    I have the Husky 350 and I love it. I would recommend a Husky chainsaw any day.

    The Husky 55 Rancher is a very good saw. Lots of people on here have them. I have had several Husky's and know own a 359. My farther's a dealer so I get a break on the price. I have tried all other kinds and husky is less weight and more easy to handle. JMO!!!

    Somebody I know used to have a 55... not a bad saw as long as you aren't going to use it every day. Good for BS cutting... maybe some firewood, some storm damage, some branches, ties, etc. Long story short it's a landscaper's saw.

    We had a 350 husky a year and a half old and it is dead only been used on 8 small to medium sized trees. one medium sized pine didn't finish the pine. The cylinder was scoured won't even start. the longest gas ever sat in it was about 3-4 weeks so that never should have happened. and if they fix it it will cost more than to buy a new one. So husky's are junk in my oppinion. I am starting to get that way with anything that they also sell at lowes,Home depot isn't that great either but atleast they sell a little better products than the poulans and huskyjunkva.

    O h yeah it never was very good even new it always took like eight or more pulls to start it. I thought was a compression problem but husky swore it was fine.
