450 Hard to start
Harder to start than as advertised. Has more parts and pieces
than the Stihl it replaced. Takes more time to clean the bar and tighten the chain than the Stihl. Why did I buy a Husqvarna instead of a Stihl, because the Stihl was horrible to start. Hope as the 450 breaks in, it becomes easier to start.

followed the start-up directions, and started in no time, now that im used to it it starts up in seconds, cuts smoothly, and without hesitation.

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.
