    I was wondering what is the best anti vib saw in the 80cc range? In general what manufacture makes the best over all anti vib system in pro saw category? Thanks:chainsaw:

    If you consider the 7900 a 80cc saw, I will have to say it is very smooth:cheers:

    The husky 390 is a much smoother saw than the 385.

    The 7900 gets my vote! The 385/2186 are smooth operators also but weigh a couple pounds more...

    The only 2 huskys I have ran are a 455rancher (pos) and a 395xp. I have ran alot of stihls and the only smooth 2 are the 441 and 361..... But they are not as smooth as my Dolmar 7900 with a good full comp chain.:clap:

    I agree here! I was cutting large Oak and Sugar Maple and 7900 is VERY smooth and LOTS of power!

    Funny thing is that the 7900 has (or at least had - haven't been much on German sites lately) restrictions on it in Germany for pro use, because of "excessive vibes"....:hmm3grin2orange::hmm3grin2orange:

    It gets more funny when the 460 passed the tests!

    I understand that the issue is the lab measured vibe speeds on the handles, not how it actually affects the users - and I believe that those lab results disregard how well the vibes are damped before they actually hit the hand, and how hard they actually hit......:dizzy:

    Edit; This is just an anecdote, not meant as an opinion in the debate - I never ran an 80cc saw myself (unless a 2094 cutting in ice counts).

    Johnny 2186, I kinda like them smoothness wise more than the husky dono why but i guess it could be the not so bent handle bar.
