting there. A former owner had traded it in for a smaller and lighter Jonsered. Neither I nor the dealer even knew how many cc's it had, until getting back home, and I was flabbergasted !
2 years later, I discovered that this particular saw is heavily ported. Not only is this machine a high performance saw, it is also on steroids ! heh heh heh
With a properly sharpened chain, it flies thru wood !

This is a very powerful saw. I run it for 4 or 5 hours a day 2 and 3 times a week. The saw doesn't miss a beat. I run a 44 inch bar and cut red, white and water oak. If the chain is sharp you can cut 40 plus inch logs all day long with no problem. This saw is made to work.

If God needed a saw, this would be it!
I bought this saw early March 2013 from Pantano power Equipment in Manalapan, NJ. The saw came with a 32" bar and full skip square ground chisel chain. Pantano also threw in a 20 inch bar which was awesome! The first tree I had to cut up with this saw was a 42" red oak that was knocked down by Hurricane Sandy. During the first tank of gas, I was going easy with the saw. The second time I filled the gas tank, ( I only use Husky's bottled 95 octane pre-mix fuel) I let this saw come alive and it ate the whole tree up. I am so impressed with the power of this saw. It's in a different league than my Ms 660. I was able to buck the tree in 10ft. lengths and the cuts were as smooth as a baby's bottom. Before I purchased this saw, I was using my Ms 660 to do the big jobs, but I had to clean it's air filter all the time. I realized after using this saw, I did not have to keep cleaning the air filter, and the power difference is very noticeable. The 395xp is the best/baddest saw in my collection. Don't get me wrong, I love my Ms660, but the 395xp is a couple notches better than the Ms660. From now on, big tree jobs are taken cared of by my 395xp, and 576xp!!!

For tackling the bigger jobs this is our workhorse, we run from 28 to 36" bars on this saw and it has plenty of power to handle everything we have attempted to cut. Largest tree to date was 6' 4" in diameter; not a problem, once notched saw did not hesitate once in dropping it. We do use a spray lube on the longer bars, where there seems to be some difficulty with the oil getting to the end. and also grease the tip every third or forth time the saw is removed from the tree. To date no problems!

I bought this saw to share the workload with my 372 doing landclearing and firewood on my farm. For the first couple weeks i was very pleased with it then it developed a problem where it would run good for 10-15min then sputter out and quit. Then it needs to sit for 30+ min before it will fire up again. It does this consistently. I took it to a local dealer and they though they fixed it but the problem remains. Its back in the shop now and they really dont know what the problem is. I bought it from a dealer online in new jersey and i dont know if ill have to bring it back there if the local shop cant get it going. The six month warrantee is running out and ive hardly gotten to use it.

Big. Tough. Saw.
I bought this saw to fell some bigger trees. I've had to turn down a couple jobs because I didn't have a saw big enough.
For my big saws I have a 365SP and a 372XP. They're great saws, but there's a limit to every saw and you should use a saw correctly sized for the job.
The power from this saw will easily pull a 5-foot bar and chain through any wood you need it to. It's a bit heavy, and the kickback can be nasty if you're not properly trained to deal with it, but if you need a big, powerful, reliable saw, this is a pretty dang good one. Great if you've got a chainsaw mill too.
I've had a tree roll on top of this saw and it survived with only a couple issues. A new recoil and full-wrap handle and she's good as new.
