Husqvarna 450 E-series 18″ Chain Saw
A few weeks back we reviewed the Husqvarna 560BTS Back Pack blower and fell in love with it. A few years back I purchased an Echo 306 from Home Depot. It seemed like a good saw until I got it home. I had to return the first one because it wouldn’t start and the second one never ran right! Finally, I couldn’t take it anymore! I needed to get a quality, reliable saw. I had my eyes set on the Husqvarna 450 18″ chain saw. It has a $389.95 MSRP and a reliable easy to start 50.2 cc... more

Awesome Chainsaw
I bought a Husqvarna 450 Prosumer Chainsaw from Power Equipment Direct about three months ago and have cut over 200 trees, and I must say this chainsaw is the best I ever owned. I waited to review this chainsaw so I could put some hours on it. I read some reviews where they stated that it was hard to start, Well I never had that problem. Matter of fact that is one of the things that I love about this saw, it is so easy to start. On one of the days I used the saw for over 10 hours straight, with... more

1 Time Use And Now Wont Start
I bought this 450 back in May and just used it for the first time this week (November 1st). Followed directions for starting procedures and started and ran great. After 30 minutes of cutting I turned it off and took a break. After about 10-15 minutes I topped of the fuel and bar oil and try to restart. It would not start.

I checked spark and fuel, and it had both. Tried putting fuel in the cylinder to get it to pop and no luck. Pulled and pulled and it wont start. I let it set for a... more
Pros: Light Weight
Cons: Unreliable, Durability, wont start when warm

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
P.,
It sounds as if the saw was likely flooded (over-abundance of fuel present). When the saw is still warm the choke will likely not need to be used to restart.

In cases where the unit becomes flooded please turn the choke off completely, depress the compression release, and hold the throttle at full while pulling the starter rope. This will allow maximum air-flow through engine and will help de-flood the cylinder. Exercise care during this procedure.

"great Saw" And I Hate Everything I Buy!
I've never been satisfied with any kind of equipment I've bought in the past five years, everything is cheap Chinese junk! I'm an electrician by trade, and I use a lot of tools, the last chainsaw I purchased, was a poulan piece of junk! This 450 Husky 18" 50cc makes me smile!

Couldn't Have Picked A Better Saw For My Needs
Broke this saw in on a few 20" p.n.w. myrtles. Worked all day with no problems. The saw is easy to start and has great power to weight ratio. My only issue was with the narrow kerf chain. While great for limbing and small diameter trees (read yard maintenance) it suffers while bucking larger logs as it seemed to get pinched in the cut too early. I ordered an Oregon 20lpx full kerf full comp full chisel. This saw has enough power to run this chain no problem and cuts very fast. Be careful,... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Price, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Saw deserves a more aggressive chain

First Husqvarna
After reading what seemed like 1,000 reviews on all kinds of saws, I decided on the Husqvarna 450 Rancher. I took it out of the box and fired it up. It fired up after the first 5 tugs on the rope. So far, so good. The first day in the woods, I ran five tanks of fuel through it.

I've used chain saws of all kinds for about 45 years. Over all, the saw has done everything I've asked it to. I cut two large oaks, a hickory, and several maples of different sizes. A couple of times after refueling... more

Joseph,
You may want to check your oiling system to make sure not only that the oil hole in the bar is open, but that the supply slot going to the hole isn't obstructed/blocked by debris of some sort. If they're open and clear, then you can try to adjust the screw one way or another to see if the oil distribution improves.

If you continue having issues, you can always contact the manufacturer to find out if there's an authorized service center in your area that can take a look at it under warranty. Best wishes.

A Good Product
The manual I received had information about greasing the sprocket at the end of the bar but there is no opening in which to insert grease as there was in older models. The manual is dated 2010. My chainsaw is a 2017 model. Finding a 2017 manual on the internet was not easy. The chainsaw works well but I would much rather have a choke switch that is separate from the start/stop switch. It does not start as readily as I would prefer but it is lightweight and relatively quiet.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: Bad Instructions

Good Saw For Me
I am a 66 year old man who likes to cut trees. I find my model 450 has plenty of power at 50.2 cc. It is light enough that it doesn't tire me out. It is a good value, easy to operate, and engineered well. Also the 16 chains from my old Homelite fit my new Husqvarna. So far so good!
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Price

Great Product
Fast shipping and packaged well. Love the chainsaw and it has plenty of power and starts easily.

I do not care for the design of the case and wish it were a single blow molded case (like Stihl) instead of a boxy "snap it together" case.

I would highly recommend this item.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Price, High Quality
Cons: Cheap case.
