Jonsered are better outa the box then just about any other saw. The Husky will need too be tuned too match the Red.

Huskys are marketed too home owners will Jonsreds are more marketed too arborists.

Both are fine saws though. But I prefer my older Stihls.

As long as you get a pro model you will be fine. Also think about dealer support. Go with what you can get serviced or warrantied easy.

I have the 2165 jonsreed saw and we just picked up a new 576 XP husky saw. Well balanced. Nice saw. Did a few bigger jobs with it thus far and I like the saw.
