Default Husqvarna 394XP Chainsaw 7.1HP, BIG SAW

Have a nice 394XP, which was the biggest saw Husky made when this thing first came out (now they make the massive 3120XP). Its 94cc's of cutting power will pull full skip chain on a 36" bar no problem. I've run a 60" bar on it for milling, and it still had enough power to pull it respectively. I just tuned the thing up, and replaced all the crummy parts that were on it, only thing it needs is a Stop Switch (I pull the choke to kill it), I just forgot to order it, less than a $10 part. This thing fires on the first pull when warm, takes 5-10 when cold. Oiler works great, tensioner works great. Just put in a new plug, new clutch cover, new chain brake, new brake handle, new felling dawgs by Pro-Safety (these are 3x the size of the OEM's, and are great for felling big timber) and fuel line. Piston and cylinder look new, I can mod the muffler before I ship it if you want even more power, but it really doesn't need it. I'm just selling the powerhead, all my chains and bars will stay for my 395XP. I'd be willing to trade for a decent Stihl 066/MS660; this saw has more power, but I want the side tensioner to run on my mill, and neither the 394 or 395 have them. Asking price is $450...its a $1000 saw new.

I didn't think they made trees that big on the east coast?

Ever seen a Sycamore? White Pine? Blue Spruce? Willow? Elm? Maple? Locust? Black Walnut? Hickory? All of these tree's can have bases well over 30", in which case, I pull out the MS460 or this 394XP, the 044 (my all time favorite saw) will pull a 28" bar pretty well the way I have it modified, but the 394XP will pull a 36", 42", 48" all with a lot more grunt. And in the case of super hard wood like the Black Locust, or Hickory, running a 9 or 10 pin sprocket with the 394XP will let you pull a 20" or 24" bar real quick, making the tree's fall a lot faster, and bucking them up much less time consuming.

Hey man, I didn't think hickories grew that big round. We have the rest of those out this way and they are not normally as big as the Fir, Hemlock and Cedar.

Saw is pending sale... It'll be going up to the Woodsmens days in Booneville, NY in a couple of weeks for the sale.

Wyatt, its not that Hickory's grow that big, its the fact that the wood is so hard, I throw a 8 or 9 pin sprocket on and a 28" bar and go to town. The higher the pin count on the sprocket the higher the chain speed, which means you can cut faster and get more timber on the ground in a shorter time. Cedar's don't get too big out here, not the right climate.

Fir's get big, so do the Spruce, White Pine's, Sycamore's, but the big boys are usually the Maple's, Willow's, Elm's, Walnut's and so on, tree's that have large bases but then often branch off with leaders quickly. Willow's are notorious for that, they can be 6 ft thick at the base, then 6 ft up the tree is the main crotch, where it splits into 6 or 8 leaders that are only 18-20" thick. In those cases the 044 or 046 go up the tree with me, severe all the leaders, then have to drop the trunk as one big mass, and the 044 or 046 won't run a bar big enough to drop that big a trunk.

The real PITA is the Locust tree's, they get big, like 32-36" at the base, often with a bunch of large buttress roots at the ground, and they are soooo hard. You have to run a large bar to get through the tree, which means slow chain speed, you can go to an 8 pin sprocket, but then you lose torque. So its a compromise between chain speed and power. Then you have to factor in how dense the bark is (much like a redwood or big cedar out west, but its got a lot more grit in it), which means dirt. Chains don't like to hold an edge when they get exposed to dirt. So you either axe through the bark where you'll be cutting, run a round ground semi-chisel chain thats slow as a dog, or run a good chisel chain and sharpen it every time you fuel up... I HATE these tree's. On the plus side, they make great firewood, great outdoor furniture when milled, and its not real hard to split (besides handling them with the spikes on the bark).
