HUSQVARNA 440 e-series
Luckily Amazon had this in stock. Did some research about other saws, and the reviews were always better for Husqvarna. Needed to do a good deal of yard cleanup after the hurricane including a bunch of downed trees. The weight and power was perfect for what I wanted. Easily cut through 12-14 inch limbs and trunks. Vibration control is amazing. 4 straight hours of use, and no arm or hand fatigue. Simple chain maintenance and replacement. Easy starts following instructions. Light weight enough that I made a bunch of coasters for friends out of a very interesting colored limb.

I love chainsaws. This is one that seems to be strong and hopefully will last me a while. The chain dulls quickly. I've had to work on it a good bit, but still not worth not having it. There's not a chainsaw out there that I'd like to have instead of this one.

GOOD VALUE, EASY START, AND KEEPS RUNNING.
I had a Poulin for three years and after the third time to the repair shop I bought a good chain saw, a Husqvarna. First time it took a few pulls to get it started, but now it starts on first pull. Easy to handle and light. Great deal at Lowes for only $299.00, worth the price.

Hey, this is a Husqvarna site but cannot find the model saw I bought???? I bought a 440 not a 440e. It does not have the auto adjuster. It did not come with a 16 inch bar but a 18 inch.
Only problem I had was starting. Do not need to pump the bulb after there is fuel in the system. 1 pull on choke and the second pull off choke and off it goes. Also wished it had a .375 chain insted if a .312 one.

BEST SAW IN THE WORLD !!
I've cut wood for 20 yrs and have used just about every brand of saw out there . I bought a Husqvarna 440 this past fall and my eyes were opened. This is the cadillac of chain saws . easy to start with the step by step instructions , lightweight , the torque is unbelievable , very easy on fuel, great for trimming small branches but mean enough to tackle big hardwood trees, very user friendly . I will never buy another brand ! Thanks for a Great Product!! A+++
