disassembly of the PP5020AV shows Husquvarna stamps all over the place, so, for all intents and purposes it is an entry level Husquvarna. the saw has a fully counterweighted crank, and has proven to be pretty durable in many hands other than mine. It also has a 2 year warranty which is pretty good. If you need one saw, it's not bad. The "entry level" saws from the better manufacturers tend to have shorter bars and smaller engines, and can't cut as much. Read the review I linked above. Mine gave me initial starting troubles, but starts on second pull now. the one problem with the newer saws, from any manufacturer, is that they have either non-adjustable carbs, or need crazy tools that are no longer sold to the consumer in the US, for EPA reasons.
