I did not use it very much last year and this year I decide to uset but it die on me and won't start, but before that to many pulls to get it going.

Plenty of punch to do the job!
Just bought this saw and have only used it for relatively small stuff for now but that's exactly why I got it. I have a little over an acre that requires tree pruning and the occasional cutting for some fire wood for an outdoor oven/pit. I won't be felling trees with this unit. I wanted something that was designed for pruning the large scotch pines in my front yard while on a ladder, hence a one handed saw. I could have gone with a pole saw but then I would need another unit to cut my fire wood. This little guy came with the 14" blade that cut through everything like butter straight out of the box. No mods required. Love it!

Comparable to the 338
Saw is light, has a great balanceto it, cuts fast and smooth as compared to the 338xpt but is at a more affordable price range and is worth every penny!

Lightweight and size ideal for the homeowner
I purchased this saw because I have thirteen mature pecan trees that frequently drop limbs. Brought it home, read the manual, serviced it and it fired right up. Usage has been lite up to this point, but for each time I called upon it it started with no problems. I did notice some seepage of bar oil when the saw is stored. Overall very happy with the results. This is my third Husqvarna purchase since moving into our new home. So far no disappointments. I will be back with an annual review next fall.

Great saw all around
Awesome saw to use whether in a bucket, on a ladder, on the ground. Lightweight, easy to start, Husqvarna dependable. I own 2 yr old Rancher 455 20" bar, 10 yr old Model 50 16" bar, and this new T435 16" bar completes my set. Dependable, dependable, dependable what more can I say. Husqvarna for life.

good job for the price
Bought this chainsaw to cut 8 bundles of slab wood of various woods and thicknesses. Saw performed great. Used 3 chains but i have cut about 6 cords of wood. Started easily. On occasion would shut down but found if I cleaned out it ran well.

October Winter Storm
just purchased a Husqvarna 435 due to a lot of research on the item .. plus the real need for a chainsaw after the October winter storm that hit. took down a lot of trees and limbs. I own a bow saw, but that was going to be too much work and I'm not that young anymore .. 53! This chainsaw felt better than the cheaper models in my hands .. a lot more balanced would be a good word. Cut through some pretty large oak trees like it was butter.
Highly recommend this product to any homeowner that needs to do some clean-up and serious tree work.

great little saw
bought this saw when my larger, more expensive chainsaw needed repair- again. needed a chainsaw immediately and did not want to spend alot of money.
the 435 works great! felled, stripped and cut up two large cherry trees with ease!
the bigger saw is fixed now- but think i'll be using the husqvarna. wish i'd bought a larger husqvarna to begin with rather than the "super premium" turkey i'm stuck with.
