I would recommend this chainsaw. I am a firm believer in buying the best you can afford. This is the one I bought. It is a wood eating machine.

Leaks Bar Oil
My 445 leaks bar oil when not in use, so after using it, I have to empty the reservoir or it will leak all over the inside of the case or anything under it if left sitting idle for a extended length of time.
Husqvarna company rep. said to call nearest service establishment when I inquired about it.
Husqvarna authorized service said nothing was wrong with it. That it was typical of the gravity fed bar oiler with this model.

You Get What You Pay For
Believe me buy this chain saw, we needed a saw to cut up a fallen tree on our property, two foot round, about 30 feet tall, first pull and we were off and running, 11/2 gallons of fuel. Shut down couple times for a cold drink and this thing started right up on the first pull again, cut each piece 14 inches long, and never had to sharpen it once. I am a homeowner and wanted something that would out last me. I would highly recomend this saw to anyone

Excellent saw for all around light to medium duty. With the 18" bar it is an excellent saw for keeping the wood pile full and the wood lot under control. It is easy to start, excellent on the fuel easy to maintain. Highly recommend this saw for your all around saw needs.

BEST SAW FOR THE MONEY!
I just had 3 40 ft tall maple trees knocked down at my home. The trunks of the tree were between 30 and 40 in in diameter. I've had my saw for 5 years and only used it for small trees and limbs 8 to 10 in in diameter. My saw cut up those huge trees just as good as my friends more expensive Farm Boss and put my brothers Craftsman to shame. I went through 3 chains but the saw never backed down, very impressed. I did however break my chain break, but the saw still works great! Best yard tool I own!

The Littlle Saw that could
I love this little saw it has loads of power,and is as light as a feather. I bought this saw for my son to start out on, he limbed with it and it preformed well and it was able to keep up limbing with my 372. My wife now uses it for carving, and it works great LImbing to carving now that's versital

This is a nice little saw. I bought it to clear/trim a 4-acre property and to cut back the overgrown edges of farm fields having vegetation varying from honeysuckle bushes up to 12+ inch diameter hardwoods. I have run a few gallons through it now and this saw has performed flawlessly, always starts well, and runs strong. I was having trouble keeping the chain sharp - get a Dremmel Tool chain sharpener and a bench vise.
