Pros – One of the biggest problems people have with chainsaws is that they are incredibly heavy and wear you out just after a short while. With this Husqvarna model you can continue sawing throughout all of your projects without being fatigued at all. The frame is lightweight which lessens your strain, and the anti-vibration system makes it so much easier on your arms and shoulders!
While you’re using this chainsaw you can easily tell when the fuel gets low thanks to the fuel indicator and you never have to worry about polluting the air with this gas chainsaw thanks to the special engine that utilizes X-Torq technology!
Cons – Overall this is definitely a lightweight workhorse though starting it up can be a little difficult at times. During the warmer months you can start it no problem however as soon as it gets cold you need to prime it a lot and attempt to start it multiple times. This is just a minor issue however and the overall ease of use makes this chainsaw well worth the money.
