The 235E 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.
Durable Engine Built for Long Life
The 235E's engine has been built to withstand years of use. It 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.
Easy, Effortless Startup
With the 235E, 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. It also has a specially optimized fuel pump, which keeps the fuel lines clear and helps facilitate startup.
Ergonomic Design Reduces User Fatigue
The 235E has a lightweight frame that minimizes strain on your body, even after extended use. With its seven-degree offset handle and contoured body, the chainsaw has an ergonomic design that helps minimize fatigue. The chainsaw also keeps vibrations to a minimum, thanks to Husqvarna's LowVib technology, which makes the chainsaw easier on your joints.
The 235E is backed by a two-year manufacturer's warranty.

My biggest gripe about most consumer chainsaws is that they are often difficult to start, either initially or when they are warm, so that by the time it starts, your arms are already sore from pulling the cord over and over again and you're exhausted.
This saw comes with a laminated instruction card. Attach it to the case handle and always refer to it to refresh your memory. If you follow the startup instructions, it starts on the second or third pull, every time. And when warm, up to 30 mins of being off, you can usually just leave the choke off and it will start on the first or second pull. So sweet! Why they don't all do this, I don't know.
Reliable startup is the main reason I bought this saw, after being frustrated with my previous Stihl and Craftsman saws that would often refuse to start or constantly needed to be taken apart.
And in case you forgot to stabilize the fuel and left gas in it for several months, the 345 doesn't mind. It still starts up right away. Wow.
The saw also cuts awesome. It's built to reduce vibration, and it cuts hard woods like a breeze.
Maintenance is very easy. Remove the chain guard and clean the guard in the kitchen sink. Then use a little air spray can to clear off the gunk around the chain drive. Clean the saw after each use and I'm sure it will last for years.
I don't know what these other reviewers problem is with the chain brake. I haven't needed to remove the chain brake cover nor fuss with the spring. And I've never had the chain jump off, and that's even when it got pinched.Read more ›
The other problem with this saw is that, unlike my 3120 Husqvana, the brake handle is part of the saw body and not the chain cover and the brake assembly(with the springs and gears) is pat of the cover. Therefore, it is easy to accidentally open the cover with the brake on, thereby bringing the saw to an unworkable state. I have owned this saw for less than a week and will have taken it in for repairs TWICE.
Furthermore, I have discovered that the reason that I was being led to open the chain cover (my chain was falling off/getting REALLY loose) was due to the fact that the chain wasn't being oiled at ALL.
Overall, I was hoping for a high quality limbing saw but have found that I got a high priced low quality out-of-commission saw.
My primary use for it was to cut and section trees that were 12" or less in diameter. The grounds were let go for some years before I bought the place and I had a bunch of small maple and cherry trees in places where I didn't want them. Occasionally I took on a medium sized tree (14" - 18") which I know this saw is not really rated for... it showed because it was extremely difficult to get through those trees! That's why I gave it two stars and not one - I'm trying not to let it's poor performance on the medium sized trees affect my review.
Anyway, here are a list of the problems I encountered:
1.) After a few trees the saw wouldn't cut straight. The cut kept on curving to one side. I assumed that the bar or chain had worn down unevenly, so I bought a new bar, new chain and sharpening system. After putting on the new components the saw ran much better for about two or three small trees and then the curved cut problem started all over again. The chain is razor sharp, well oiled, at proper tension, and the bar is relatively new. I've spent hours reading forums and trying to trobleshoot this...but the problem persists. It's at the point now where the saw can't handle much more than 6" in diameter.
2.) Within the first month of solid use, the chain stopped getting a good bite on the wood. It would spin like crazy until the bar would start smoking (literally). Of course I thought that I did something wrong, but the pattern repeated even after I changed the bar and chain as I mentioned above.Read more ›
