    The 272xp is made 1993 week 11, the 61 most likely 1984 week 42.

    Model 61

    So I am curious, from what I am reading would I be right to guess since my Husky 61 (serial 2240XXX) was manufactured in 2002? or would it be 92? It has a red top and a black serial plate. Thank you for any help you may provide. Also, I have found mention of American made, Brazilian made and Swedish made. Mine shows Sweden as the country of manufacture. I am assuming quality may be different depending upon where it was built??:msp_rolleyes:

    Your 61 would be from 92. If it were a 2002 the serial number would be 02 XXXXXX, there is a two digit year followed by a space and the rest of the serial number.

    I would like to see a picture of that tag - the number indicates 1991 week Zero, but the 395 wasn't out yet by then.....

    It could also be a saw from some special order batch - such oddities does exist.

    There have been many versions of that "code" through the years! :)

    That system was introduced in 1999, around week 20 or so, and is still the current one.

    @ sawtroll

    My memory may be playing tricks on me.
    I don't own a husky
    I am not an authority
    This question is not about sideways balance

    I thought I remember reading in a clone/fake husky thread that
    the name of the town
    and the brand name were spelled differently
    so the serial number tag should have the two different spellings on it.

    Please clear up any misconceptions I may have on this matter.
    My SAD may become HAD and evolve into CAD one day

    Acceptance that there are other saws which are as good or better than Stihls is a sign of a maturing saw addict--congratulations!!!

    Sorry Saltas - I never looked into that, so I don't know (not even sure I fully understand the question).

    Of course the name of the city could have changed over time, while the company/brand name has been kept unchanged. The company is more than 300 years old (about 322).

    Sawtroll:
    The year/ser no system has also changed a bit in that time!
    On my 357 XPG the ser no is: 2009 5100242
    On my ´08 346 XP it starts with 08, and on my ´09 353, it starts with 09!
    So no golden rules!

    Saltas:
    Yes, the city is spelled Huskvarna, and the brand is Husqvarna!
    Like troll says, could have changed over time.
