  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.
by Bob, Product Expert
Q: Is there a 4 cycle chainsaw available?

by Joe from California on September 23, 2011

A: None that I am aware of.
by Bob, Product Expert
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!

Junk !
Not worth the $$$. Had to have mine serviced regularly d/t continued problems. The first few months it ran great then started running rough. Serviced and within 6 days of use had it back in to the shop. They did a total rebuild which they were trying to blame on misuse or wrong fuel mix (not even) always used exact mix called for. Again it ran good for a while then started going thru fuel like crazy, the mechanics checked it and said its fine. Soon started loosing power, back to the mechanic,... more

Exceeding Expectations
Reviewed all the major brands and specs before coming up with what I thought was the saw that would serve me the best. That saw was the Husqvarna 440E, which had the horsepower, size, and light weight I wanted. Right from the first start and cut the Husqvarna has met my expectations.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Price, Reliable

Love This Saw!
My previous chainsaw was a Husqvarna 235. When it broke I replaced it with this saw which was about $50+ more because
of the great reviews. It was delivered very quickly and shipping was free. This saw is awesome . I have used it many times and I love it. It cuts wood like it's cutting butter. I cut up many large trees and have absolutely no complaints about this saw.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Fast
Cons: None

Great Chainsaw!
We have a pair of Huskys that are 13 years old. LOTS of use and they have held up well. A new pair will make cutting firewood much easier. And the price can't be beat at Chain Saws Direct!
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Easy To Use, Quiet

Nice Chain Saw
Needed a chain saw to remove small to medium size trees, cuts really good, starts every time, idles good, very easy to adjust chain tension. Only fault is it just started leaking oil for no apparent reason, before that we kept in storage inside house with no leaks at all..
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Reliable, Overall Good Chain Saw For Week End Work
Cons: Started Leaking Oil Have Not Found Why Yet

Firewood Is No Match For This Saw
Fill the tanks, follow directions, and pretty soon you will have a pile of wood cut before the tank is empty. Be sure to get familiar with the instructions and use proper fuel and chain oil to enjoy top performance from this saw. It doesn't know that it is considered a small saw as it cuts through seasoned Oak about as fast as any. Shipping was fast and delivered in excellent shape.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Price, Reliable, Durable
Cons: None

Love It
Saw starts cold with 2 to 3 pulls, starts hot with 1 to 2 pulls. Plenty of power, last saw I bought was a 20'' Poulan by Sears back in 87 still have it . I burn about 3 cords a year and cut all my own wood. Haven't used the Poulan since I got this saw. Hope I get the same service from this one. Great saw so far.
