I have followed the instructions on the saw and in the manual since I bought the chain saw last year and I have had trouble starting it just about every single time. I've even had someone watch me with the manual to make sure I did it right. It eventually started but by then I was too tired to use it. Oh, and "a trip to the Husquevarna shop" is not just a jaunt down the street. It can be expensive in gas usage. Is it possible you build some "lemons"?

Chain Saw review.
I've had and used many different chain saws, this model is by far the easiest to use as well as being far superior to all the others. note: even the chain is staying as sharp as new after 1 month of use of approx. 20 hrs.
Thanks, I highly recommend this product and have done so to others.

If you follow the starting directions printed on the saw, it starts on the second pull every time, very good power to weight ratio, well balanced, a pleasure to use, the only down side is the chain size, I wish it had a bigger pitch chain, no problem though, when this bar and chain are wore out I will switch them to a larger one.

I have the 450 rancher 20" bar model that I got a lowes. Bought this saw to clean up after a storm and take down a few trees on my lot. Operating and setup Instructions were clear and saw started right. Cut through trees with very little effort. I look forward to getting to use it again.

awesome saw for price
This saw is a great value, power to weight is impressive.
I have been running saws for a long time between fire fighting and firewood cutting, and I'm definitely impressed.

Brand New, will not start
Just purchased a few days ago. Purchase was based on all of the good reviews that I had read. Fueled and put chain oil in it, followed the start up procedures from the manual. Will not start, gave up after an hour. I'm having problems even before I got it registered. Do not buy.
