Husqvarna K 535i Battery Power Cutter Review
The new battery powered cutter from Husqvarna is the most powerful one in its class. It cuts through wood, plastic, metal and even sheetrock with ease. It’s capable of cutting up to 6″ x 12″. You can use it to trim small branches or large sections of drywall.
It can also be used to remove moldy food stains and other stubborn problems. The power of the Husqvarna K 535i battery powered cutter is impressive, but it’s not without some drawbacks.
First of all, it takes time to charge the battery pack before using it. If you’re working on a tight deadline, then charging will take longer than usual. Also, if you have a lot of work to do, then you might run out of juice before the battery fully charges.
Another drawback is that the battery does not last forever. After only two years of regular use, it will need to be replaced due to its low life expectancy. If you don’t want to replace your battery every couple years, then consider buying a spare unit instead.
The K 535i is a great tool for the professional. If you’re just doing small jobs here and there, then you’re probably better off sticking with a gas-powered model. The battery system is complicated and it doesn’t work as well as it could. For a lot of people, the hassle isn’t really worth it.
However, if you need a powerful cutter for bigger jobs, then you will be blown away by how much this machine can cut through. Just be careful not to trip over the wire or let it get snagged on anything. Otherwise, you might find yourself without a working device.
You can find this product at most major tool stores and online retailers. It’s also available in different colors, but the price remains the same wherever you buy it.

The Husqvarna K 535i is a powerful battery-operated chainsaw that uses a highly efficient lithium-ion battery to produce maximum power for up to 70% of the charge, which means the battery lasts longer between charges.
The battery provides more power than a standard nickel-cadmium battery for up to 40% longer runtime. The K 535i has a large cutting bar and automatic oiling for easy operation. It is also completely maintenance free.
Operation of the saw is as simple as it gets. There are no gas and oil mixing, no spark plugs to replace and no exhaust emissions. The saw is also very light, weighing only 7.4 lbs.
(including the battery).
The K 535i is the most powerful tool in its class and is ideal for professionals who need a powerful saw that can get the job done with minimum hassle. It is also easy-to-use by less experienced saw operators due to its simple start up process, easy-to-read gauge, automatic chain lubrication and soft rubber handle grip.
The K 535i comes complete with a carrying case, battery, charger, shoulder strap, safety glasses and tool kit. It has a 2-year warranty.

If it’s a product that doesn’t impress us, hasn’t had a chance to prove itself or just isn’t very good, we don’t review it. If you received the product for free or at a discount in exchange for a review, it didn’t cost you anything extra and we will make that clear if we publish your review. We also don’t allow publishers to influence our reviews by demanding changes; they handle all of that.
It also makes us mad when a brand has a “preferred” reviewer (like Amazon) and won’t allow us to publish a review from someone who didn’t get it free or at a discount!
There is no shortage of cordless chainsaws on the market, but there are very few that are built specifically for heavy-duty professional use like the Husqvarna K 535i. Other cordless saws just aren’t built for the constant wear and tear a professional tool must endure on a daily basis. They are often limited by their power output, which is not the case with this model. This chainsaw is also unique in its size and weight, as it is much smaller and lighter than other cordless saws on the market.
The powerful battery takes up most of the weight, making this tool very easy to handle.
The powerful battery also gives the saw an advantage over other professional cordless chainsaws, many of which only have half the amount of power. At the same time, it is easy to handle and can be used for hours on end without causing stress on your arms and body. This saw is particularly useful in situations where there is no electrical source, as it is completely self-sufficient. For these reasons, it is a great choice for professional landscapers who work in different areas on a regular basis and need to carry their tools from place to place.
This saw is very easy to start. You don’t have to deal with a pull cord like you do with most other chainsaws, which makes it much easier to get the tool up and running. The starting mechanism is activated by a button located on the front of the saw. You just need to push once to start.
Once the tool is activated, you can get to work with little delay. It is important to note that the chainsaw will not work until the battery has full charge.
The Oregon bar and chain are high-quality components that are built to last. This model comes with a .050 gauge chain which is one of the thicker options on the market. It is built to easily cut through wood without getting stuck or wearing down too quickly.
The tool also comes with a protective chain brake, which automatically kicks in when the bar is bent, and an override tooth protector that stops you from cutting into the wood if you force it. This helps keep the bar and chain sharp for longer so you don’t have to replace it as often.
The Oregon comes in an easy to carry case that has a spot for everything. It is compact enough that you can fit everything into a small section of your vehicle with room to spare. You can also transport it with the attached handle that latches onto the top of the case. There are also two built-in wheels on the bottom that make pulling it around very easy.
The dimensions of the case are 23″ long x 12″ wide x 7.
