Bought this product to clear my property. Use it for several long days and it performed well. Bought Husqvarna sharpening kit for it, this kit sharpens chain easy and accurately. This is the first Husqvarna product I have ever purchased and so far I am very satisfied.

Expensive Paper weight
I had owned a Stihl chainsaw for over 15 years and never had the bar plug up. I used my brand new Husqvarna twice and already had to take it into the service center, as the sprocket in the bar locked up. Service Center said because of wet saw dust in the bar. I advised that that is normal, as Self oiling chain + saw dust = wet saw dust. I called Husqvarna to advise of issue. I spoke with Jessica in Escalations x8398 and she advised that you must clean the bar regularly to avoid this problem. I advised that this happened during operation, she said my only option was to see if the retailer would accept the return of the unit, as she did not consider it defective.
I advise d her that I will never again buy another product from Husqvarna again, as this is not normal for a chainsaw.

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.
