Hello everyone, I hope this review is helpful... I have had my 440 For a while now and have definitely put it through the paces at the ranch. I have seen peoples problems with the starting mechanism... my response to this is; have you read the instructions? The instructions state that in order to start the saw you must prime it and pull the pull string 5 times to disengage the starting mechanism.... After you disengage this, the saw will start like every other saw. You have to give light pulls not hard thrusts. After the saw has warmed up and has been used a while it gets easier to start... I have found that if you put the saw on the ground and you depress the throttle with your boot, it starts easier cold.My pros for this saw outweigh the cons by a lot.Pros: I love the weight of the saw, it is extremly easy to handle and is controllable in strange situations with weird logs. It is amazing of how little fuel it takes to run this saw, I worked a 9 hour day on the ranch using the saw the whole time and I only had to refuel once, but i had to add bar oil about twice.the only con that I have is the fact that It can only accept a 18 Inch bar. I also wish that the starting mechanism was not there, when you need the saw in a hurry, the mechanism get in your way!.Other than that it is an overall great saw and I would suggest it over many other saws for medium use.

The 440e does what it is supposed to do and does it well. HOWEVER...the tool less chain tensioner is NOT one of Husky's better ideas. When you need to remove the bar or chain its not too bad to remove. But getting it back on is a nightmare! Took me AN HOUR to get-it back on. Give me 2 hex nuts to hold the bar to the saw ANY DAY! I'll' deal with the inconvenience thank you! Did the engineers who design this ACTUALLY TRY to reassemble it? The manual is also a weak point. It says nothing about E85 gas. I called customer service about this and they answered my inquiry. Th manual also INCORRECTLY states that it is OK to use 87 Octane gas. NOT TRUE! Go to the Husky website and they recommend 89 Octane gas NOT 87. If I had not gone to the website I would never know this. While were at it how about a BETTER pictorial with a written description about re installing the bar/chain tool less tensioner that I am griping about? And make sure the picture ACTUALLY MATCHES the 440e saw PLEASE? Yeah eventually I figured it out, but I will not buy another 440e.

from Central Point Oregon
Paid about $200 ,best investment I've made so far.At first it was hard to start.A spark plug change and a switch to non ethanol fuel,runs great.Two not six pumps on primer bulb ,choke,start and run.Very good handling for me.I have both an 18 bar and a 16 bar.Great Power,good for firewood cutting as well as general cleanup around the property.Bought the carrying case,extra files and spare spark plug.Love this little saw,every bit as good as the competition,maybe better.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this saw!
About Me Professional
I use the Husqvarna premixed fuel and this thing runs like a champ. Starts almost every time on the first pull. I really believe the people who complain about this saw are just not the sharpest tools in the shed. Cuts great, good power, very lightweight, no vibrations, i man i couldnt ask for more from a saw. I really like the tool less chain tensioner. Works great!

Best chainsaw I have ever owned!
from Wyoming, IL
Hello everyone. First, a little background information. I am a woodturner and use a chainsaw on a regular basis. I use it to fell trees and process my turning blanks. I make both crosscut and ripping cuts when processing my bowl blanks. I had a Poulan Pro 4218 chainsaw that was a piece of junk from the very start. That saw would idle and run just fine until I started cutting timber with it. Once I began cutting timber, it would lose all power and die like it was out of fuel. I attempted to adjust the carburator to no avail. That saw just refused to cut timber.On my birthday, my Mom and Dad saw the trouble I was having with the Poulan Pro, so they went out and purchased me a Husqvarna 440e with an 18" bar. From what I understand, this is now a discontinued saw. Why? I do not know. Because this is the best chainsaw I have ever owned and operated. It is light, easy to start, does not use much fuel, and cuts wood like an angry little beaver on steroids! This saw is amazing! I have cut soft wood and hard wood with it and have not come across anything it will not handle yet. It handles crosscut and rip cuts in hardwoods like a champ. If I had any complaints about this saw, I would say it takes quite a long time to warm up. Other than that, I do not have any complaints whatsoever.
I would buy this product again

The saw worked great and I was satisfied . The only problem I had with it was the chain was bent and kept coming off once I purchased a new chain the saw ran and cut prefect .
This is a great litte saw for the money

No customer service on weekends?
from Cary, NC
I don't own one, but was seriously considering the 440 E-series. But having no customer support on weekends, when most customers this product is marketed for will be using, was a deal breaker.
from Powell, tn
Used saw one year and needed to replace blaze. Could not get the face plate back on. It now set in a plastic box, no repair shop in our area is open on weekends.
