    So i finally thought its time to retire my echo cs3000 top handle saw and get a new one
    i have switched to almost all husky in my *** line up, from brush cutters and stuff
    got my self a new husky t435 top handle 2 weeks ago, its a xtorq model

    its a TURD !!! the throttle response is sh!ttiest among the top handle i've had and run.
    the carb adjustments are limited, i cant turn in the L too far. it wont matter if i go too far its hard to start
    now i was thinking if there's anyway to hop up this turd, the muffler is probably the weirdest i've seen in my life

    throw me suggestion guys

    Pull the limiters, open up the actual muffler and the tube where it exits near the clutch cover, re tune. After doing this mine ran pretty well. My biggest gripe was how stiff the chainbrake was.

    Husky has no idea how to make a top handle saw. All the other husky saws are great.

    They have never made a top handle worth its salt period. Just sell it and buy something you want and will enjoy using.

    There is no fixing that saw, it's just a turd in every respect.

    Saw is new right? Take it back to the dealer, no reason to void the warranty by trying to adjust it.

    how do you pull the limiters ? the adjustment screws are there, so do i take it off and fiddle with the springs ?
    i need to study the muffler, its odd kinda design
    the chainbrake is really PITA, it drives me crazy

    Like was stated earlier, just take it back and buy one you like.

    I think those limiter caps I pulled with a drywall screw, its been a while so not exactly sure. The muffler is separate from the tube the exhaust exits out of. I opened up the outlets of both.
    If you take it back, try the t536lixp. It's probably the best top handle out there right now.

    This is why you shouldn't pigeon hole into a specific brand. Love my Echo cs355t.

    My first look would be at one of the top handle Stihl saws like sold at Rural King farm store. They have the 193T for $299.

    I'm not sure, I just said that would be my first look, not sure that's what I would buy. It is Stihl's cheapest top handle so I'm sure it's not the most powerful but I imagine it's fairly reliable..193s have been around for quite a while..

    I wouldn't doubt it, most of them are on the cheaper Stihls but it might be changeable..

    I'm not familiar with the 3500 but the 355t is a nice saw. A nice used 200t but I didn't wanna pay half a grand for a tiny saw with umpteen hours. $350 would be right on the money for me.

    192 is just as blah out of the box, I actually would prefer the 435. 355t seems like the best bang for the buck. I hear modded they are rippers.
