Guys need some help here, what yr is this 254xp? They made them from 1986-2001. Based on the serial # its a 1989 or a 1999. It's appears to be the newer style based on the recoil, grey bar etc.. howver as we know all the plastics can be changed. I know that Husky changed the serial #'s around the 20th week of 1999 to the newer format with the yr spelled out. This appears to be 22nd week saw. Maybe this was one of the last as a 1999 or did someone switch plastics and its a 1989 ?

pic of the serial # and saw attached. also a pic of a 1989 anniv saw (pic 1852) i found with the black bar and sq recoil etc.

thanks for the help.

My guess is 1999, week 22, 610th saw made that week. @SawTroll
The year is 1989, otherwise you are correct.

By week 22 1999 the format would have been yywwxxxxx (two digits more in total, additional digits in bold). This format was introduced just a few weeks earlier, around week 16-17 as I recall it - but I never have identified the exact week).

From the beginning of 1997 to that time in 1999 the format was yyyy ywwxxxx on a black tag (same as 1987 to 1996, but with the full year in addition, above or in front of the other digits (not directly in front).
