A favourite among homeowners preferring to prepare their own firewood and carry out a little property maintenance; the Husqvarna 236 has proven itself many times over.
Everyone needs a hobby, and if your hobby happens to involve cutting things up with power tools then why not? Of course, even as a ‘hobbyist’ chainsaw Husqvarna’s 236 is a spectacularly useful machine (and certainly more practical to have around than a stamp collection). Designed to be easy to start and operate, the 236 is a rear handle chainsaw designed for jobs like pruning, cutting firewood and DIY work, all with the added advantages offered by Husqvarna’s characteristic commitment to convenience and quality.
Supplied as standard with a 35cm (14”) bar and 3/8″ pitch chain, one of the most remarkable things about the 236 is that it features the same X-Torq® technology as many of Husqvarna’s professional grade saws. This means that the 236’s 38.2cc X-Torq® two-stroke petrol engine is able to reduce harmful exhaust emissions by up to 75% and increase fuel efficiency by up to 20%, providing exceptional user convenience in the process. A 0.3 litre fuel tank, moreover, provides enough run time to tackle most light cutting tasks, while the inclusion of an easy-access primer bulb and combined choke/stop control permit easier starting and reduce the risk of the engine flooding.
Let us not forget, however, that this machine has been designed for convenience as well as cutting performance. The 236’s lightweight design (only 4.7kg without cutting gear), for example, makes it pleasingly portable, while its ergonomic front and rear handles and intuitive controls deliver remarkable ease of use and ensure complete control at all times. Husqvarna’s superbly effective LowVib® anti-vibration technology, moreover, isolates the user’s hands from engine vibrations to prevent strain over extended periods of operation, thereby ensuring your comfort. Also compatible with 33cm-40cm (13”-16”) guide bars, Husqvarna’s 236 is thus a chainsaw which undoubtedly offers plenty of bang for your buck.
