“12 years and still going.”

Written on: 26/06/2014 by Titusl56 (1 review written)

I bought my Husky 350 running an 18in bar 12 years ago and its still going strong. Its mainly used for cutting reclaimed Red Gum and Grey Box Railway Sleeper. I cut fire wood all year round with it for our wood stove and extra wood during Autumn and Winter for the Fire Heater and is never missed a beat, yes it does leak chain oil but I'm happy to live with that… Read Full Review

“Husqvarna 350 muffler coming loose”

Written on: 06/04/2013 by andysmithal (1 review written)

I have had the Husqvqarna 350 from new since 2006. I became aware of the muffler problem from reviews. For five years it worked fine cutting ten tonnes of timber a year. When I used it to help out in a local forrest and did some serious 'bucking' the saw became very hot the bolts fell out. They are about 100mm long and expand when hot, become loose and the vibrations rattle them out. I tightened them when hot and that worked except that when the bolts cooled they pulled the threads. Eventually… Read Full Review

“The Husqarna 350 chainsaw”

Written on: 19/02/2013

I do not know what the people who write all the horror stories about the 350 muffler bolts that come lose have for justification of this complaint. It's never happened to me! Now any machine needs maintenance. I try to check my bolts after a hard days use. Might be that I'm lucky, I've never found them loose but have found a few others that were. I tighten them- it's no big deal! If all of the complainers can not take time to maintain their machines ; than all I can advise is to hire your work… Read Full Review

“Husky muffler problem”

Written on: 21/01/2013

Three times the muffler has fallen off the engine and of course I couldn't fine the bolts, so I brought it to the shop and the dealer said when that happens (the muffler comes off) the saw is...."garbage" !!! Boy, I thought I was buying a quality saw but instead I paid for a piece of s.......No more Huskavarna chainsaws for me. Indeed, customer service @ Huskavarna told me they have had lots of problems with the 350 and it was on the "bulletin" for a long time....meaning it was a problem saw… Read Full Review

I also have a 2004 husqvarna 350. It has very little use and it was reliable until now [2011].A dead pine tree fell in my yard and as I was cutting it up the saw quit running as it became very hot. I was using that type oil which is supposed to suit any gas-oil mixture requirements and had very good luck with all my 2 cycle engines. I opened the 350 and it had a broken ring. The cylinder wall had some scoring and also the piston had some scoring I sanded out most of the worse and installed a new standard ring as it hasn't been used much up till then. Now I have no compression and will be installing an oversize ring soon. It gets very hot here in Florida and maybe the reason for the problem of it getting so hot with constant cutting.

Written on: 02/02/2011

I run my 350 on a 1:25 mix. It a little harder to start, but has been running great for years now. Overall I am happy with the saw, apart from the muffler bolt problem. I have fitted lock washers recently so I hope that will work. Failing that I will have to come up with another solution. I also have a 61 which is great for large rings 16". However, it is heavy and cumbersome, so the 350 is great for the smaller stuff. When my father is cutting with me he always chooses the 350 to use as he… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/12/2010

Muffler Falling Off: Bought the Huskie 350 last summer 2009 and use it occasionally to trim trees on our two acre lot. Didn't need a larger Huskie for the work. However, the muffler came loose because one of the muffler bolts fell completely out. The other one was coming loose. Why would this happen? Poor manufacturing! Well we'll see if the warranty will fix since it since it's only a year and a couple months old. Funny that while I was in the dealer another guy was standing there that… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/11/2010

There has been some problems with Husky 350. These were a cheaper built husky saw, but for the money it has good power. As for the muffler falling off, I have found installing a muffler bracket off of a 353 chainsaw sometimes fixes the problem. All you need to do is buy a muffler support bracket for a 353, have to cut the left side mounting ear off. (353 has another bolt hole opposite the felling dog.) And install. Husky has a fix out that includes replacing the cylinder and muffler, but at… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/04/2010 by ken sutton (1 review written)

I own a Tree Company and started out with Husky 350 over five years ago. The Stihl Chainsaws I purchased at the same time are still working perfectly. The 350 Husky did well for a year then the body bolts fell out soon followed by the muffler. Body bolts are easily replaced. Unfortunately the muffler is not easily replaced. I have had several repairs on The 350 costing over $200.00 not to mention the aggravation of downtime. The repairs have never been successful for long 30 minutes tops. I… Read Full Review

Husky 350 is a beast! However, I have had problems with muffler. I took it to repair while under warranty and they tried locktite and put another smaller bolt to hold muffler in place. It worked for few jobs but came off again. Now I am considering tapping head with little larger bolt to keep muffler on. Others did tell me to buy stihl but couldn't justify price for what I could get this! I have had mine for about 4years and love the power! But come on Husky get it right!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/11/2009

After owning a Husky model 61 for many years I decided to step down to a lighter saw for smaller logs. A Husky 350 seemed to fit the bill. Although not as powerful as the 61, the 350 did all I expected of it. Less vibration than the 61, in my estimation it ran at faster RPM's than the 61 and was more comfortable all around to use than the 61. I did, however, notice that the oiler was not lubricating the chain properly. In-as-much as the oiler is adjustable, it still seemed to inadequately oil… Read Full Review

He Lowe's hardware and raised a stink so they replaced it at now charge by giving him the 450 series. Both Lowe's and the repair shop said they have been having major troubles with the 350.

Written on: 23/08/2009

I have read all of the past reviews on the Husqvarna 350 Chain Saw and I know why there is a lot of people with problems with the saw. I think it is great I just finished my 50th cord of wood with this thing and have had it for three years. Not sure exactly who it is that states it should have a 50-1 mix, maybe the EPA. What I can tell you is that this is completely wrong. It makes the saw run too hot, causing the aluminum head to heat up thus mufflers coming off, warping the bar etc....It… Read Full Review

Awzap's Comment

Written on: 26/01/2010

I found this review very helpful because I had a 350 that ran fine but overheated, leading to some of the problems reported. I have also been advised not to make the mix richer as it will clog the carb. It may be that after three years of use the 350, now with a blown cylinder, was affected by ethanol in the gas. In earlier years there was no ethanol - now there is 10 percent in our gas here in California. Ethanol can dissolve rubber in the fuel line or, if the gas tank is plastic, it may dissolve the inner wall - as power boat owners have discovered. Does anyone know if this occurs with Husqvarna tanks?

I would never run any of my petrol-powered hand tools on pump gas, only clean-burning synthetic alkylate fuel (a premix for chainsaws in this case, 1:50 or 2%). This is the same type of fuel professional lumberjacks have used for decades in some parts of the world, e.g in Scandinavia. The advantages far outweigh the higher cost of this fuel: - far cleaner exhaust, much less risky to inhale for the operator (almost smoke- and odorless) and of course much better for the environment - much better for the machine with less carbon deposits, far longer spark plug life - the fuel does not become stale with time, works just as well after months and even years without clogging the fuel line. Apart from that, I'd say the number one factor to prevent a chainsaw from overheating is a correct carburetor adjustment, number two is to make sure the muffler (including the spark arrestor mesh) never becomes clogged. The carburetor adjustment takes experience to get right, too lean fuel/air-mix will kill any chainsaw, too rich and it 4-strokes also under load and will perform miserably. I have a saw very similar to the 350, an almost ten year old Husky 340 that still works perfectly despite being heavily used. Sounds and feels like a furious racing engine, these are truly awesome saws and a pleasure to use!
