Husqvarna 395XP First Time Use


A while ago we purchased our fourth Husqvarna saw. After being used to the 455 Rancher (20″ bar), it was time to upgrade to a 32″ bar Husqvarna 395XP. We already have a 3120 XP, with a longer bar, but that is to be used with our Alaskan Sawmill.

It is still in it’s “run in” period, and according to the manual you should run it without pushing it for about ten hours. Experts disagree about the “run in” period…if it is necessary or not. But, I choose to let it run a bit easy in the beginning. Hence, it is a bit smoky, and does not run smooth yet. After the “break-in” period, I will use my Stihl (shhh…don’t tell) tachometer to adjust the carb properly.

Also, due to high altitude (about 8,700′ above sea level), it is a bit hard to start so far, without any proper adjustment. But, I will tune it soon.

At least, watch the video, if you want.
