Jeremy Coon: Huskqys rip as far as the saws go. I have been cutting firewood for 18
years for a living in the backwoods of Oregon. I like Husqys design better,
except with the pole saws I use for trimming peoples tree limbs. The Stihl
had a way better design than husqy, but the husqy chainsaws just seem to be
a little tighter design and easier to swing around when you are bumping
knots. If you are cutting big Timber all day maybe the Stihls are better,
but as Im cutting 3 cords of firewood a day alone, I like the dependability
and speed of the husqy.
BIG DALE: i work for a tree lopper which uses stihl pro saws and they are constantly
in the shop. maybe bad mechanics working on them but they are constantly
being fixed. i have a husqvarna 365 special that i have abused terribly and
it is as good as new. i didn't clean it for the fist three years i owned
it, i know better now but the point is it cut through dry seasoned jarrah
and white gum approx 20-25 ton a year for 8 years now and the piston and
cylinder look spotless, not a scratch or scoriing anywhere. i aslo have a
3120 and 394 that i use regularly and have found them to be far more
reliable than the stihl equivalent my boss uses. just my experience anyway.
maybe it is the extremly hard australian wood that the stihl saw doesn't
like because of the dust and poor stihl filtration setup.
fireworks mad 123: Stihl are better because huskys burn out quicker because they are on higher
revs and I would pick stihl over husky enny day
emilio8381: Husqvarna rulez,the best
ghostrider 115: Husqvarna chain saws are great chain saw brand
violablues67: I recently went to a dealer who sells husky/jonsered, sthil and ecco. I got
there and a recent power outage caused problems with their computer system
and the salesman was busy trying to get it up and running. So I ended up
dealing with one of the mechanics. I cut 20 chords a year. Extract it from
the forest by tractor. I cut from twig trees to 4ft diameter trees. Elm,
maple and cherry mostly. I was looking for a 70cc chainsaw to supplement my
555 husky (which has been a great saw so far). After insuring that i wanted
professional grade he steered me towards the husky section. I am familiar
with the 2171, my father had one for a couple months and it was stolen. He
then bought a 2163 and has had it for over 10 years and swears by it. my
only experience with sthil was a farmboss that never started and ended up
thrown into a field and left for dead. anyway the mechanic told me to stay
away from the new 562xp and the ms 441. both have had problems and are
constantly in shop or covered by warranty. the man works on all models
every day and told me that the 372 /2172 is the best bang for the buck.
both brand's pro saws are top of the line but when it comes to balance,
usability and endurance. the model wins.
Matthew Jacobus: Husky's rule stihl's drool lol !!
STEVIE G: husky all the way
Melissa Helton: Everyone tells me stihl is more durable, then why does Husqvarna offer a 4
year warranty to stihl's 2?
Ryan96se: Never fails. Do the Stihl owners always have to start right away with
Bashing anything other than a Stihl? Kind of immature. I'm not against
Stihl equipment but find some Stihl owners to be kind of "snooty" for the
lack of a better term.
First off let me say that I realize some of you have had a bad experience
which directed you to purchasing a Sithl and I don't blame you. I would've
probably done the same. On the other side of the coin, I have run in those
who had a bad experience with their Stihl product and went with Husqvarna.
Anyone can get a defective unit or have a bad experience.
Yes we all know Stihls are good...bla..bla..bla. I think they're one hell
of a saw too but for most who just need to clear their land and don't fell
trees for a living my Husqvarna saw has made me very happy. Stihl /
Husqvarna are the top brands most think of in saws in my neck of the woods
(notice I said my neck of the woods). Now if you really want to degrade a
saw then go knock the Poulan or Chinese saws. In my Opinion I think they
suck but wouldn't give someone down the Rd for it if I saw them using one.
Hey...whatever works for them. If they ask me what is a good saw I would
then volunteer my information.
Most shops in my area sell Stihl and Husqvarna equipment side by side. Talk
to a Stihl owner and you will find that they feel that's a disgrace. Well
maybe someone who drives a Rolls Royce feels like all of our vehicles are
not worthy of pulling up next to theirs at a stop light......(and probably
figure that its a disgrace to even have to stop for a traffic light) but
anyway, you get my point.
I have a Husqvarna 345 16" bar. Fires on 3rd pull, starts on 2nd pull. Runs
like a raped date and purrs like a kitten on the ground. Bet I could go
have lunch at the house come back and it would still be sitting there
Will it last longer than a Stihl? Well.....I think that is relative to
getting the correct model saw for what you need it for. Will an equally
rated Husqvarna saw out-cut a Stihl? Depends on who has the sharper
chain. Will it be as reliable with less issues down the Rd? Maybe / Maybe
Not.....Most of this is influenced by care of the saw and how it is used.
Husqvarna saws can very quickly start getting into the 1,500 dollar range
for their long lasting durable commercial series. They do make high end
saws but for my needs, my saw will last for as long as I care to use it.
