“There is a demand for a product that is very user friendly and can be used by a wider range of customers – from those in the tree-care industry to farmers and municipalities,” said Pam Everett, business development manager, Husqvarna. 

X-Torq Engine Technology 

Equipped with an X-Torq engine, the T435 has the power to deliver high torque with up to 20 percent less fuel consumption and up to 60 percent less emissions. 

Double Eyelet 

T435 is equipped with two clamping hooks instead of one. This double eyelet gives the user the choice to fit the saw in the most suitable way in the harness, while using both hands in other work. Many users of other tree-care chainsaws have experienced inconvenient hits on their legs when hanging the saws via a carbine hook on the harness. Now it is very easy to connect the chainsaw to the harness and it has a stable position on the side. 

Easy to use 

• Equipped with Smart Start®, resistance in the starter cord is reduced by up to 40 percent. With the auto-return stop switch, the machine is always ready to be started. Finally, the starter handle has a steady four-finger grip, which smaller machines often lack. 
• Tree-care chainsaws are commonly designed with the two filler caps (chain oil and fuel) next to each other, inviting mistakes. On T435, Husqvarna has separated the two caps, one on each side of the machine. 
• Chain catchers often get worn out after a while. With T435, you do not have to change the whole plastic casing; the chain catcher is easily changed separately. It also has chain tensioning from the side, preventing the cuts and burns of older models with frontal chain tensioning. 

Ergonomics 

T435 has its center of mass close to the handle, which makes it easier to control and creates a great balance. It is also equipped with LowVib®, a steel spring construction that significantly reduces the vibrations of the handle.
