Husq are no better or worse than any other brand and no brand is idiot proof either.
Ive got three husky chainsaws
A 268 for heavy trunking work,a 136 for elevated work and trimming and a 346 as an allrounder I take on unknown jobs.
The 268 is decades old and I can get still spares next day for it from a network of dealers.
Never had problems with any of them.
Spares can be a problem if you buy a cheap brand saw from discount ads or garden DIY centres so I would stick to a small saw from a reputable manufacturer like Husqvarna ,Stihl or Jonsered.
