    So the other day my dad came by and gave me a few pairs of gloves he picked up on sale at ace hardware some time ago. He knows i go through them..always need a new pair. I saw orange and was excited...until i saw the stihl logo.

    The question is, can i use these gloves if i have a husqvarna saw?

    Yeah, you can use them.....but don't be pissed off if that Husky gives you a fit when you go to start it!

    May want to put the gloves on AFTER you get it running! ;)

    I have cut wood a few days while owning these gloves...i used my duct taped, holes in the fingers pairs instead. These are currently on "fancy" duty. I use them to bring a few pieces into the house or to refill the kindling bucket. I kind of like them!

    Perhaps I should look at a new saw, maybe something a little larger??? (please...please wife...don't read this...please)

    Thanks for the offer...but they are growing on me. Perhaps if I owned one of each saw...it would be fine!

    I wonder if his wife is smart enough to go buy Husqvarna gloves instead of a Stihl saw :rolleyes:

    Wife got me a Stihl file guide kit for Christmas, tried it on the Jonsey and works well enough but probably would do better on a Stihl saw. Now there is a 066 with a 20" and 24" bar for sale locally on Craigs List....hmmmmm!

    hmmm can't hurt to take a look at the saw??? My problem is, if I head out to a Craigslist hunt, most of the time I come home with the prize....but I am learning with age to say no thanks.

    Your Dad has good tastes and your husky will run better than ever while wearing those gloves but Stihl not as well as a Stihl wood run .
