Great With A Stumble
Very very pleased with cutting. I had a stumble at first as I am not a pro. Many may laugh at this, but still me like me may benefit. The problem was with initial start. Follow this procedure. Push in cylinder pressure valve. Set to choke. Pump gas bulb 4 times. When it try's to start , reset choke by pulling out of choke position. Then start. If you have major difficulty starting. Hold trigger throttle in, crank, and crank. It will finally will start.
Pros: Light Weight, Fast, Price, Easy To Use
Cons: Bad Instructions

Great Chainsaw, 2nd Husqvarna I've Owned
I still have my first 136 Husqvarna and it still works well. This 445 started on the second pull right out of the box. Easy to work with, fast cutting.
Pros: High Quality, Fast, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: none

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

Great Chainsaw For The Price
I purchased this chainsaw a few weeks ago and I have been very satisfied with it. I have no complaints about it as it runs, starts and idles wonderfully. No issues with starting but I am very familiar with Husq as all my yard tools are Husq or built by them. Looking back I do wish i got a bigger one... kinda one of those things a big one can do everything that a smaller one can't. If you are waffling between this one or something bigger, my suggestion is to go larger. If you do decide on this... more
