I have not used a chain saw before I purchased the 450 and I found it very easy to handle.

Great New 450
Having only bought the new 450 a few weeks ago, not had a lot of chance to use it, although at this point, I am really satisfied with the easy starting, "zippy power" lower vibration and nice balance. It is a partner to my old #55 that I've run for years. I don't know the RPM difference between the two saws but the new 450 seems to be considerably faster. So far 100% satisfied.

Happy so far
I had a 350 before this that I had a problem with but I gave you another chance . If I have a problem with this one I will have to try something else. Thanks

Almost dummy proof
Husqvarna almost made the product dummy proof. I liked how they numbered the steps for starting it. Not having much experience with a saw giving a step by step really helped. I thought it had plenty of power for it's size & weight. So far the only thing I haven't liked was after it sat for awhile it started leaking bar chain oil. After servicing it I was informed that it is common but an easy fix so nothing really to worry about.

husqvarna 450 chainsaw
we bought the saw last year because my dad dropped a tree on our old ranger 55 and crushed it. Best feature is the chain adjustment being on the side of the saw instead of in the front next to bar. The saw is 5 CCs less than the old one but it cuts just as well and is alot lighter. The downside of the saw is that the handle is connected to the saw by springs to help with the vibration but my knuckles usually end up hitting the chain brake and it's a little hard to start cold and warm. Overall a extremely well performing saw and is worth the price.

What A Great Saw!!! Very Impressed!!!
As a semi-retired tree service owner I must say I am very impressed with the Husky 450. In my business days I only used XP series saws from Husqvarna. I did my studying, and settled on the 450 for its cost, weight and motor size. I used this saw for over six hours and what a dream. Nice handling, and good power. With its 20 inch bar and chain it made the storm clean-up an easy task from our recent Northeaster that dumped the heavy wet snow and damaged so many trees here in CT. I highly recommend this saw as a good contender for landowners or someone looking for a great performing, low maintenance saw, at an affordable price. Its safe, relaible and just another great saw from Husqvarna. If money is no object then grab an XP series saw, but if you want a saw at a great price for the occassional jobs around the property and more, than get a Husqvarna 450. Its Awesome!

Very good saw!
This is a very good chain saw the only down side to it is that it needs an adjustment screw for the bar oil it uses too much oil and didn't want to pay alot more for another model!! Just my thought but other than that I love this saw and use it often!
