Designed to fit the needs of homeowners and do-it-yourselfers, the 16-inch Husqvarna 240E gas-powered chain saw is ideal for jobs like pruning, lighter cutting tasks, and hobby work. It's easy to start and operate, and it offers an ergonomic design plus built-in Husqvarna features like air injection technology and a powerful X-Torq engine with low emissions.

The 240E delivers 2.0 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 240E, you won't have to waste precious minutes trying to start the engine. Husqvarna's Smart Start offers an engine and starter that starts quickly with minimum effort--with resistance in the starter cord reduced by up to 40 percent. The chainsaw also 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, quick and easy tool-less chain tensioning and assembling of the bar, 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.
