Had another brand of chainsaw,you would run it for a while,shut it off and it would not restart until it had completely cooled down. Found out right away that this husqvarna saw will start hot or cold every time. It feels good in your hands and cuts like a dream!!!! I highly recommend this saw. May cost a little more than the cheapest brand,but it's worth every penny and it cuts circles around the others!!!!!!

Serious homeowner user
Excellent product. Gret power for the size and saw is easy to use for limb trimming. Only con is you need to properly follow the start up procedure. If you do not get it right the first time or on another try you may have to let the saw sit or clear the excess fuel build up.

The name says it all
Nearly all my friends who own and use chainsaws told me to get a Husky. I was finally treated to one as a gift from my wife and have to say it is everything I would want. It starts easy, stays on idle without stalling, is easy to handle and cuts down trees like a beaver!

Easy to start
This saw starts easy once you get the hang of it. Been cutting wood to heat our home for the last 27 years. Love the low vibration and weight as I am getting older.

compression release is great feature
I own (3) Husqvarna chainsaws (2) husky weed wackers and (1) husky blower.All are great except my 455 which is hard to pull now that I'm older. That is why I bought the 445 for ease of starting with the compression release button.

Glad I spent the extra dollar
Good all around chainsaw. Easy to start, light in the hands and gets the job done. Had a Poulon wild thing that was a cheap thing. May seem expensive but you usually get what you pay for! Happy consumer of this product!! Anyone know of some trees needing attention?

So far so good
I've been using this saw for a few weeks and have no complaints so far. It handles everything I've thrown at it with ease and has consistently started with zero problems.
