This is my first chain saw, and my only complaint is the directions. I feel they sort of assumed one has used a chainsaw before. Definitely not quick and easy directions for a first time chainsaw-er. Difficult to figure out how to tighten the bar, the amount of bar and chain oil it needed, etc. The directions were just hard to decipher. Other than the directions, I am extremely pleased with the chainsaw. Once I got it running, it was easy to use. Sliced through trees like butter. The maneuverability is good, and it isn't too heavy - even for my wife. It's really easy to start. As far as chainsaws go, it's pretty awesome.

Worked great until it didn't
I bought this chainsaw in the spring of 2012. I've used it some and was really happy with it. It is light weight, pretty easy to start and cut through would really well, that is until today.
Today I was cutting some wood and a half hour into my work today, the blade quite spinning. i would pull the trigger, the engine would rev, but the blade would not spin.
I took it apart, cleaned it, put it back together, still no luck.
Maybe you will have better luck than I did with it. I loved the saw until it quit working. If was still working I'd have marked it a 5 star rating.

Awesome little saw
Purchased the 435 as a limb saw to go with my 353. You can't go wrong with a husky. The saw is lightweight, starts good, and cuts small diameter wood like a champ. Had to get the carb adjusted, but that was taken care of free of charge by Husqvarna. Great saw!

This chainsaw is as smooth as butter! I have spoken with a professional tree service and the guy I talked to swears by his 435, as I do too now! Thanks Husky!

model 435 is a great value
We had a large ornamental pear tree come down in a severe thunderstorm on a Saturday afternoon in July. Couldn't find a chainsaw to rent the following Sunday morning so i purchased the Husqvarna 435 at a big box store.
After looking at other brands with inferior power and construction, this Husqvarna 435 16" gas powered saw with all of its features was a great value for the price.
Setup and starting was very easy and we used it continually for 6 hours that first day and it performed very well. We've used it several times since, and even though my wife didn't think we would ever need to own a chainsaw, even she's pleased.
I would recommend this chainsaw for homeowners like myself.

Best saw I have
Definitely is a great saw. Alot safer than the farmboss and built better. This saw has changed me from stihl and shindaiwa products for my landscaping company. I cut firewood every year and this has been the best saw I ever purchased

First Husqvarna product I have owned, much better quality than the other chainsaw I owned. Easy to start and use, doesn't vibrate my arms off like my previous one did.
