A little difficult to start even when warm. Will be interesting to see how it will start in cold weather. Areas where you put your foot needs to bigger for my 12XW shoe and if I were wearing boots or safety shoes they would not fit in this area.

The chainsaw performs as expected. I rated the durability average since I did not have an N/A option. I have only used the chainsaw for 3 trees so I do not feel I can truly rate the durability just yet. All in all I like the saw and plan to keep it around for years to come. The only complaint I have is the idle. Maybe it just needs a tune but it stalls mid job at idle and can be a pain to get started again.

This is my first Husqvarna. Actually, it is my first chainsaw. So far, so good. Starts easily and runs great. It has performed every task well.

Good saw, lightweight but with adequate power. Uses very little fuel. Only saw that I have owned that actually idles ... saves a lot of time without need for restart. Only complaint is that I cannot put my foot through the handle as recommended for starting ... average size foot/ moot won't fit as required.
I would buy the saw again. Clearly Husqvarna provides quality.

I bought this chainsaw just to do little stuff and to keep in my truck for hunting season. Its perfect, has enough power to cut bigger stuff but light enough to do little stuff.

240 Chainsaw X Torq
I recently purchased this saw to replace a Poulan Pro saw that was only 3 yers old . I checked the Stihl saws before purchasing the Husqvarna , I must say took out of the box followed the Quick Start Guide and by the 3rd pull it fired wright up went and cut a small tree down from a bad wind storm from a couple weeks ago .. trimmed a tree for a neighbor no issues love the saw .. I only do light work around the house cut small trees down use the wood for camping . I am currenlty in need of a new trimmer .. strongly considering a Husqvarna not sure of what model yet but I am sold on the Quality and easy use of the saw so far. I have about 6 trees to cut down in the next couple weeks for a friend and a family member

Good value for the money.
Good value for the money, but since my review text is too short, I need to add word I guess??? so maybe marginal value for the money???.
