The 141 was originally described as:
A lightweight, easy to operate, versatile saw for more demanding leisure and part-time use.
Just like all our saws, this saw satisfies the toughest demands on safety, easy operation, and ergonomics as our professional saws. Useful in gardens and yards as well as for felling applications.
The Husqvarna 141 is good for:
- Cutting small logs
It isn’t generally the type of saw you would use for cutting larger logs or processing bulk firewood. It’s not designed to be used all day.
A larger, more powerful model like the Husqvarna 359 would be better for harder use.
That being said, it’s a reliable little saw that gets the job done.
It’s generally sold and run with a 16-inch bar.
Like most Husqvarna chainsaws, the 141 has many fans in the Husky community.
The fuel line issue comes up more than once when looking into this model, and often needs replacing.
If you know what you’re doing (or can find someone else who does), this is not a difficult or expensive task.
Husqvarna 141 parts are reasonably plentiful, though getting somewhat harder to find over the years.
The best place to look or ask for parts, if you can’t find them in the usual places, is in one of the many large Husky Facebook groups.
