Well if the photos don’t lie it looks good in that regard. The fellow isn’t a chainsaw guy and said it was hard to start, too heavy and way too much saw for him. Just what I want to hear, lol
That's exactly what you want to hear! Too much saw, didn't run it much, too heavy, hard to start etc. That's the saw finding it's way to you..... ;D

Here she is! It's a beauty. First thing I did was cross my fingers and give a tug on the rope. Compression is rock solid. Now, pull plug and check for spark, nice and blue. Took the covers off and check things over, very clean unit, all stock and all there! Chain brake works great. It has the modified handle with the screws and is leak free, that's a blessing.

I thought an attempt at staring was in order and I proceeded to flood the daylights out of it. I asked the fellow to drain the tank of fuel as it was going in my wife's carb trunk. Didn't realize that there was still fuel in the line and carb so a shot of fuel into the carb was probly not a good thing to do. Pulled the plug and cranked it over and cleared things out and she fired up after about 5 pulls and first pull thereafter. 32" bar and 404 chain. Chain needs a good going over but I will more than likely just replace it.

I just love the sound and feel of these things.

Three things .First they certainly have enough power. They have a super amount of compression ,mine wears a D-handle .Starting depends on the saw ,mine floods easily  .Cold start one pull   with the choke then get off it and usually a few more and it lights off .Warm start no choke usually one gets it then .I predict you're going to like it . :)

Very nice donbj, it must be the last year 2100CD from 1986-1987 as that was about the time when Husqvarna introduced the XP decals. And yours looks like a earlier XP decal as they later ended up being a single blue XP.
If I'm not mistaken I think the Canadian 2100CD were the only ones that were labeled XP.
1988 the 2101XP was introduced with the blue XP decal on top cover and rewind  housing badge.

Super nice 2100, Don!! ;D

Don't think that's the original AF cover, but that's very typical in these saws after all the yrs. Yeah, go by the serial#, not the XP decal on the cover. I have an earlier 2100 and it has the XP sticker cover because it's a replacement

Lots of guys on the forums have traced these saws by their production serial #'s. I think I even saw a database once from a spreadsheet. I've lost that over the yrs.

Point being is that there are folks out there that can nail the production yr of your saw. XP SEM's modules were available as early 80-81. When they started with the decals I don't remember. Again, it's fairly well documented.

Toss the chain brake....lol, to make it a real production saw from back in the day.

Oh and don't get caught up in the way the Swedes vented these big saw tanks. It's over-complicated, ridiculous and all the parts are NLA. Some folks have come up with some very simple alternatives....they would even make the Swede engineers blush.

Both my old 2100's start with 2991 and then the serial. Obviously, Husky made it easier by the time they got to your saw.

Old Jonsereds.....we've never figured out their serial # system. Only thing you can tell is if it's an early, mid or late production run just by the size of the number. If there's a code in there for dates, we never cracked it.

Not necessarily specific to the 2100, but someone posted on AS that the first digit on the serial is the yr, the second two digits the week.....on the saws that don't have the date stamp like yours. I'm not sure that even works on the 2100's......someone else said that 1984 was the first yr they started stamping the date code first.???

Is that for just the 2100’s. My little 44 has a 1983 date.

Probably sold to the weekend warrior back in the day.....notice the absence of the clutch cover dawg.

But the last thing you want is a clapped-out, high hr loggin' saw....lol.

That's about $416USD give or take a few cents. Don't feel bad....some yrs ago a 2101 appeared on eBay that was NIB, found in a closet. US saw....went for over $3,000. I quit watching the bidding after $3,000 because it made my stomach hurt.
