off topic but does Husqvarna have some very odd ad campaign over there about being a real man? here apparently they think it is a great idea to insinuate that programmers aren't men (and they wonder how their site is having so many issues)

I haven't seen this ad series in Tasmania, bit could be what you're referring to?

Nope, I'm referring to this.

Haven't seen anything like that here, no. You could make a bit of a leap and say they are in fact all the same person...

Easy to make all kinds of leaps with that ad campaign. At least it is funny to see how they can't figure out why some things are happening. A bit like when cats and dogs can't figure out there is a glass door in their way

Not condoning their ads, but I do like their products (Even though their axes aren't made by them)

Well they do have good products so can't fault anyone for buying them. Hell, if their hatchet wasn't so heavy I'd be looking where to get one over the Fiskars X7

I think the X7 is currently the best hatchet I own, the other two are Chinese, so...
The Husky hatchet here is $10-15 or so cheaper than the Fiskars but you also get a consistent product with less work from the X7

I still need to thin down my forest axe handle some more, I think. Will slowly work at polishing up the grind and getting the deeper scratches but I'm not very good at sticking to such a boring task for long periods at a time. Little bites, like getting through an elephant  :rofl:

Hmm I'll check the local prices to see if they compare.

I have the same issue with sanding. If it can be scraped then that is the obvious solution

they are about the same price but the Husqvarna is oddly listed as a lot lighter (1.1lbs)

 Doesn't say. I'd guess it is the head only. The handle is described as walnut

You might get a kick out of this. I sent an inquiry to a retailer about the type of wood on the Husqy hatchet. The reply I got was "The handle is wooden".

my current theory is that to avoid saying they are not sure which wood it is, he replied using the thing they know for sure

Thanks, but the piece of equipment I’m wondering about is a snowblower, I don’t know anything on them, I was just wondering how Husqvarna is on anything..

Well from what others have said I take it that Husqvarna anything is as good as, almost as good as, or slightly better than Stihl. Which makes it pretty good.
