  4 Questions
Q: Mike
I see in the specs section that the maximum of the bar is up to 18 inches. Does this mean that it can accept an 18 inch chain, or should one stick to the advertised 16 inches?

by Serge from Maryland on October 31, 2011

A: This saw can accept bar and chain combinations from 13" long up to 18" long- the bar and chain must match each other in both the length and width so it will run smoothly & safely.

This means you can change the length to suit the job at hand- a shorter bar & chain if you're doing a lot of trimming; the 16" pair for most tasks, or that larger bar for big projects.

Bear in mind that the balance and weight of the saw will change as you change the bar & chain. Plan on a few minutes of practice to get used to the feel of the saw before you start serious cutting.

Q: If I purchase this saw, is there a carry case made for it?
by DLC from North Carolina on September 24, 2011

A: Yes, we do. Here is the model number Model 1000001-07.

Q: Is there a 4 cycle chainsaw available?

by Joe from California on September 23, 2011

A: None that I am aware of.

Q: Why does the Husqvarna 440E only have a 1year warranty while the 435 has 2
by Mark Navone from Massachusetts on July 17, 2011

A: That has a 2-year warranty.

Chain Saws Direct Recommended

This saw is very similar to our Best pick, but with more good stuff.

The body of the saw is still set long-ways and well balanced; and the engine is a little larger and more powerful- but still weighs under 10 pounds.

The hand guard and chain catcher have been beefed up for more protection and user comfort.

This is still considered a Consumer grade saw, but it will take on most household chores with very little effort, and all but the largest trees and wood piles.

We Cut Most Of Unwanted Trees In A Day
We needed to clear land from unwanted trees that were in the way of a Deere tractor that we use to cut grass and keep property/meadows from growing more trees. We will have wood for our wood stove and far reaching views from back porch, thanks to Husky!

Not Happy With This Saw
I bought this saw brand new. After 3 or 4 tanks of gas I have had to take it to a repair shop. Still waiting to get it back. Apparently the average guy cannot adjust the jets on the carb as it takes a special tool which I was told it is against the law to buy. This is the worst saw I have ever owned.
Bob, the Chain Saw Expert
Product Expert
Ed,
Thank you for the review, sorry to hear about the jets on the saw. These saws like most power equipment, sometimes it needs to be adjusted depending on the altitude you live in. Please do not hesitate to email us or call us if you need any assistance with the service center.

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Ed,
The average guy is not capable of adjusting the carburetor on a chainsaw. A special tool is required that is only available to dealers. We legally can not sell this to customers as they may adjust the saw out of EPA compliance. Also, if the carburetor is not adjusted correctly, you may run the saw too lean and burn the motor up. While it is frustrating to take to a dealer to have adjusted in the long run, your saw will work correctly after being adjusted and you will be able to use for many years to come.

Needed A New Chainsaw
After a good bit of online research I bought this saw. So far it has been great. Started first time out of the box. Did an hour's worth of sawing without shutting it off. Performed nicely. Can't wait to do my next project. Might rate it again after a few more uses.

Good Chainsaw
Difficult to start unless you follow the directions for starting it. If you follow the directions exactly, it is easy to start.

Great Chainsaw
I have a heavily wooded two acre lot and needed a good chainsaw. I did some homework and found this saw had very good reviews. It hasn't failed yet, and I use it very regularly glad I bought it.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, High Quality, Durable

Not Enough Power And Very Hard To Start
I am a casual user of chain saws and cut about 3 to 4 cords of firewood a year for my family in Michigan. I started with a Worx electric which was fine but I decided for independence of the power cord and bought a 440. Next to impossible to start and after I bought it, the dealer confirmed that they are known for being hard to start. I took it in for a tune up and it started once when I brought it home. I was cutting 12 to 15 inch Wild Cherry logs. At times it stopped cutting and generally... more

Success! First Chainsaw I've Owned!
Based on reviews of the product, I studied the manual before use. This was also my first chainsaw to own and I wanted to make sure I gave myself every chance for success.

Followed the instructions and it fired right up and ran great. I zipped right through some 18-20" sections of 2 year old, fallen cedar trees. This was a great purchase!
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: None

"If you are a first time user/owner like me (60 years old) I would highly recommend this site and product for purchase. The Husqvarna 440E (16") 40cc Consumer Gas Chainsaw was my choice. I read lots of reviews and watched several videos. After all of my homework, this is the site and the product that I chose."

Customer service was great, the saw came in a few days, price was comparable to big box store price but was shipped free and no tax. What a deal!
