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.

This saw is light, easy to maintain, and works like a champ all around. It does get very hot after a while. I was cutting 6 inch logs today and once I was done cutting through it the chain was smoking like crazy and the engine was pretty hot also. Not a con though. It has plenty of power and I recommend it to any homeowner.

Purchased the 445 with an 18” bar to replace an old saw I have. The new 445 performed better than I anticipated. Saw has plenty of power and easy to maintain. I would recommend the saw, great value at a fair price.

Haven't owned the 445 long and only used it once so far. I really like the way you hold it when starting with your right foot through the rear handle and left hand on the grip. Really keeps it secure while starting. I also like that the vibration level you feel in your hands while cutting is low. It easily cut through 4 - 5 inch branches. I only need it for infrequent and light duty. It seems well made and more than able to handle the jobs I'll use it for.

Great saw ...but made me want the 455 rancher
Overall it's a great saw. I won't say excellent and good is an understatement. The saw handles great, easy to start, hold for long time, and cuts really well.... it does get hot and has to be rested or it sounds like its struggling. I do wish I had gotten the 455 rancher around 100 bucks more would have been worth it, because the hard plastic cover cracked on the first tree branch that wacked it, not bad... but enough to make me sick because it was brand new...Overall if you just have small trees to cut down its perfect.
