    Also, which small huskies are the good ones? (Not the 346 but smaller)

    The 2xx saws are the Poulans.
    The 4xx saws should be OK, but I've never used any of them.

    From what Ive seen at local dealer. All 2xx saws are/where made in sweden. The 2xx saws are a home owners "delight", okay they are really lame! Ive got a 435 and 455 strato saws. They good firewood saws but not pro grade saws.

    The last husky-poulan saws where the 137-142 series saws build in the USA.

    newer small husqvarna's

    I think the 240 is a re badged Poulan. I have a 435 (Swedish tag),
    it is a light snappy little saw for cleanup work, not sure about a 445-450.

    Ive seen 235/240's at dealers and they have made in sweden tags on them.

    Ive run a 450, it is a good little firewood saw.

    JonseyPullons (for one), maybe 2036/2040

    One of my neighbors has a 2036, I looked it over last year, could not
    find any black tag. It looks a lot like my PP260 clean-up/beater saw.
    ST may know.

    The 2036, and the husky 136, and many Poulans share a lot of the same part numbers.

    2040/2036 shared a lot with the Poulans. More recently the 2137/2138 were red and black Poulans.

    I'd give the 435 a good look. I've been thinking hard about one of them for a while to keep in the pick-up.

    Husqvarna 435/440

    I have a 435, good little cleanup saw.
    It was a PITA to start when new, I modded it by ordering an E- type
    starter assembly and keeping the original for spare & tuning as needed.
    It came with a lateral chain adjustment.
    I looked at some of this size saws @ Lowes recently, they had
    the easy adjust.
    The slightly larger 445/450 might be a good choice in this niche.
    I would like to have a 346XP NE; 455/460 maybe not.

    I had a 235 that I bought new and upon using it the first time it would just die in the cut. Since it was under warranty I did not want to fool with it and potentially have a lifelong dog. After a lot of wrangling I was able to take it back, but they did not have another 235 to give me. I was offered a 440 instead and brought that home for an additional $25 (paid the dealer's cost). I must say that I really like the saw, it is great for limbing and cutting firewood and use it far more often than my 455 or 460. Of course, I rarely cut anything much above 24" and have my 88cc Homelite 540 for those tasks.

    Based on the dozen or so tanks I have run through mine I would not hesitate to get another.

    They are nice little saws! Pretty smooth running too...
