Weighing just 9.2 lbs and featuring a maximum power speed of 9,000 rpm, the Husqvarna 435 delivers a lot of power considering its small footprint. Similar to the Husqvarna 445, due to its lightweight design and compactness, it is very easy to maneuver and will probably be most popular with consumers who are looking for an efficient all-round saw for moderate use.
The 435 is powered by a 2.2 HP X-Torq Engine, and has a maximum power speed of 9,000 rpm. Therefore, while not being a pro saw it can still handle most jobs you throw at it efficiently, including cutting down large trees.
As is common with all Husqvarna chainsaws that feature X-Torq engines, the 435 is designed to lower fuel consumption whilst also reducing exhaust emissions.
While it may not be quite as gas efficient as other chainsaws on the market, especially when compared to other models manufactured by Husqvarna, the 435 will still give you hours of use on a full tank of gas.
The fuel tank has a volume of 12.5 fl oz, and the fuel consumption stands at 652 g/k Wh. It’s also nice to see that there is a fuel level indicator, which surprisingly isn’t all that commonly seen on chainsaws.
The Husqvarna 435 has been designed in such a way to ensure that starting it up is as easy as possible. The air purge function works to remove air form the fuel system and carburetor. And the combined choke/stop control is a welcome feature, as it means that there is a reduced risk of engine flooding, as well as allowing for easier starting.
All this results in a chainsaw that will start up on its first pull, although when it’s very warm or very cold outside a few more pulls may be required.
Husqvarna generally do a better job than others in making sure that their chainsaws deliver a comfortable user experience, and the 435 is no exception. If you’ve ever experienced fatigue due to the vibration of a saw when using it, then you are sure to appreciate the LowVib system, which does a good job in reducing vibration levels.
Safety is sometimes overlooked by consumers in favor of price; however, Husqvarna have included an inertia activated chain brake into the 435 system, which significantly reduces the likelihood of injury which is common with kickback.
The handle has also been ergonomically designed to make sure that the saw is comfortable to hold without giving you blisters, as well as easy to maneuver. For example, the handle has been asymmetrically designed, features a soft inlay, as well as an ergonomic trigger.
In line with other chainsaws, the Husqvarna 435 features a sound pressure level at operators ear at 102 dB, and sound power level at 114 dB.
Some consumers tend to be so impressed with the power and price of a chainsaw that they often forget just how vital maintenance is. Fortunately, the Husqvarna 435 is very easy to maintain.
For a start, the centrifugal air cleaning system works to remove larger dust and debris particles before they are able to reach the air filter. This not only results in reduced air filter cleanings but also means that the engine is likely to last longer than other models which lack this feature.
Changing the air filter is a simple process due to its quick-release mechanism. The snap-lock cylinder cover is designed to save time when cleaning and changing spark plugs. Finally, the side-mounted chain tensioner gives you easier access to the chain tensioning device.
The 435 is backed by a 2-year warranty – something that is standard for Husqvarna chainsaws.

Husqvarna 435 User Reviews
Users have been impressed with the 435’s power, with comments ranging from “it quickly cuts through live wood and hardened dead wood like hot butter,” to “it cut through a tree with a circumference of 55 inches in a few seconds with no stalling or bogging down,” “runs/cuts beautifully in any position.”
The saw’s ease of startup has also been praised: “quickly starts either from cold or hot restart,” “startup is 2-5 pulls when cold, and 1 pull when hot,” as well as its comfort and build quality: “should last the average homeowner years,” “I have beat the heck out of this saw for 6 months now, and it still runs like new,” “was pleasantly surprised how low-vibration this saw was compared to older models.”
However, a few users have also found some things to complain about, ranging from the carburetor needing minor adjustment right out the box, and the chainsaw oiler not being adjustable, to one user with an issue with the bar wearing out quickly.

Anything Else You Should Know?
The 435 features felling marks for precision cutting (ensures that you can line up your cuts correctly), as well as a forged three-piece crankshaft, which explains why the 435 can cut through thick, large trees in spite of its lightweight design.
There isn’t much else to add; one user puts it best when he says, “It is not a pro saw, but it is a high quality saw that should last the average homeowner years. ”
