I purchased the Husqvarna 435 at Lowe's in Katy, Texas.
I do Chainsaw Carvings as a hobby. The 435 is a great chainsaw
has some great features on it.
I have owned Sthil and Poulan and this unit has alot of power and is lightweight.
Would recommend this 435 Husqvarna to anyone that wants to get the job done quickly.

Bought a real saw
This is my first real saw to own. First use fired right up. Cuts great, feels good. Cut through 12" diameter beech like a dream. This is the best i've used. I would put it up against a Stihl anyday

Happy with it
Very cold natured. Hard to start after it sits for a while. It is lightweight and easy to handle. Once it gets going it gets the job done. Jim- Texas

Great but not perfect
I just picked this saw up about 3 weeks ago and so far I am very pleased. It actually does start as easy as they advertise but warm-engine starting can be a bit tricky. Seems to me like mine starts up easier when it's cold than when it's nice and warm. Kind of opposite of what you'd think but it's not a big deal. My dealer recommended against getting an 18" bar, claiming that he has had complaints about a 40cc being under powered for 18" but I went with it anyways for that extra range. Yes, it does get a bit bogged down at times when I'm cutting with the full bar but I have no problem slowing down the little it actually happens. Otherwise, the saw has very low vibration, is lightweight and the ergonomics are flawless - plus, no one can deny that bright orange body looks so much better than Stihl grey!

husky 435 christmas gift
bought new and it worked great , used premix fuel because i will be using it once in a while, one minor issue is the bar sprocket got stuck and had to use wd40 to loosen and grease

Excellent chain saw
I bought this chain saw based on my fathers history with his Husqvarna. He has had his for years so I knew that they are durable. It took only minutes to cut up a fallen tree in my back yard. It was basically and fill it up and go.

I have used alot of saws in my past, I like how easy it start, and the balance of the saw. Has a great deal of power, This is a great little saw, My only issue with this saw , It was missing the Spike Bumper. The box was sealed . I called customer service, they were very nice and said they would ship the part. #9317-0003 I have not recieved this part as of yet. I am confident it will arrive. I very happy with this saw.

Great saw to have around the house
I recieved a 16" Poulan for a gift so I took it to Lowes and exchanged it for the Husky 435 after reading the Poulan reviews. Started after 3 pulls of the cord and works and runs great. I've only had the saw a few weeks but so far it's great!
