Husqvarna 365 20 in

ReviewSpecificationWhere to buy

The Husqvarna 365 is the kind of chainsaw that you would be looking for if you are professional woodcutter and want to find a reliable tool to help you on a daily basis. This model clearly delimitates from its somewhat amateur predecessors in the Husqvarna series, delivering more power than a typical homeowner would need.

This means that the Husqvarna 365 is a little bit more expensive, but there are many reasons to support the price.

Pros

Good performance

As you would probably expect from a Husqvarna model, this chainsaw is easy to use due to its light design and low vibration – which means that you can use it for a long time without your hands feeling dull or experiencing the inconveniences that you would normally have with a heavier chainsaw. And it’s also easy to maneuvre, so you’ll be able to cut faster and better with it, and save some fuel in the process.

The turbo air cleaner does its job very well and you won’t have to do much repair and maintainance to keep it the filter that way. The 365 should generally have a long life-span and require little maintainance in the process.

Versatile chainsaw

Just like its predecessors in the Husqvarna series, the 365 models offer many adjustable features, which even seem to be improved versions. The adjustable oil pump will allow you to set the chain lubrication right for any needs you have and weather conditions you encounter. You will also like the side-mounted chain tensioner, which makes it really easy to adjust the chain.

Cons

Some components may fail rather soon

Depending on how much you use this chainsaw and to what purposes, some of its components may fail rather soon. Nothing serious though, you may find out that you can make repairs on your own and it won’t cost you anything.

Adjusting the chain may be difficult, at least in the beginning, until you get the hang of it. The one thing that you will want to be extra careful about is not to run out of gas while cutting wood, you may damage the piston and that will be the end of it.

Professional chainsaw!

The Husqvarna 365 is one of the first chainsaws among Husqvarna chainsaws that is specifically designed for professional use. It’s heavier than its predecessors and it delivers much more torque and power, but it still maintains some of the cool features that make it easy to use on longer periods, such as good weight and low vibration. A good overall solution for most professionals out there.
