    My dealer knew I'd been searching for a top handle saw. Today he called to tell me he had only one Husqvarna T435 left and if I wanted a good deal to head on over ASAP.

    I'm a Stihl guy, but the deal he gave me I couldn't pass up.

    How many shades of orange (kubota, Allis Chalmers, Stihl, Echo and now Husky) can I own before it starts getting tacky?


    ( Sorry the pics suck, and one is upside down. )

    cartod,

    I wouldn't consider it cheating. The Stihl's both know, even the Echo backpack blower seemed fine with it.

    kenmac,


    Thank you sir!

    I have no doubts about this little saw. But I think I'll keep both the 18" Stihl saws, you know, just in case I need to cut something larger than a limb.

    Your husky is really a red redmax 3500 in orange drag. Not a real husky, just name and color.

    I like my Husky top handles. I don't own any Stihl top handles. And have owned several of the Echo top handle saws. Thanks XYZ for the update

    I'm sitting here trying to decide if he meant that was a bad thing or not.

    He might be afraid of his beer drinking buddies giving him a bad time for stepping out of the mold and getting another brand..

    Why a top handle, do you do a lot of climbing or bucket limbing?

    Top handles are great saws for the weight and power for branches and small trunk stuff up to about 14-15" size. Less wear and tear on us old geezers.
