If you have a large property to maintain, the chainsaw is an important tool. It can help trim small to medium-size trees and help keep branches away from wires and other potential hazards. However, several dozen brands are available, and choosing the best one for your needs can be a challenge. One of the most popular models right now is the Husqvarna 440, and we’re going to take a closer look at it to help you learn more about how it operates to see if it’s worth the money.

Husqvarna is a well-known chainsaw company that has a large line of gas and battery-powered chainsaws for sale. The bar length ranges from 12 to 32 inches, making them suitable for almost any job a non-professional might have.

18-Inch Bar

The 18-inch bar on the Husqvarna 440 is perfectly suited for trimming, shrubbery, brush, small trees, and more without bogging down or forcing you to stretch.

Easy-To-Pull Start String

The handle on the pull string is quite wide, and it allows you to get a good grip for more leverage when you’re trying to get it started.

Tight Chain

One of the things we liked most about the Husqvarna 440 was that it was easy to change the chain. The chain also remained tight while we worked. It rarely needed adjusting, unlike most other chainsaws we’ve used in the past.

Hard To Start

If we had to choose one thing to complain about, the engine is incredibly hard to start, and we were glad they made the handle extra wild, so it was easier to pull the string. The push button to put gas into the carburetor didn’t seem to work, and we usually didn’t get started till we were nearly ready to give up.

Conclusion

The Husqvarna 440 can be a great little chainsaw if you have the knack for getting it started. It often took us several dozen pools of the comfortable handle to get it running to review it. Once it warmed up, it was significantly easier to start, but the fuel line seemed to allow air in, and we noticed it stalled frequently. Outside of these problems, the large bar made it easy to cut through shrubbery and small trees around our property, and it was a pleasure to use. The blade was sharp, worked well, and didn’t dull too quickly like many chains you get for free.
