I've had chainsaws for about 40 years, but this is my first Husqvarna. And last... Couldn't get it started... Had other friends try and they couldn't start it...After 2 days of trying I took it back to Lowes and they were great and refunded me.

shakey start with a new saw
I purchased my new Husqvarna 440 yesterday after seeing high recommendations. I brought it home read the quick start guard. filled the tank with gas mix filled the bar oil, primed it 6 times and cranked my but off for the next 35 minutes to get the darn thing to finally start. Out of all the new equipment I have every purchased this saw was almost the death of me getting started. But after finally getting it started, it performed just as I expected. Flawlessly. great great saw, I hope it outlasts its predicessor, my Poulan Pro was only 6 years old and started dying every time i started making a horizontal cut.

Good power, easy to handle, good safety features
Everything with the saw has been great. Cuts well. Chain break provides good level of protection. Only problem was initial starting was difficult. Wound up flooding engine. Easy access to spark plug made removal easy. Reassembled and got to start on 5th pull. Ran great all weekend starting on 1st or 2nd pull. Plenty of power. Good value for a $300 saw.

Best Chain Saw
My friends bought a different brand. They keep using my Husqvarna. It starts easier and runs better thenany brand that I've owned.

Used the Chainsaw (and bought the case with it) for cleanup on my property and my families property after hurricane Sandy. The chainsaw gave me no issues and worked like a champ!
