The three-piece crankshaft of the Husqvarna 272Xp is designed for high performance and stability. The 272Xp features a magnesium crankcase that provides added durability while the front handgrip is angled to make cutting easier. The 272Xp also has Husqvarna LowVib technology, which utilizes anti-vibration absorbers to quell vibration during cutting. This chain saw is lightweight and has high power potential, which provides rapid RPM acceleration to enhance cutting capabilities. The 272Xp also features the Husqvarna Smart Start, reducing starting attempts and starter cord resistance by 40 percent. For simplified engine cleaning and maintenance, the snap-lock cylinder cover provides easy access to the air filter and engine components. This chain saw doesn't feature the air injection centrifugal technology of other Husqvarna chain saw models. The air injection centrifugal system filters out debris particles before they enter engine components, providing cleaner and more reliable engine operation and reducing the frequency of air filter cleanings.
