There are an increasing number of counterfeit "Husqvarna" products sold online. Counterfeit goods are a global problem impacting many businesses and consumers.
Chainsaws in particular are a target for illegal reproduction, and many pose a significant threat to consumer safety and health since counterfeiters do not pay attention to manufacturing processes, safety features or industry standards.
In many cases, it is very difficult for you to identify a counterfeit product from the outside. Inside is where the differences matter, but you may not find this out until it is too late. However, the quality of counterfeit chainsaws has improved and at times it may be difficult to establish whether a chainsaw is in fact a counterfeit. To help make the distinction between counterfeit and genuine chainsaws, it is important to consider the point of sale, product appearance and origin.
