I have great respect for Husqvarna, their chainsaws are second to none. One can see they have talented people and innovative designs more so than any other brand. However, Husqvarna must be a tough customer to work with. Nothing they make ever gets finished !?!? Every piece I've owned had some sort of design issue that should have been ironed out during testing. By the time they fix the designs, that unit is no longer in production and around we go again.
