Love the saw!
But the chain brake broke after 1 hour usage.
Lowe's replaced it since it was less than 30 days old.
The replacement has been running great!
They backed the product and that's why I'll buy another Husqvarna!

The best chain saw I have ever owned. Its designed for pruning. However, it will do just about anything you ask it to do.

Good over all
The 435 X-Torq has done everything I need it to. Most of what I do is taking down trees in my back yard, big and little.
The only trouble I have is starting. It takes a bit to start it. Sometimes, after I use it for a while, then shut it down, it wont want to start back up. It's frustrating and tiresome.
Once it's started, though, look out! It's one tough chainsaw.

Performs perfectly for my needs. I'm a carpenter and use it for cuttting framing members in a speedy fashion, which it does very proficiently! Most important to me; ease of use, weight, power and durability! For cutting trees and such I would probably opt for a larger saw, but I don't do a tremendous amount of that to neccesitate the added expense

Well balanced saw
I have two of these saws. I have had no problems. They are easy to start, and fill with gas and oil. The saw has plenty of power to cut medium size logs. I have 14 inch bars on the saws. The balance is good for one hand operation.

Lightweight, good price. A bit disappointed in that it's hard to start, both when cold or hot.
