Husqvarna 135 is no longer available for purchase. It was replaced by Husqvarna 135 Mark II.
The 135 is a 16” (40 cm) gas-powered chainsaw for casual use. In that range, it’s by far the most feature-packed. With 9.7 lbs (4.39 kg) it’s the lightest Husqvarna gas chainsaw. It’s ideal for homeowners and hobbyists, who need an efficient cutting tool. It’s easy to use, even if you’ve never used a chainsaw before. There’s an instruction label on the saw itself, which provides guidance for new users.
The fuel tank should last about 20 minutes of continuous use.
Pros & Cons
- A lot of features
- Sometimes stalls when idle
- Hard to start
Even though Husqvarna 135 has a lot of features, it also has its downsides. People are reporting trouble with starting it up and stalling when the chainsaw is idle. The successor 135 Mark II seems to have fixed these issues.
