  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

Chain Saws Direct Recommended

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 brake 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. With the vibration dampening system on this saw you can cut as much as you need to and still... more

Starts, Runs & Cuts - Everything One Would Want
Got the saw very quickly from Chain Saws Direct and immediately put it to use. Cleaned up some trails and cut down a couple of 12" Cherry trees. Gave my Poulan Pro to someone else.

Stay Away
I have owned this saw for 1.5 years and just through it in the junk. Very hard starting and hard to keep it running. My previous Husquevarnas were great saws but the 440 is making me switch to another brand.

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!

Very Nice Saw
I purchased this saw as a replacement for the Poulan 3416. I have a lot with a lot of trees and wanted to thin them out. The engine on the Poulan burned out after 2 days of use. To be completely fair, I don't think it was built for that kind of service.

This Husqvarna is a significant step up. I have spent one day with it so far- cutting 6-12 inch diameter trees for 3 hours and it works very well. Compared to the Poulan, I notice that it uses far less chain oil and the chain rarely... more

Happy Husqy Owner
The saw goes beyond my expectations.

It has been many years since I had bought my previous saw. The technology has moved on. The saw is a power machine, make no mistake about it. It cuts through 15 inch ash trunks like butter. Really!

And, it is so light. It is really hard to believe all that power in such a lightweight package. For starting - read the directions carefully, AND, it will start perfectly with a few pulls (warm or cold) - even first time out of the box. And, the no-tools... more

First Chain Saw
I bought this saw after reading the reviews. I don't have any knowledge of other saws to compare it to, but I really like it. I have been cutting and splitting firewood and some of the logs are 20 inches in diameter. Cuts right through them.

The only reason I didn't rate it 100% 5 stars is because when I first got it I could not get it started. Had to take it to a guy friend who is a logger. Once he got it started I haven' t had any trouble with it since.

I would definitely recommend... more

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.
Dale, 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.

Need Lighter Work Saw For Ranch.
I have always had Stihl chainsaws, with the last one being the farm boss with a 20 bar. As I am almost 70 and the size and weight of the saw was getting harder for me to start and use safely. I don't use a saw often, but I do have the occasional blow down 12-16 inches or sizeable broken limb 10-12" and a small 60 plus tree orchard that needs periodic saw work during spring pruning. After doing some research I thought the Husqvarna 440E might meet my needs. I haven't had a chance to... more

Well Worth The Price
Beautiful saw, a real work of art, powerful, light, easy on the hands, no vibrations, quiet and clean burning. It cuts wood faster than any other saw I ever used. Looks like a lot of thought and workmanship was put into this saw, just the way it feels, the controls, and the pull starter fit and finish. I am very glad I bought it and can't wait for the next storm, almost...

My Saw
I read several comments about hard to start, but if you read the directions it is easy. My only complaint is the chain adjust. The thumb wheel is so small and pointed it is hard to turn. Go back to the old way, it really is not hard to use the wrench plus with only one nut to hold the adjustment I think it does not hold as good. I wish I had bought the model 435.
Pros: Price, Durable, Reliable
Cons: Difficult To Use, My Saw
