How to start a Husqvarna chainsaw

We receive allot of phone calls and e-mails from customers asking us for advice on how to start their Husqvarna chainsaws.

All new Husqvarna chainsaws are fitted with a primer bulb for easy starting. This eliminates the need to pull the chainsaw three or four times before it will fire.  The primer bulb injects fuel into the carburettor and cylinder prior to starting. Husqvarna chainsaws fitted with a primer only require a maximum of two pulls on choke before they will fire.

Below is a detailed video which explains the steps to start a Husqvarna chainsaw.  Both hot and cold starting procedures are demonstrated.
