Finally A Reliable Chainsaw
After buying many different brands of low end chainsaws and always be disappointed in how they performed and mainly how difficult they were to start I bit the bullet and finally got what I always wanted.

I'm so happy with my new Husqvarna it starts very predictably every time no hassle. You know what that means not to get exhausted trying to start a stubborn chainsaw? I love it.

Husqvarna 445
Bought this saw 1 year ago, and it works okay. The spark plug wire wasn't hooked up to the spark plug on delivery, so it took me a few minutes to figure out why it wouldn't start.

When it's warm, it is very hard to start. Other than that, I like it. I don't think I would buy it again only because it's hard to start.
Pros: Light Weight, Price, Durable, Quiet
Cons: Unreliable, Very Hard To Start

Cuts Logs Like Butter
I have a 16" Stihl and this saw is sooooo much easier to cut with. Much faster. I like the Husqvarna much better than the Stihl however when the chain loosens on the Husqvarna, the tightening process takes longer and is more difficult. Definitely a hassle with the Husqvarna.

I also bought a carrying case for the Husq and the Stihl carrying case is superioior in ease, size, and handling.

"The research I did with your website was fantastic. Everything I wanted & needed, and a few things I liked that I didn't even realize I wanted. Spec sheet for example. Negative: Site would not accept my credit card based on search engine I was using? I had to call in the order."

Nice Deal
Good saw for homeowners. Easy start and great for limbs pruning and small trees. Was quoted 1600 for clearing up some small trees and limbs. Saw paid for itself 3 times over in one day. Not for cutting cords of wood, but fits the bill for around the yard.
Pros: Fast, Price, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations

Husqvarna 445, Great Saw
I live in small town Montana and had a old Poulan 55 Super from the 60's hand me down and worked great till a friend ran straight gas through it. so I needed a saw and I was looking to upgrade to a more prosumer saw. Looking around I saw this 445 at just the right price and decided to take a chance. This saw is easy to start, its lite with great features and can handle the small to medium cuts with ease. Me and a friend decided to put the saw to the test and took a 22" diameter tree. ... more

Huaqvarna 455 Is A Great Chainsaw For Guys Over 70 Years Old
I used my friends 450 to cleanup my property after a storm. I bought the 445 because its a bit lighter due to the smaller displacement engine. However it has all the same good features and reliability. It eats up the wood just as well and started on the third pull.
It's definitely a quality tool..
Pros: Price, Light Weight, Reliable, High Quality

Excellent Saw
Well worth the money. It costs a little bit at first, but it saves a lot of time and that's worth it all in its self. It also light which helps with my back and runs smooth and cuts through logs amazingly. Sawing up fire wood is no longer a chore with this saw it actually excites me to be able to fire this saw up and go to work. Starting has been easy hot or cold.
Pros: Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, High Quality

Nice Little Saw!
I haven't had it long, so can't comment on durability.

It showed up quickly and seems to be a high quality piece. It has a nice overall appearance and the fit and finish of all parts seems very nice.

It starts easily and willingly rips through the small to medium size wood I have used it on. It runs strong and has plenty of power. I couldn't be happier with it.

Free shipping and no sales tax are a great added bonus. I do wish I had known about the extended warranty offered by... more
