Re: Looking for advice - Chainsaws #1 Nov 10, 2005 11:03 am
For the record, Jonsered is made by Husky, but is the lower end of their consumer grade saws. The longevity and robustness of the engines are not he same, which of course is reflected in the price. Also, alot of consumer chainsaws come with rather amitious bar lengths. EG: My Craftsman 42cc (a 42cc Craftsman is no where close in power or torque to a pro grade 35-45cc) came with an 18" bar and an "ok" chain. By dropping to a 15" bar and a better grade chain dramatically improves performance. This is information given to me by our Local Authorized Stihl/Husky/Jonsered dealer. Instead of trying to sell me the New farm Boss wich I coveted or a Husky XPR, they offered to "upgrade" my Craftsman...now that's service.
