Husqvarna 327PT5S review

The 327pt5s is a gas powered pole saw from Husqvarna packed with some unique design settings that have certainly pleased consumers around the web if feedback is anything to go by.

Featuring a much larger than average fully extended reach of 13 feet, this could be the most convenient solution yet for trimming, pruning and sawing in and around the garden. What’s more, the heavy duty nature of it means it will most likely last longer than your average cordless and electric options.

Features and specifications

The Husqvarna 327pt5s is certainly on the higher end on our budget scale and for good reason.  The technology included makes your work that much more convenient with specs that cover adjustable lubrication, and the changing of the pole length. If you are looking for something in the mid tier price level, you may want to look at our review of the Husqvarna 128LDX. That is yet another example of a good quality design which makes otherwise difficult gardening tasks simple. Even if you are after something in the lower end of the price scale to compare this model with, why not have a look at the TrimmerPlus PS720 from Troy-Bilt.

There are certainly competitors on the market that do the same thing. However, Husqvarna have gone the extra mile here and produced a high quality gas pole saw that is efficient and easy to handle.

It has a total length of thirteen foot which when combined with user height and perhaps, a step ladder, reaching those higher branches should not be too much of a problem.

Whats more because it’s powered by gas, you will find the power is a lot more consistent like the Remington RM2599 Maverick and the Poulan Pro pp258tp. You will be able to prune and trim that much easier than some other variants on the market. Overhangs of bushes are a breeze and high hanging branches that need pruning back are a quick task.

It also has a built in air purging feature that cleans the air from the fuel system and carburetor, which makes the start up nice and easy.

Lifting and moving it around should be relatively simple as it weighs just eighteen pounds. Sometimes heavier options can cause unnecessary stress to your arms which causes you to tire quicker, so this is a welcome feature. The more lightweight the better, it’s far more convenient to reach those higher branches without worrying about the extra strain on your muscles.

What are consumers saying?

There is plenty of positive feedback to be found around the web. There is a common theme regarding the reach length and lightness of the product. Some appreciate the fuel tank capacity, whilst others are hardly surprised at the quality as Husqvarna are well known for their reliability.

We always suggest to our readers to do further research on top of what you find here, and looking at these ratings is always a good starting point for gaining a fair understanding of a products capabilities, both good and bad.

The bottom line

The 327PT5S pole saw has everything you need for your cutting and general trimming tasks. Good power, solid reliability, and effective, consistent cuts. Plenty of fuel capacity and simple start up is the icing on the cake. The only downside is that it may be out of some peoples budget level. However, it is important to remember, sometimes quality you do have to pay for, and this particular model certainly has the qualities needed to be your go to pruning tool.
