I used my new 450 three time so far. Starts right up - make sure you read the starting instructions. Cut through an 18" oak with no problem. Recommend the 20" bar. Weight and ergonomics are good.

I purchased the Husq 440 this morning. About 15 minutes into cutting, the chain and bar froze up, would run, but the chain would not move. Brought it back and upgraded to the 550 because they did not have another 440 on the shelf and I needed it now. I should have started here with the 450 because this is a good saw. started easy-2 pulls brand new out of the box compared to the 440 which took about 8-10 minutes to get running. I will tell people to pay the extra money for the 450.

This is the hardest starting chainsaw I have ever used.
It is not the easy starting chainsaw it is advertised to be.
You have no energy or time left to cut wood once you get it started.

A fast wood-eating machine
I have two other chainsaws (16 McCulloch which is over 25 years old and still runs good and never gave me problems. Also have a newer 18" Poulan Pro which is never reliable.) Bought this Husq450 (20") so I could finish cleaning up from Sandy's wrath of uprooting a few Beech trees which were from the beginning of time. These are huge trees and when they came down they also took five other medium size trees down with them. Needless to say I had my work cut out for me. After spending too many days getting frustrated with the Poulan I spent a lot of time researching before I broke down and bought the Husq450. Without a doubt it was the easiest chain saw to start and I did not find any problems with it's weight. Since this saw is balanced perfectly you don't get tired. This saw just chews up the wood and asks for more!

My little Buddy
Well this is my first chainsaw and I love it I live in south Texas and all I cut is mesqit its like a hot kinve thru butter as long as keep the chains sharp I only see tow bad things in this saw. It leaks oil so I turn it on its side that seem to work and the other thing it could use abit more torque but its a good saw I have drop the saw from over ten feet and started right up and back to work

This saw is a great machine! You will not be disappointed if you decide to get one. I cut down three apple trees as soon as I bought it with out hitch. Only one thing that I found was that the chain dulled easy but not a big thing as long as you keep it sharp.

This is a great small saw.
I worked in the woods for 8 years so I no saws.This is the first time I have ever bought a Husqvarna.It is the best little saw I have ever run.I tried the 450 out on beach,yellow birch and rock maple all 14 inches threw.It cut a little slower then my big saw but I do not care about that seams the saw is so light and easy to use.I got a 4 year warrenty on it also.The only problem I had was I sawed all my wood up now I can't use the saw anymore for a while.As a result I am a bit sad about that.I do not like the 450 I love it.
