Ease of use

Husqvarna’s Smart Start system makes this chainsaw fairly easy to start. A combined start and stop switch as well as an efficient fuel pump, make the chainsaw easy to start.

It has a built-in sensor that automatically shuts off the chain when a sudden shift in upward motion occurs while using the chainsaw.
