The Husqvarna 365 X-Torq is a chainsaw suitable for every-day professional use and has been using ideas from professionals working in some of the worlds most testing environments. It has been designed with a ratio of low weight to high power and thanks to it’s rugged engine, is versatile enough to be suited to a variety of different working conditions. X-TORQ engines have been designed to lower fuel consumption making them much more environmentally friendly with a radically lower exhaust emission level.
Ergonomics are the key to a great chainsaw and Husqvarna have long been working to improve theirs. Smart Start technology is utilised on pretty much all Husqvarna saws now and it helps the chainsaw start with very little effort. Due to the specially designed engine and starter, their saws now have a reduced starter cord resistance of up to 40%. LowVIb is another clever bit of engineering that reduces the amount of vibration produced by the saw. This is done through the application of anti-vibration dampeners separating the engine from the body of the saw.
Further evidence of handy ergonomics come from a side-mounted chain tensioner, which allows the operator to make quick and easy adjustments to cope with more demanding tasks. Not only chain tension, but chain lucubration is also made easier, thanks to an adjustable oil pump which comes In handy when working in different temperatures. An angled front handle works well with LowVib, providing a better grip of the already low-vibrating saw.
Another key factor in the success of this saw is its high durability levels allowing it to be used in a variety of tough settings. Magnesium crankcase and forged three-piece crankshaft make the saw capable of withstanding high rpms, ensuring a much longer service life. A centrifugal air cleaning system also helps by reducing wear on the saw, while making sure your filter needs cleaning less frequently.
In terms of servicing, the 365 comes with a quick-release air filter and cylinder cover making the changing of spark plugs and air filters much easier. The saw is also fitted with an inertia-activated chain brake which can help reduce the likeliness of injury through chainsaw kickback or an upwards jolt. The saw will shut off power in the instance of kickback or a sudden upward movement.
