The 235 delivers 1.8 horsepower, making it well-suited for medium-duty jobs, such as pruning and domestic cutting. The engine features Husqvarna's special X-Torq technology, which reduces emission levels by up to 60 percent and fuel consumption by up to 30 percent, so you'll be able to harness the power of a gas-powered chainsaw without having to worry about heavy pollutant output.

The engine uses a three-piece crankshaft, which has been forged and compressed for superior durability. Also, the chainsaw's centrifugal air cleaning system helps preserve engine life by removing harmful debris before it reaches the filter.

With the 235, you won't have to waste precious minutes trying to start the engine. The chainsaw uses a combined choke/stop control, which allows for easy engine starting and reduces the risk of flooding.

Husqvarna's LowVib anti-vibration dampeners effectively absorb vibration, sparing your arms and hands from added fatigue and allowing you to work longer and more comfortably. Other features include an inertia activated chain brake that helps reduce the likelihood of injury due to kickback, and an air purge function that removes air from the carburetor and fuel system for easier starting. It's backed by a 2-year limited warranty.

This was the least expensive 16" I could find. Also the build quality gets cheaper and cheaper every time I buy a new chain saw. I had a WoodShark that was as cheap as I would put up with and did not want to replace it with the newer Poulan model. Husqvarna's build quality is decent so it has sufficed in that department. This saw ran perfectly out of the box but needed to have the low fuel adjustment altered in warmer temperatures. You need a special splined screwdriver to do this or there is the hack of tapping a piece of 1/4 inch steel tubing over it.The later method worked well enough. The choke is designed to shut off by squeezing the throttle so you can't accidentally leave it on. If the carb is adjusted perfectly this is not a problem but allowing to leave the choke on is better. Leave it to the EPA to make a chainsaw harder to use. It does not have the tool-less tension adjuster but I don't believe that it is a deal breaker. I did not experience any chain oiling problems that other purchasers have stated. The oil tank is a little too small so you just have to not completely fill the fuel tank so the fuel ends up running out before the oil. This saw has about the same power as the poulan I replaced it with. If you want a inexpensive 16" saw of acceptable build quality you should be satisfied.

I have read some of the reviews of this saw and I am left scratching my head at some of them. First of all, a 34.4cc saw is only designed for smaller jobs. I purchased this saw for my girlfriend for Valentines Day. I'm romantic that way. Anyway, I used it to cut some trees down that were around 30 inches in diameter, with no problems whatsoever. You must blast it full throttle before going in, um like the directions say. I also cut up a dead fall that was huge, again with no problem at all.

As for the oiling problems: again, the directions will tell you to look for oil being finely flung off the tip of the saw. If it doesn't do this, then don't use it! Check the tank to be sure there's oil in it. If you're using it in cold weather, the bar oil will thicken, making the bar oil pretty much worthless. Use a thicker motor oil in cold weather. If I'm not mistaken, the directions will say just that! Look at me...I can read, huh?

Husqvarna's are far and away the best equipment you can get for the price. I have husqvarna everything: riding mower, push mower (Honda engine), blower, weed whacker, and the saw that I got myself, er, my girlfriend for Valentines. She had an old Poulan Pro with a 42cc that I took for myself. It had very little hours on it, but a jacked up carburetor and auto-oiler with a leaky tube. Anyway, Husqvarna makes the best 2 cycle in the world. That's not just my opinion either. Furthermore, they are built in the good ol' USA. However it is a ritual with starting them. But the end result speaks for itself: a beautiful yard.

Cuts great if you don't push it. Much lighter than my son's Sachs Dollmer. Terrible hard to start- I'm 65 yrs old and by time I get the saw started I'm almost to tired from pulling the starter to use the saw.
Other than that it's great

Most kept little dirty secret about gas chainsaws in evaluations, comparisons, and recommendations is the fuel system. It is very common that after storing your chainsaw the next year it won't start. 99% of the time is because the fuel line got porous or rotten due to ethanol gasoline mixed with fuel stabilizer or just damage by age, by weather, or poor fuel line plastic quality . Some chainsaws like Poulan and Craftman and even some old Husqvarnas have a relative simple access to the fuel lines so that you can replace them by just removing three of four screws on the top, taking the top lead off and voilà the lines are there for you to pull out with your needle pliers. The Husqvarna 235 does not, the fuel lines are so boxed up and so hidden, that you will have to remove the top handle, the left and right plastic covers, the triggers and spring mechanism, another plastic box that holds the air filter holder and the air filter box holder itself. I had seen Youtube videos about replacing fuel lines on some other chains saw brands and it was not as hard as on the Husqvarna 235. I guess that is why the company discontinued it (Sears still sells it). If you own one and engage in such undertaking (Replacing the fuel lines), you will need also a 8mm box end midget wrench to remove some screws, lots of patience, and to take pictures of every step you followed along the way so that you can put it back together. If you take it to a professional to get it serviced, the repair fee is probably going to be double or triple that is if you can convince them to do it. Another alternative is to take your loss, trash it, and buy some other brand. The best brand on gas chainsaws is Echo. That is the one that the professional guys that do gardens use. On electric chainsaws the WORX WG304.1 Chain Saw 18-Inch 4 HP 15.0 Amp is the best. I own one and it is amazing how powerful and sturdy it is. It comes with an incredibly lasting and sharp Oregon chainsaw chain.

absolute piece of junk, had it about 5 months used it about 3 times for small jobs. It never wants to start no matter what I do, when I do get it started I better never let it stop or it could be another week or two before I can get it to run again,

I have been cutting wood for over 25 years had a stihl and it got stolen replaced it with this heap of junk because I was given an Amazon GC and nobody will even take it when I try to give it away. Saving my money for another Stihl best chain saw I ever used, invest in a Stihl. This husky is worthless period.
