Got this saw as a gift from my family after I used a friend's and raved about how excellent and east to use it was. Now I am enjoying having my own. Some day one of my friends can use mine and end up getting one for themselves too.

I only cut wood about 15 hours a year and that is enough for us. It is seasoned and nothing big I do not cut live tree's down got enough that are dead and laying. The saw is great I have been killing myself it feels like with my old saws I had. This is the first new saw I have ever had always bought used and other brands well I will never by used again and will always buy Husqvarna. I spent a little more on the brand but it is easy to start and runs great. If I cut bigger and live trees I would buy at least the next size up but this one I have work perfect for me.

The Chainsaw only lasted one use.
This was very shocking. The chainsaw ran beautiful during the tree fall. On the very last cut of the tree the chainsaw lost all power. The chainsaw started fine but when attempting to use it had no power to cut the tree and just dogged out. I had to use a old saw to cut the tree into fire wood. Very disappointing.

The instructions are very poor, for instance the instructions say to keep air filter clean but there are no instructions on where it is or how to get to it.

Owning several Husqvarna products, when I determined I needed a smaller chainsaw than my 455, the 240 was an easy choice. Light, powerful and easy to operate, the saw has done everything I have asked it to do and more. For smaller jobs, the 240 is a great product.

I purchased this saw after my other one died of old age. The chain saw starts easy and is perfect for the clean up work after our last good blow we had in the northeast The husky has the correct weight and ergonomic design that it is a brease to use cutting and limbing up downed trees. I have recommended it to all I know.

This is my first gas powered chainsaw. Several friends and co-workers recommended this brand and saw and I am very pleased. It started right up and cut an entire truck load of fire wood like butter. Very pleased with purchase.

We've had several Husky's over the years.
This was bought to replace one that had recently been stolen. The quality of the saw is nothing like the older ones that we had.
There is an awful lot of plastic. It's difficult to adjust the chain and the little plastic gear that is located behind the sprocket that operates the oiler and pumps oil onto the bar, broke, the first time I used it. The saw does not have much power and stayed in the bogged down mode. We were not cutting big trees or anything, maybe 4" to 8" logs.
The plastic part has been back orderd for a couple of weeks or at least that is what DeViney Equipment, the dealer that we bought the saw from says. I cut with the saw for a half hour or maybe 45 minutes and it's been in the shop for over 3 weeks. I will NOT buy another one and you should NOT either. Also, if you buy a Husqvarna, buy it from LOWE's so that you can get a refund if there is a problem with the saw.
