Husky 135 Mark II offers increased horsepower by 0.09 than its previous model – the size of fuel tank is also bigger in the size. Users of the previous model of husky 135 used to appear with a complaint about its starting mechanism, however, the problem has been solved in 135 Mark II.

Salient Features of Husqvarna 135 Mark II

Most of the chainsaws manufactured by Husqvarna such as Husqvarna 130 exhibit excellent endurance and remain very popular among users, and there is no exception with 135 Mark II. It is an up-to-the-mark power-cutting tool that is capable of dealing with regular wood-cutting jobs. Followings are important features of 135 Mark II;

1. Performance 

When it comes to the performance of Husky 135 Mark II, it ranks out most of the conventionally available chainsaws. Centrifugal air cleaning system checks the way of large dust particles, and stops them from going into the combustion chamber – this factor saves the engine from wear and tear.

Meanwhile, the smart start mechanism provides users with the ultimate convenience of starting the engine of a chainsaw in a few attempts.

Similar to other Husky chainsaw models, the 135 Mark II has an engine with patented X-Torque technology. This technology reduces the consumption of fuel by 20%. It does not leave any unburnt fuel in the combustion chamber which ultimately reduces the emissions.

2. Advanced Safety Mechanism 

Chainsaws are extremely powerful and possess the ability to penetrate any rough or hard surface – this is the reason that necessitates the need for proper safety gear for the user. Meanwhile, Husqvarna also takes care of the safety of its users which led them to introduce the feature of inertia activated brake in the chainsaw; this brake engages itself automatically if the kickback occurs, and the user remains unharmed.

Furthermore, Husky 135 Mark II is equipped with a LowVib mechanism that absorbs maximum vibrations, and the user can keep using a chainsaw for long period without any problem. Due to absorbed vibrations, the user does not feel fatigued and completes the task.

3. Design 

The design of the 135 Mark II is almost similar to other chainsaws such as Husqvarna 440 and 450 Rancher – the design of the chainsaw offers ultimate convenience for the handler. There is a way to adjust the tension in the chain of the chainsaw from one side of the machine.

This side-mounted chain tensioner allows users to adjust the tension in the chain without spending too much time. Turning the tensioning pin in a clockwise direction increases the tension while turning it in an anti-clockwise direction reduces the tension.

For further convenience of users, there is a combined choke/stop control mechanism that helps users to start the engine faster. This adjustment saves the engine from flooding, and the chainsaw starts sooner. An air purge is also instrumental in eliminating the air from the combustion chamber.

4. Ergonomics 

Inarguably, the ergonomics of this power tool are laudable. This lightweight chainsaw is easy to hold and handle, while its LowVib mechanism further eases the working process. The compact design of this chainsaw makes it a perfect choice for users who climb up trees to cut branches.

Hold it firmly from the rear and front handle and start firewood cutting or tree pruning. In short, users remain in comfort while using this machine.

Instead of its commendable ergonomics, it has excellent cutting power which is perfect for small to medium-sized tasks.

5. Automatic Oil Delivery 

Lubrication of the bar and chain of the chainsaw is one of the most important things to keep your chainsaw serving in the longer run. Usually, there needs to do manual lubrication while using conventional chainsaws, however Husky 135 Mark II has an automatic oil delivery system that steadily delivers oil to the chain and the bar.

This is how users do not need to lubricate the bar and chain on their own. Automatic lubrication sets you free from the anguish of manual lubrication which might not be enough.
