Visible fuel level
The fuel tank is transparent, so you can see how much fuel is left.
Makes starting easier by removing air from the carburetor and fuel system.
The centrifugal air cleaning system prevents larger dust and debris particles from reaching the air filter. In return, you get improved engine life and less maintenance cleaning the air filter.
Sturdily built crankcase withstands high RPMs and tough professional use. This ensures a long service life.
Retained bar nuts
This function prevents loosing the bar nuts.
Adjustable oil pump
You can control oil flow based on application and weather conditions.
Forged three-piece crankshaft for maximum durability for the toughest applications.
The vibration dampening system called LowVib is present in all Husky chainsaws. Metal springs in the engine suspension reduce vibrations felt by the operator. This allows you to work longer without your hands getting exhausted and it also prevents developing medical conditions.
The front handle and handguard are offset by 7° to provide a more natural holding position.
Inertia activated chain brake
In the case of kickback, the inertia mechanism will stop the chain from running. This significantly reduces the risk of injury.
Gives optimal engine performance throughout automatic engine setting. No time spent on carburetor adjustments. It compensates for different fuels, altitude, humidity, temperature, and clogged air filter.
