Which is hotter the Husqvarna or The Jonsered?

Jonsereds are “hotter” than Husqvarnas. Personally, it would be Jonsered if it were between 2172 or 372xp or the 2188 vs 390xp. I dont like the look of the high top husq over the Jonsereds. If you go with the Husq…. opt for the 365 (saves you some coin and comes with the low top cover).
