Bought this a 435 with a 16 inch bar at Lowes to trim and fell trees around the house. It will be used for firewood and christmas tress as well. Day one this saw was amazing. Neighbors didn't complain about the noise and there was little to no vibration. Took care of all the tasks that needed to be done. I will never buy a saw without the Husqvarna name on it again. It took a little while to get it started the first time but that was more the operator than the saw.

Once it runs this saw does the job and idles very well.
The problem I have had is starting when cold and when its hot after about 15 minutes restarting is a real chore.
I had it back to the shop where I purchased it for both the hard starting and high throttle power loss and they adjusted the carburetor but the starting problem persists.

great little saw
This saw is not a pro saw but it holds its own, I have cut some big trees that it cut through like butter.. so I would recommend this saw for shure...

Overall, this is a good product, relatively light, easy to handle and cuts very well. My main beef is that it is hard to start. I think there should be a convenient way to control the throttle when starting.

Great saw for average use
Saw has good balance and cuts well. The plate you put your foot on to hold the saw in place while cranking is a little tricky. As stated it takes a few pulls to start but overall well satisfied with product.

This is a GREAT little saw.
I have a larger saw but wanted a small home owner saw for trimming. After using the 435 Husky I started using it for my farm duties. I cleared a 1 acre lot of about 100 trees ranging from 6" to 24" diameter with the 435 and it did a great job. It is all the saw most homeowners will ever need.
Thanks Husky for building great products.

Better than others in the same price range.
I did a fair amount of shopping around before deciding on this saw. It seemed to be a better value when compared to others in the same price range. As promised, it does start easily, has sufficient power, it's light and manuverable, and vibration free. It seems to be well made and appears to be easy to service. I've only used it for 10 to 12 hours, but so far has met my needs nicely.
