ok here's my picks for my three saw setup but i only have 1 problem.
sometimes felling the bigger oaks and poplars required a 576xp...(shhhh that's what i told my wife)
i have an older Husqvarna 55 for normal felling and bucking. now i wanted a small,top handle perferably, husky to make my set complete but the money aint there for the new saws that husky offers. i was going to go with a small poulan 2000 i've worked a trade on instead but it was heavy on my heart lol.(not that i dont like poulan but ya know lime green and orange kinda clash in the woods)
UNTIL i was on fleebay looking at some parts for the 2000 and ran across some parts that would fit the 2000\craftsman 2.0\husky 23.
now i wasn't aware of this so i looked it up on the google images and found it to look identical.

long story short... could i buy the side shrouds off of the husky 23 and puttem on the poulan 2000? it looks like a common sense swap but i figured i'd ask before i dive into investing in the shrouds. thanks in advance...

Yes the 23 parts will fit the 2000, there the same saws.

Trust me though I have had the Orange and Lime Green saws out together at the same time alot. They match just fine and they get along well also.

I bring a 2138 jred for limbing, a ms362 for felling and bucking, and a 385xp just because. And sometimes I bring along the old stand by ms290 just in case
