Husqvarna model year identification
« on: April 04, 2008, 01:55:04 PM »
I inherited a set of nice Husqvarna saws from a relative.  I am wondering if anyone can tell me from the serial numbers or part number listed on the metal plate the age of the saws?  Can anyone give me details on the identification system that Husqvarna uses on the name plates.  From the Husqvarna website I was able to download the operating manual but it would be nice to know more details. Would a dealer be able to easily tell me this information?  Thanks.

A dealer should not have any problem getting you the info you want from the serials .

I think there are even some threads on here somewhere that describe the serial numbers and where to find the year.

I was also able to confirm the model year is the first two numbers of the S/N.  The other numbers I am not sure but could be date codes for production?

Thanks

Some times it is the first didgit only that refer to the year, some times it is the first two, some times the year is there (4-didgit) - and on really old ones there are no reference to the year at all (I believe).........

On numbers with reference to the year, the next two didgits refer to the week of that year - the rest are the number within that week.

The Husqvarna 51 came out late 1980s if not 1990. So that number to me says the saw is the 70th unit built in the 15th week of 1991.

How many of you have a husqvarna 50 manufactured in 1989? One was given to me recently. The saw doesn't run, no fire. It is a complete saw. On the top cover it states 300 hundred years 1689-1989.

That one is the '89 anniversary addition. Sounds like it has the decal on the top cover as you described.  Does it have a orange chain brake?  Some guys like to collect that year, as myself. :)

I've owned one of the anniversary 50 before, that one as well as the one I acquired the other day have orange clutch covers. The one I had previously was a dandy little saw. 'ol boy wasn't gonna be satisfied until I sold to him, so I gave in and let him buy it. I'll put a coil on it, that will probably have it running. It's almost impossible to find that particular top cover is almost impossible to find. The reason for that is the choke is integrated into the top cover. I don't know, I might keep it. Lord knows I don't need it.

Yea, that's my story.  I need another like I need a hole in the head.  Just bought a clean Jonny 2077 which I didn't need either.  I buy'em, keep them a while, and resell.  No cure for my CAD. :D

Seldom do I buy a saw unless it is a new saw for me. Like everything else these days new saw prices are outta site. I have been around long enough that most of the loggers around here I have known since they were kids. The point is I have access to multiple saw grave yards. That's what started the Fraunk-n-Steen saw which are saws that are gifted to young men with young families that can't afford to buy a new saw. Husqvarna, as far as I can tell, has changed the way their #s identify saws. I don't know that to be fact but it seems that it is. Holmantree you can chime in and correct me if I'm wrong on that. Same with Jonsered. However, I don't have any trouble identifying older professional Husqs or Jonsered, or stihl for that matter. What's comical is, a fella should keep two hands on a chainsaw when it's cutting period, can't use but one saw at a time, and I got all these saws sittin round here.

Easy to see what year your Huskies are. Even Frankenstein saw parts can be dated by their time clocks symbols .
Here's the date codes on my 2012 562XP's top cover. 
Month and year.

The only husqvarna I own that has the original side and top covers is my 372xp. That particular saw was manufactured in 2000. The starter cover and the top cover, best I can tell, were manufactured in 97 and 99.
