I rarelt write reviews but felt compelled after the final day of using this saw. It is difficult to start and will not stay running. It leaks bar oil all over my garage. The only reason I gave it good marks for durability is because I threw it over an embankment into the woods and it remained intact. Run from this one.

An Awesome, Dependable, Easy Starting Chainsaw
This chainsaw is very easy to start, it is very dependable and works perfectly. It runs as long as you need it to and always starts with one or two pulls.
I love it!

435 is a Great Saw for the $
I've had this saw over 3 years and have ran it hard. I have many saws but prefer this one for pruning and bucking logs 4-10 inches but can cut 12-13inch diameter with ease(especially with 18 in bar and chain,Although I perfer saw with shorter bar and chain, light weight, easy to handle and most of all easy to maintain, I checked my air filter multiple times 1st year expecting it to be filthy, not at all it was clean as a whistle. Starts up 2-3 pulls even when cold and hot, this is a great investment as I have cut over 25 chords with this saw. Light enough for wife to handle with 14in B&C. Thanks husqvarna

UNDER POWERED BUT DEPENDABLE
I have been using this saw for 3 years straight and fires right up every time. I have sawed up 12 large trees and around 20 medium trees and I don't even keep track of the small ones. It is 100% dependable. The only complants would be it started leaking oil out on my garage floor after about a year and it seems to be less powerful than many other saws of the same size. It blasts thru anything 12" or less and boggs down on anything larger and takes a lot of rocking and backing off to get thru the larger stuff. It also does not have an oiler adjustment and mine is set too low causing me to sharpen chain every couple tanks of fuel. I get 2 tanks of fuel to 1 tank of oil.

Medium Household Usage
I've had this product for a little over a year, used it on a dozen occasions, and have had very good success. I was apprehensive at first due to the previous reviews. However, I've had no issues with starting, operating, or servicing this piece of equipment. It is a bit under-powered and due to this, the projects take a bit longer. But, overall, Husqvarna makes a very good product and this one is no exception.

Hard Starting Husqvarna 435
Really a well made saw. Just wouldn't start. Took it to two local Husqvarna repair shops in Jacksonville, Fl. Got it back both times and still hard starting, and would jerk your hand back while trying to start. Finally got tired of fooling with incompetence and looked at it myself. Found the ignition module to flywheel gap at over 1/8 inch. After setting this gap to 0.01" the saw starts great and runs fine. Shame local shops were paid by Husky twice and couldn't fix it.
