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.

450 Chainsaw features
The saw starts easily,(I like the primer bulb). It has plenty of power and it has a good weight to power (not too heavy for long time use). The saw appears to be made of quality material and construction. I have owned many chainsaws over the years and notice that all have more plastic parts these days. I hope this saw will prove to be durable over the long term. As for the few times I have used it so far it has preformed in an excellent manner.

Hard to take apart and put back together!
Do not buy this saw! It's bad features outweigh the good. If you don't take the chain cover off EXACTLY right (break disengage)...then you will have to take it to the shop and risk breaking the cheap plastic inside the housing to fix it. Yes, pieces get lodged in other pieces! This at least happens twice a year. Other saws have simpler mechanisms that make taking the chain on and off very easy. This model is the worst I have ever seen for ease of operator maintenance. I seriously regret the day I bought it. You could potentially spend just as much time fixing this saw as you would actually getting work done. I don't have a clue how this product got any good reviews at all. Maybe their saw has a different mechanism? I got the bad one. Id go with any other saw but this one. If I had not bought this saw in another state then I would have taken it back the second I realized it had that unwieldy mechanism. Now I'm out hundreds of dollars and just want to get rid of it and get something I can get work done with. I don't want repairs done under warranty... I want something that I can get work done with and not have to deal with this ridiculousness.

Great saw, my bad luck
When I purchased this saw from eBay it arrived with a broke trigger. I then had it laying on it's side and the gas tank leaked at the seam. It took a three weeks to get the parts approved and repaired by a Husky dealer. Overall great saw would buy another one from a local dealer next time

Best I've Ever Used!
This chainsaw has exceeded my expectations! It starts easy, runs smooth, has lots of power and great features. I find it very easy to maneuver and the cut is excellent. I also love the safety features. This is a great chainsaw!
