HUSQVARNA 450 e-series
Worth the money
Have used Poulans for years. Simply because of the cost. Well, for small stuff that I was usually cutting down (trees, mostly pine less than 12" in diameter) that was OK. Well, I now manage 14 acres and bigger trees (16-20" in diameter) and I needed a bigger saw. Always wanted a Husqvarna, and I went ahead and vouched for the 450-e. Great power, Great Ergonomics, for a great price. I will never return to a Poulan..ever. This saw is a great saw for any homeowner..... Period.

LOSS OF POWER
I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE UNIT UNTIL LAST WEEK. AT THAT TIME , IT STARTED LOSING POWER AND NOW , IT WILL HARDLY GO THROUGH PINE!!
I PURCHASED IT ON 3/9/2009 AT TSC FOR $369.00 AND WILL NOT BE GETTING ANOTHER ONE OR RECOMMENDING THEM TO ANYONE.
A UNIT HAT COST THAT MUCH SHOULD LAST LONGER THAN THREE YEARS!

Poor starting 450
This is my 2nd Husq. The first one was always a tough cold start but this one is absolutely nuts. When being left idle for a while I remove all fuel from all of my small engines including running it out so there's only fresh fuel when I start. But getting my 450 started is a nightmare. I have not even had to sharpen the original chain yet but I have already decided to get rid of this clunker. The 2nd time I used it I had to take it to my dealer to get it statred. He replaced defective parts (his term) and CHARGED ME for the labor saying that's his "policy'" So much for the lousy warranty.

I own 3 Husq's, I feel there is not enough bar oil when cutting dry wood. 2 Husq's are this model and the other is a Rancher 55. An oil adjustment valve would be nice in this instance.

Powerful & ergonomic
This saw has all the power one needs for its size and is weighted so you can cut all afternoon with it.

Starts very easy, has plenty of power, easy to handle. I really like the compression release and fuel level gauge.

Ease of maintenance of this product
Because of the ease of maintenance of this saw, I expect to be using it for a very long time, unlike previous saws I have owned. The saw comes apart very easily and quickly so that cleaning and maintaining it doesn't become a timely chore, which in turn will keep the saw in top shape for a long time.

455 Rancher Chain Saw
This saw handles great and is easy to use. It has more than upheld its reputation as a cutting machine. I have cut mostly oak wood and it has been impressive. I know Husqvarna has a reputation for quality, but I worry about the durability with so much plastic that is put into products these days.
