    By chance would anybody have any specs on the husky 162 and/or have knowledge of a web page that has this info on it? Have looked but cant find anything. Most interested in knowing the cc size and horsepower thanks.

    myzamboni..could not bring up your link..had errors???Wow thanks all. Have this chain saw and was looking to replace it. Bought it used for almost nothing and it was my first saw. I cut a sh!t load of wood with it. It was rebuilt twice to my knowledge. It treated me well and seams to cut damn well. But I have some cash on hand and the saw is starting to get maintenance intensive. Was looking at the Sthil ms361 or ms390 as the two saws are in my price range. But I wanted to buy a saw that would ether match or surpass the power of my current saw. Sounds like I would be further ahead to dump the money into this old saw rather than spending the $700 plus dollars on one that is close to what I have. What do you guys think? I am lost now...Help!

    You have to delete the <remove this> from the link I posted. I had to add that because this site was blocking the un-altered Kijiji link.

    Thanks myzamboni, was able to bring it up. It looks just like the saw I have. Guess I just got to figure out what I am going to do now.
