Default Turned over a new leaf, bought a Husky

Yea, I did it. Spent my hard earned money and bought a Husky. Will see how it performs as I will post reviews for sure.

I did ask my local dealer to stop by and give me a demonstration as to how it works with a few pointers. He refused, Strike one! Pics to follow.

Well Moser , its has that no choke feature and customer service is priority one so i figured dealer could take a few minutes. Do I sharpen it like the others? Will it cut green stuff?

Maybe the few that are here can enjoy it more to make up.

Wishlist, if you never sharpen it, maybe the other saw will have a chance in the saw off contest.

Congradulations on the newest addition to the fleet.

Time to let the cat out of the bag. The REAL story is yes , I did by a Husky and no its not a chainsaw......cold day in H@&$ before that happens!

I need a large box to send my syrup pan to 3rdgen, he's making me a spare . So I figured I would buy this box and get a free Husky ! Well , darn Husky dealer doesn't have a box for me yet , strike 2 ! Lol...... I still don't get it why he wouldn't mow my little piece of 3 acres as a demonstration.

I will say mower is nice compared to my old $25 special that I've had for 20 years. I just use this for trim and it does a nice job. Real easy to push , lightweight and no choke or primer bulb to start . Maybe Xak can fill us in on how that works ? I have no idea?

Well, it was fun while it lasted.

Maybe what good service means is that they provide you with a lawn to mow at their place for your convenience.
