Huskys bad rep
« on: June 23, 2008, 07:52:37 PM »
Back about 5 months ago the local husky rep came by. I have known him about two years he was a contractor that got tired of the problems of being your own boss a job opening came up for a husky rep and he got it. Anyway about 5 months ago he came by and I showed him my 340 husky.It had a broken clutch spring so he took it and said i'll get this fixed for you. It's now 5 going on six months later with no word about my saw so I call him up. He says did I take your saw! Oh yea you did. He says I don't remember who I gave it to too fix and says I'll get back to you. So 2 weeks go by and I call him again he says he can't find it. He says I'll bring by a new 338 to replace it. I say wait a minuet my 340 had some porting and the exaust opened up because I race it at a couple fairs and this 338 wont even come close to the way 340 ran. I really just want my saw back but it ain't looking to good. In the mean time I hear that this guy has been kicked out of a local Husky dealership because he just doesn't know what he's doing. Every husky saw that goes out comes right back with loose parts and not running right because there not being set up right. So I guess i'm going to have to take whatever I can get out of this Idiot and swap it for what I want. Lesson learned never let your saws outa your sight if you can fix em your self.Kinda P@#ss me off >:(

That would probably be enough to negate the effects of my happy medicine. I mean.

I never heard of a scenario with an outside service rep this bad. If I were you I would go higher up. I know you'll be dealing with suits the higher you go, but if you pen the right letter, it might work. I would not just email, I would send snail mail to two different divisions. One here and a cc to the Swedes, with an email heads up.

This is downright unacceptable. This guy sounds like he's on crack or something.

This kind of reminds me of one of my customer's experiences. He bought an old farm tractor, a Case I think, and took it to a guy the in the next town over to get some work done to it. He didn't hear anything, so after a month or so he drives over to check on it. The mechanic claimed he never had the tractor. This tractor was bought for cash with no receipt. There were no photographs of it and the serial number had never been written down. The mechanic never wrote up any paperwork either. My customer thus had no recourse against this mechanic. It was cheaper to just walk away than to pursue it in court.

A reliable rep. should have insurance to cover the lose of your saw. Contact his service manager and have the Sheriff go over and look for your saw to return it if necessary. I've seen cases where this as rectified similar situations.

Tell him that you`ll take a new 350 in trade, that shouldn`t be any problem for him as long as there are some left in the pipeline. He can just write it off as a demo.

I would take a 350 in trade but I would have to find another saw to race with. I bought this 340 because it was in the top of the 2.5 ci class and the 350 is out of class.

well now i really do not want to whip anyone, but is the 350 husky any count as far as saws go. i just acquired one this past weekend. it looks to be a tad bit smaller than my 55 and also looks like .325 chain. any thoughts on this.

Right on both counts Ely, smaller than the 55 and it is .325 chain. get some hours on it and adjust the carb and it should cut pretty good.

I gotta be honest, I was wondering why in heck you were racing a 340.

oh this saw is certain to have some hours on it. i need to do a few small repairs on it and maintenence also. i may have to appeal to you gurus on here for some guidance at one point or other.
i got it in a trade and it is a used saw so to speak. i would almost say abused.

That`s cool! Takes alot of skill to race a small cube saw well.

What about picking up an older small saw with a removable cylinder, then you could really have it ported.

It's most likely just a regional thing . Many of the more well known race things only have two classes,below 80 cc and above .

The last little "picnic " race I participated in we ran a top handle class for the bumble bees .Kinda neat . My piped mini Mac won but not by much .

Now there's deal for you .You can buy those little saws for song and ones like it .Hop the little pup up and go to town .If you screw it up you aren't out too much moola

I think at Medina event I seen 6 classes once and one of them was 40cc or 38cc and under too. The next year I take me a little poulan for the class and they put them in the 50cc under, so it didnt get ran.
Al, I am thinking about trying to hopped up my poulan 1800 or 2000 to try and run with your piped mini mac or your hopped 020 or 200T you said you were working on. I going with muffler though.
Top Handle racing  at its best :o Those ASz guys would have a fit  wouldnt they  :D because they all say they ain't safe for bucking wood, yet we raced them and didn't cut nothing off  ;D and I used mine for bucking and felling before I new what a top handle saw was. Did what I had to as a unexperienced harry homeowner. ::)
