Husqvarna 135 vs Stihl 180 chainsaws – Summary

The Stihl MS 180 is a compact chainsaw, that is relatively easy to alternate between vertical and horizontal cutting. It is also great to use when working around trees and bushes as it is easy to manoeuvre.

It has slightly less power and a lower specification than the Stihl MS 181 – which is a  much better buy owing to the additional features it has. Features like a  ‘tool-free’ filter cap making it easy to turn, and a much improved filter system.

 

The Husqvarna 135 (Click here for lower price from UK store) is also an excellent little compact chainsaw that easily deals with all the cutting jobs you might need it for domestically. It cuts through even large logs quickly and evenly and can take a chainsaw bar of up to 45cm long.

It is a chainsaw that is easy to start with its SmartStart setting and it is not complicated to operate. It is however let down by the relatively short domestic guarantee available on domestic purchases. Just 90 days, compared to the one year guarantee available on the Stihl MS 180 chainsaw.
