HUSQVARNA 450 e-series
My first saw!
As a first time home and land owner, I knew a good chainsaw would be an invaluable tool from all the years I spent helping my Dad maintain my parents' property. I did not have a specific brand in mind initially, but after talking to a few people, I quickly decided a Husqvarna was the way to go. I ended up getting the 450 e-series and so far I'm glad I did. This saw has loads of power and the standard 18" bar is perfect for land upkeep. I've blazed through downfalls and standing dead trees so far, greatly improving the appearance of my property. After I'm done, the tooless chain adjustment feature makes for quick disassembly and cleaning. The saw is easy on the hands and the anti-vibration system seems to work well. With care, I know that this saw will give me years of dependable use.

A good saw for any landowner task.
I have used this saw to cut small fell limbs to 24" up rooted trees. This saw has never let me down. I used it during a weather emergency and had pure confidence in the abilty for the saw complete the task.

Excellent Overall Saw
I have owned this saw for a year and have run seven tanks of gas through it. This saw has plenty of power, is not too heavy and is easy to use. I would highly recommend this saw. I purchased this saw after I purchased two low quality chainsaws from big box retailers. There is a world of difference between a Husqvarna saw and others. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra bucks and get a Husqvarna saw, you'll thank yourself later.

I was given a 450e this past Christmas to replace a Stihl MS250, and simply couldn't be happier with the saw. The 450e makes incredible torque for a 50cc class chainsaw, and the features (decompression valve & recessed primer bulb) make starting and operating the saw a snap even during the coldest winter months in Wisconsin.
Husqvarna also made servicing the saw easy with simple access to the air filter, and tool-less chain and bar tightening. Overall, a fantastic saw!

450e chainsaw 50cc engine
I bought the 450 with very high hopes that this saw will stand up to my expectations. After I have brought the saw home and ran a pretty east gallon of 50:1 gas mixture of premium fuel and husqvarna xp 2 stroke oil.
After that gallon was burned threw I knew that it was time do some really cutting with my new saw. I went out into the woods to fell a few trees picked out a black ash tree about 25 in on the stump. I fired up my saw started on first cut of the open face saw did not hesitate whatsoever. The felling marks come in handy very usefull On the second cut i was able to cut right up to my first cut with out the chain stalling or the engine bogging down i removed my wedge wood and started on the back cut the saw pulled chips right threw the knots and put the tree on the ground and bucking up the tree with it being about 25 inches on the stump and 16 inches at the crown I bucked this tree up with out any problem barley used and fuel hardly perfect amount of oil going out on the chain and not ontothe ground great saw overall I will recommend this saw to any one

Had chainsaw for about a year, so far no major problems. Cuts well, and is lighter than other comparable chainsaws. No tool chain adjustment can be stubborn at times. Some oil leakage after stopping chainsaw.

The Husky 450 - Light and Fast!
I purchased my new 'Husky' 450 last February. I had been using an old Rancher 50 for the past 20 years that's still going strong, but I wanted to provide a smaller carbon footprint and needed a new saw for the new Century I am in. I was amazed at the ease in starting her, and how light she was to wield while climbing around in a 19" white oak tree. I needed to climb so that I wouldn't damage the garage and I could operate this saw with one hand when I really needed to. I am not a big, burly guy, only 5-10 and 265 lbs. It has been a pleasure using this little denizen which saves me gas, is always ready to rock and roll and saves my back by having an 18" bar. I'd recommend this saw to any occasional lumberjack like myself, and I'm not expecting to need anything else for many years to come.
