Husqvarnas 3120XP is designed specifically for challenging forestry work in the toughest conditions. Available with either a 91cm or a 106cm guide bar and a .404″ pitch chain, the 3120XP is driven by a powerful 118.8cc two-stroke petrol engine.
Chainsaws have a multitude of uses. Actually, that’s not entirely true as chainsaws are mostly just used for cutting things. Even then, with the exception of a few ice sculptors, chainsaws are primarily used for cutting wood. Husqvarna’s 3120XP is even more limited in terms of the scope of its application, as it is a dedicated rear handle felling saw designed specifically for the most challenging forestry work in the toughest cutting conditions. One of the most powerful saws in the world, you would not, for example, be well advised to use the 3120XP for chopping firewood, DIY or other light household tasks. If, however, you are looking to cut down a very large tree, the 3120XP is just the machine you are looking for. It is, after all, very, very good at cutting things.
“What makes this saw so good at cutting things then?”, I hear you ask! Shall we start with its mighty 118.8cc two-stroke petrol engine? By some distance the most powerful engine used in any of Husqvarna’s many chainsaws, the 3120XP is capable of delivering a maximum power output of 6.2kW at an impressive 9,000RPM. This, along with a top chain speed of 20.1m/s, allows the 3120XP to cut through tough material with ease, saving significant time and effort when felling larger trees compared to less powerful machines. For added convenience, moreover, the 3120XP also features a Smart Start® system (which reduces starter cord resistance by up to 40%) and a high capacity 1.25 litre fuel tank which allows you to work for longer without having to stop and refuel. Available as standard with either a 91cm (36”) or 106cm (42”) guide bar and a heavy duty .404” pitch chain (please call or e-mail to specify the preferred bar/chain combination for your order), the 3120XP would be the saw you want by your side were you attempting to take down a rainforest. Even if your ambitions are slightly more limited than this, this potent saw is perfect for any intensive cutting work which demands a machine capable of running a longer bar, with exceptional results every time ensured by the inclusion of an adjustable oil pump to regulate chain lubrication.
Fitted with an effective inertia-activated chain brake to protect against hazardous kickback events, the 3120XP is also a surprisingly user-friendly machine given its immense power. The ergonomically designed handles, intuitive controls and innovative LowVib® anti-vibration system, for example, work together to ensure complete comfort and outstanding ease of operation, even over prolonged periods of use. A well-balanced design, moreover, means that the 3120XP handles excellently, while features such as the quick-release air filter and cover help to facilitate routine maintenance and cleaning for reassuring long term reliability. All of this, of course, makes cutting stuff that little bit easier, thus further enhancing the 3120XP’s aforementioned status as a machine which is very, very good at cutting things.
Finally, as this is a machine designed for tackling the very toughest forestry work, sturdiness is a must. This is why the 3120XP is constructed with a forged three-piece crankshaft and a durable magnesium crankcase, providing excellent protection against impact, abrasion and corrosion for a longer lasting, more dependable service life. Few saws, then, are better suited to challenging cutting in hostile conditions, and any professional forester/arboriculturalist would do well to have a saw like this to hand when felling the largest trees. In summary, and if you take anything away from reading this, please remember the following; Husqvarna’s 3120XP is really very, very, very good at cutting things.
