The Husqvarna 137 is our smallest traditional chain saw and is intended for homeowner and part-time use. Our main focus, as always, is on the user and the work environment. Our demands on safety, function, ergonomics and reliability are as important as our demands on our tools for forestry professionals. Very easy to start thanks to a new spring-assisted starter mechanism. Standard-equipped with our LowVib chain.

Summary:
Unless they redesign the oil pump I would not recommend this chainsaw. There are plenty of other chainsaws out there without this problem.

Strengths:
Light weight, easy to start

Weaknesses:
Big problems with oil flow to bar. Keeps getting blocked and pump needs replacing. Must be a design fault as I have heard of a lot of other people with the same problem.

Summary:
Best Bang For Your $200! This was a birthday present for me about 5 years ago and it still runs great and starts easily with virtually no maintenence.You have to keep the rpms up with this saw. It will not cut if the chain isn't super sharp.It has a small chain and it is easy to oversharpen it to the point where it is not usable.Biggest problem is the flimsy top handle(hasn't broke though)making it impossible to flush cut stumps any bigger than 6inches in diameter, engine would have enough power to do maybe 12 inches.Lightweight but not the lightest.Good fuel capacity.Only problem had was a fuel line than popped off the carb, easy fix though, just popped it back on. Very long life air filter but wish you could access it without a screwdriver.Chain tensioning screw right next to muffler, making it easy to burn yourself.Seems to run somewhat lean at idle until very warm? Very well balanced.Small body for a 36cc engine.Overal a great saw.

Strengths:
No primer ball to bust open, way better quality than the 2010 Husky saws sold at Lowes, high quality switches, best power (at the time) for a $200 saw, quieter than any other saw I've owned (new and old) atleast at idle, easy to start,no exhaust smell, no cheap coil spring anti vibe system

Weaknesses:
Narrow chain, somewhat flimsy bar, all plastic top handle, somewhat recessed chain oil cap easy to get dirt in, leaks chain oil like a siv (tank itself not leaking)when sitting for even a half hour

Summary:
I got this saw free when I bought a wood splitter thru a promo. My initial impression was the saw was just some cheapo gadget to throw in to sweeten the pot for anyone purchasing that particular wood splitter. Once I began to use the saw I fell in love with the weight of the saw. My other saw is pretty big, approx 14.5lbs without the 20" bar. I began to use the saw for limbing and then began to use it for everything short of the main tree. The bar is not designed for larger diameter wood and it is pretty narrow so if I cut wood too big the bar seems to heat up and the saw will not cut strait and will begen to drift to one side. Just keep in mind this is a small saw and wasnt designed for industrial use. Its a great limbing saw for any wood and softwoods would be better suited for larger diameter cutting.

Strengths:
Easy to start, easy to handle, nice and light compared to my other saw. The chain is easy to sharpen. The air filter seems to stay very clean.

Weaknesses:
The chain tightener is not user friendly, and chaging a chain is should be easier. But I replaced my bar with a Oregon bar with a tightener built into the bar ($16).

Summary:
Great saw for the money will last forever. I only use premium non-ethynol gas and synthetic 50:1 mix.

Strengths:
This saw has lasted 5 years of constant abuse and I love it. I have cut every type of american wood with it and it rips away. I use it every weekend cutting 2-3 cords of hickory and oak without any problems from felling to delimbing trees for firewood. It runs neck and neck with a Stihl MS250 for two hundred dollars less. It is not a junk saw at all.

Weaknesses:
The retraction mechanism for the pull start is weak.

I will have same problems. he is looking for an after manufacture carb. to put in it. WASTE of MONEY!

Summary:
Bought this from Lowes and have regretted it since. Probably spent >$500 on repairs, since it goes into the shop after each time I am able to get it to start, which is seldom. I am writing this before going to Home Depot to buy a different brand.

Strengths:
None

Weaknesses:
Won't start Won't stay running Leaks chain oil like a sieve I could go on and on
