Husqvarna 142 chainsaw review, from device to repair

The Husqvarna 142 chainsaw is a household tool and is used only for sawing wood materials. Its distinguishing feature: the affordability of a well-known brand is combined with impressive technical characteristics. Check out the results of our review and see for yourself.

Husqvarna 142 in use

The fuel mixture was prepared by us on the basis of AI 92 gasoline and Husqvarna HP branded two-stroke oil in a ratio of 50 to 1. It is interesting to note here that in the absence of oil added in the indicated ratio at hand, the manufacturer permits the short-term use of high-quality oil diluted with gasoline in the ratio 33 to 1.

We operated Husqvarna 142 for about an hour. It fits perfectly as a household chainsaw: almost complete absence of vibrations in the hands, quite tolerable noise level and, most importantly, excellent cutting ability. Trunks of fresh pine and dry birch with a diameter of 26 cm were repeatedly sawn for an average of 7 seconds each. The dry oak gave in a little more slowly; it took about 14 seconds to cut a log with a diameter of 24 cm. Sawing speeds are slightly lower than those of the professional chainsaws that we tested, but these are also saws of a different order of magnitude. The Husqvarna 142 is not afraid of working at full power, high revs are even recommended by the instructions. The brake is perfect. The chain stops instantly.

This is the only lifesaver in many situations, which is why it is never ignored in our reviews. Looks not intimidating: only 32 pages, two blank of which are for personal notes. There are no traces of translation by electronic systems, but in two places there are phrases that are slightly cutting the eyes, for example, “the spark plug does not light”.

Characteristics 142 of Husqvarna are presented fully with a slight caveat. Only one Champion spark plug model used is shown. But nowhere is it written explicitly that the use of any other models is strictly prohibited due to design features. As a rule, manufacturers either indicate several suitable models, or describe in detail the characteristics of the required plugs. Therefore, the section describing the ignition system could be more informative. This remark is not important, since experienced owners know how to use specialized catalogs of manufacturers and in most cases select an analogue of any candle.

The assembly procedure for the Husqvarna 142 chainsaw is described in detail with drawing explanations.

Special attention is paid to self-correction of minor problems that arise during the work.

Governing bodies

Here in Husqvarna 142 is a classic minimum. They are represented by a switch that takes the On or Off position, a choke position lever that can be in one of three positions, and a combined throttle position control lever with a stopper. Only “suction” needs to be explained here. Between the fixed positions of the open and closed throttle, there is a third stable position, corresponding to the half open throttle of the chainsaw carburetor. It is used when starting a cold engine after several jerks with a closed choke starter. Husqvarna 142 has no primer. Primary fuel pumping is carried out using the starter handle. Well, the fewer nodes, the less breakdowns!

What is responsible for supplying a mixture of fuel and oil

For accurate delivery of fuel with oil, the operation of the fuel pump is used, which is mechanically driven from the crankshaft.
