Good design making for ease of use. Controls are easily accessible, i.e.; combined stop & start control, chain brake for safety, throttle control & throttle lockout.

The best chainsaw I ever had
Love it, has everything a homeowner could ever ask for in a saw!

I bought this saw after hurricane Irene blew through eastern N.C. and knocked over dozens of trees in our neighborhood. This thing ate through 100 year old pine and oak trees like it was cutting butter. I also have a Husqvarna weed wacker and I love how easy it is to replace the line on the spool. Great products, would recommend Husqvarna to any one.

Even though it's heavier than my old chainsaw (another brand), the 450 feels light (and I say this as an older woman using it). It's well balanced, doesn't vibrate, starts easily (after I figured out all the stupid little pictures. Words would be much easier!) and cuts well. I've run it through some big dry locust and oak logs. It took a while on the oak but made it through without any real trouble. It zipped on through the somewhat smaller (14") locust. So far, I'm very happy with it.

I bought this chainsaw for cleanup for Hurricane Irene and for rergular use since I have a wood burning stove. The saw is great, plenty of power easy to use. I strongly recommend it

450 is a nice saw and be aware
with the small width chain it does bind easier than previous models. Somewhat expected but really was made aware on our first use.

Should've bought a Steil
3 hours and it is impossible to start. Took it in for service, put in new fuel, official Husky oil - still won't start. Hard to rate when it won't start.

Bought this Husqvarna 450 from Lowes just to use as a general use ground saw for my crew. It was a husky so i was happy bout that but it was bought at a big box store so I was a little nervous. We fired this sucker up with a few purge pumps then a few pulls with the choke on till it sputtered than 2 pulls with choke off and she fired right up. My crew and i love this saw very easy to handle not very heavy and plenty of power for limbing and bucking trees of about 20 inch diameter!!! The crew liked it so much that i bought another one the next day. Now i know they say this is a mid range ocasional use saw but we have had ours for bout 7 months now and with routine maintnance they still run great!!! Easy to start and plenty of power for medium sized trees!!! I highly recomend this saw!!! My crew and i only run Husqvarna and Jonsered saws!!! Take care!!!
