I am often asked the question, "what do you think is the best chain saw?" My answer is usually -"don't you think it's really not the saw as much as it is the operator?" They usually agree. Then I make a statement, "chain saws don't make chain saws, people do."

The reason I use Husqvarna chain saws in my work and training is because they are not only great saws but they are also manufactured and sold by great people! From the design all the way to the sales outlets, the Husqvarna products are part of one of the largest and most dedicated teams around the world in outdoor power equipment. A lot of equipment manufacturers produce one or two strong sellers but few produce the complete lineup of saws Husqvarna offers. Saws for the homeowner around the house or farm and the seasoned professional operation in the woods or up in the trees.

With the onset of the national Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) two-stroke emissions requirements, many of the manufacturers are turning their efforts to four-stroke power units. Husqvarna's two-cycle technology is strengthening their commitment to the standards and the customer by meeting emissions requirements. The all position, light weight and high chain speed needs of the chain saw operator are better met by a two-cycle design. Husqvarna excels in two-cycle innovation.