Ethanol is the true enemy for any carbureted small engine doesn't matter
what name is on the side of it. Since 2006 I have had to rebuild my
carburetor twice with fuel lines and filter and I now get Gas without
Ethanol from a mom and pop place down the Rd. No more issues. Run the fuel
out when I'm not using it and its reliably available the next time I need
I think both are great saws. I am not prejudiced against either one and
don't feel like I have to condemn everyone, thumb my nose up at anyone or
covert those I come across who have a different saw than mine. Use what
works for you and se safe
Bud Geisewite: What difference does an 8 pin rim make over a 7? Faster or slower chain
StihlDips45: Nothing runs like a stihl! Nice example of cutting speed.. hands down stihl
wins. Just got a oilomatic chain for the ms361.. runs like a champ
Scott Ewing: Both are good brands. I did consider a Husqvarna before I got my STIHL this
week. I just did not think a Husky had what it takes to meet my demanding
hands. When I can take the smallest STIHL saw made and fill a hay wagon to
the brim and make a 120 HP IH tractor groan trying to lug it up a hill;
Please spare me on how Husky is better. My MS170 was stock, all except for
the 16" Picco (Duro?) I put on it. I was chopping 2 to 4 cords or wood a
day. Sometimes I would use the saw daily. I maintained trails with it, tree
lines. You name it, I did it. From tree climbing, to front loader cutting -
frigid temperatures below 0 at about -15 plus windchill factor. Most
Huskies, Echo, and Poulan won't even start. While the other guys were using
starting fluid I was pulling the ripcord. While they were praying for a
sputter I was cutting logs. I read comment after comment on all of these
videos that seem to be biased opinion rather than speaking from experience.
When I can take my 16" 30cc chainsaw to the woods and out chop 25" 50cc
chainsaws, I have little desire to own one of the competitive brands.
That's my 2 cents!
PERPARSON: the better chainsaw is that one wich last longer... its a known fact that
stihl is more reliable and last longer than husqvarna.... speed is nothing
when you need to work 8 hour per day.... 357xp maybe was weaker than 562xp
but hell it was way more reliable than 562...
Milan Novek: 372xp best saw
Steven Rudd: They all are great saws!! Its the man behind the saw is what makes the
saw". ,! Just a point. I've owned still.shwisdowa.husky.ecco. they all are
Ken Warner: been in logging for many year. everything from tree trimming to the family
business logging and sawmills. Husqvarna's cant take the beating. iv had a
stihl for many years without and problems. check out the big big logging
companys and tree trimmers. you don't see husqvarnas on there truck.
CJ Faulkner: 361- 36 seconds, 372- 33 seconds, 562- 36 seconds, and the 440- 30 seconds.
Good comparison! Thanks!
2stroketerror125: I will always be a husky guy. Way better design
MK Tribbie: I love my 372XP - unmodded, runs forever. Easily has cut over 150 trees -
beech, oak, poplar, maple, etc. over the past 10 years - some easily 20"
diameter - lot of tiny ones of course. After felling many were cut trimmed
into logs with same saw then split with the 20 ton splitter or various
mauls. Got a tiny little 136xp about 6 years ago to do the trimming
now...it's a little big to horse around for my 57 yrs now. Only thing I've
changed is the air filter. Maybe do the plug and fuel filter some day...
HORIZON8026: okay i got it ms 361 35 1/2 sec 562 33 seconds 372 36 seconds same bar and
chain in the wood you decide to me its obvious the 562 cuts faster. I have
a 372 xpg that seems to turn faster than the newer 372 XPs it screems and
its stock with unlimited coil early 372
János Radák: Husqvarna, Stihl plate a little mean.
niksechtniks: we use both brands and they work great they are prety damn close to each
other, but us prefure the husky
renenl2: nope. :) Stihl guy here
jason fisher: I own both stihl and Husqvarna both are very good saws the stihls I think
are more reliable but the huskys have better power thru the rpm. both are n
my eyes the best made its kinda a ford chevy kinda thing its what works
best for you.ps ford all the way
brandon wilson: stihl 440 won
kimschlebaum: @ MrTaylorcraft. I think you got the 562 and the 372 swapped. The 562 did
it at 33 sec and the 372 at 36. ;-) Nice comparison btw:-) Regards from
Bill Chambers: Stihl's the rihl dihl! Always!

carpelibrum: How do you keep your hair straight/detangled/ soft enough to make parts
that small while in its natural state? How did you prep your hair for this
style? thanks! Thrashaero: did/do you have an original CX? If so how does the cx2 compare? Christopher Maxwell: thank you, cindy for sharing your info.... should you decide to redo your
video, I might recommend dark coloured tights under the pants to
demonstrate pant removal..., and as 'unglamorous as it is' I might suggest
some 1980's paula poundstone toilet hover/handrail material (during pant
removal) to compliment the Suzanne summers comedic material!-) kindest
