Husqvarna 435 advice

Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone, as you'll probably see, I'm new here. 

Just a quick query, how does the Husqvarna 435 compare to Stihl of the same 'ish price tag?

I've used older Husqvarna saws, but a long time ago. Just been using Stihl chainsaws recently.

It's for occasional use, no heavy logging but obviously I need it to generally cover a range of basic functions. 

I'm looking at a 'new in box', factory sealed example. I must admit I'm tempted to wait for a second hand Stihl, but would appreciate your thoughts.

Many thanks everyone.

A friend has a 435, he dosnt cut anywhere near as much as I do but its quite a nice little saw as H/O saws go. 40cc 15" bar outboard clutch & runs .325 chain

 

Radmores website is till showing the offer I think you are discussing

Thanks Peatff, I'll look at that as an option. Makes sense. 

Are the new Husqvarna products as tough as I remember the older ones being? 

As I mentioned, I've just been using Stihl of late. 

Everyone will have their own take on this, dependant on personal experience and anecdotal evidence, but I guess that's why we're on forums, to pick each other's brains!

Oh, and something else that the forum gave rise to, thoughts on those 'extras' that some Husqvarna dealers have on offer (helmet, gloves).

I haven't seen any new Stihl saws with any bonus bits and bobs. A carry case would be nice !?!

I must add as a footnote I'd much prefer a better saw than be swayed by any peripherals. Though it's always nice to be offered!

You can get a 135 for £168. Practically the same saw but with 3/8 chain. 

Do this. Its the same saw but without the transparent fuel tank bit

I think very few manufacturers products are as tough and durable as they used to be, I like 3 series Husqvarnas because they lack the complicated electronics & whilst some go for years others are problematic  - the less electronics the better IMO.

If you're after something better in terms of durability on a budget I'd go for a Dolmar 420 - Do I get comission yet, Shavey? :D
