Second generation lightweight and efficient all-round saw, ideal for those looking for a chainsaw that is exceptionally easy to start and manoeuvre. Starts easily also with a slower pull, comes with slimmer saw body and flip-up tank caps. Featuring X-Torq® engine for lower fuel consumption and reduced emission levels.
The letters on the screws represent High (H), Low (L) and Idle (T). The H screw regulates the Air/Fuel mix during high RPMs, while the L Screw does the same during low RPMs. The T screw regulates how much fuel is sent to the carburettor while idling until the throttle is pressed.
Smart Start is one of Husqvarna`s unique technology because when their chainsaws are installed with it, it means it`s extremely easy to start.
If your chainsaw still starts and then stops working, check the air filter. Clean or replace the air filter if it is dirty or damaged. Another reason that your chainsaw starts and then stops working could be that the spark arrestor is dirty or clogged.
The fuel line may be clogged from stale fuel deposits, more reasons to cause your chainsaw to cut out when applying throttle. If a fuel line is cracked, it will leak gasoline and draw air from outside into the fuel line. If the line is leaking fuel, it needs to be replaced.
Check the air filter and spark plug on the Husqvarna 350. If the air filter is clogged or dirty, clean it or replace it with a new one from Husqvarna or an online parts house. You can test this by trying to start the saw without the air filter. Some parts houses offer maintenance kits that include the filter.
The Husqvarna Group (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈhʉ̂ːsˌkvɑːɳa ˈɡruːp]) is a Swedish manufacturer of outdoor power products including robotic lawn mowers, chainsaws, trimmers, brushcutters, cultivators, and garden tractors.
Husqvarna road bikes are a premium product for people who are on the stylish side, very modern. They exist all over the world.
How powerful is the chainsaw`s engine? Power, measured by cubic centimeters (cc), differentiates chainsaw engines. A larger engine with 65 cc generates more power, which is useful when sawing through tough trees.
The fuel and oil mixture should always be 2% (50:1).
Today, Husqvarna Motorcycles GmbH is owned by PIERER Mobility Group.
Hydropower was required in the manufacturing process, so in 1689, a drilling works was established beside the water falls in Huskvarna, southern Sweden (at that time spelled Husqvarna), where many products are still produced today.
Safety Switch. Craftsman chainsaws can stop running when they get extremely hot as a precautionary measure. Many models have auto-off settings that prevent the engine from burning out. If an engine does not shut off, it can be damaged beyond repair.
The two most common reasons a chainsaw won`t idle are a blocked air filter and an idle screw out of adjustment. Other possible causes include: Dirty Air Filter. Idle Screw out of Adjustment.
Fuel Filter is Clogged

When it`s clogged, this affects the flow of gasoline to the engine which then causes the engine to stall. The fuel filter will need replacing if it appears to be clogged yet if it seems clean, it may be a different problem causing the engine to cut out.

And finally, the chainsaw giving off smoke is a surefire sign of it being overheated. I`m not talking about exhaust smoke, but smoke with “unnatural” color and intensity. And finally, if your chainsaw stops after displaying one or more of the above signs – you can be about 90% sure that it overheated.

I have a new Husqvarna chain saw and when it is turn on its side it dies whats wrong.

No oil to bar. – Husqvarna "Chain Saw – 16" Bar, 3 Hp
ANSWER : You need the oiler gear . You have to remove the oiler and clean it out too. They tend to clog up then stop all together. You remove the clutch by turning it clockwise and using a thick plastic piston stopper that fits into the spark plug hole. Then remove the screws to the oiler.

Hope this is not one of those ********, pay us first before we help us website situation.

ANSWER : Sounds like the ports on the bar are possibly clogged with debris or the oil lines going down to the bar are clogged. Check both of them to see if that might be the problem.

I am having problems with the chain coming off the guide rail of a Husqvarna 345. A new rail and chain was put on the saw recently. When the chain came off last time I noticed a lot of wear on the teeth that sit in the guide rail – in some cases the teeth were almost worn away altogether. The chain is getting oil. What could be causing this – I am wondering if the chain should be tighter.
ANSWER : It is possible that the clutch sprocket teeth are badly worn causing extra wear on the drive teeth of the chain. Remove the bar and chain to check the sprocket–you can determine the wear by comparing the area where the chain runs to the edges of the sprocket that are relatively unworn. If the sprocket requires replacement, the chain should be replaced as well. The chain normally should be loose enough that the chain can be moved by hand, but it should not droop from the lower bar edge. Check the chain oiling by running the bar tip at speed near some cardboard–it should throw off a thin line of oil after a moment or two. There should be an oil volume adjustment screw located on the under side of the case near the chain return area–turn CCW to increase flow. Hope this helps!
