I've been using this saw for just over a year now and wanted to wait to write a review until I had become acquainted with the saw. I'll say that I am a first time chainsaw owner and user and my main uses for this saw is felling dangerous trees and cutting firewood. With that said, this saw is a great piece of machinery.I've fellen about 8 trees this past year and cut up close to 5 cords of firewood and this saw has not disappointed. Firstly it starts every single time with ease. I have yet to have any trouble starting this saw. I add fresh gas and bar oil each time I use the saw and follow the procedures and it cranks right up. The chainsaw has a great amount of power and goes through wood like butter.Some people have complained about the chain tensioner and I'm not sure what problem they are having but that tool-less tensioner is great! You simply loosen the bolt and spin the gear. Once tensioned, just tighten the bolt. Maybe some people have bar oil on the bolt? I have no idea but it works great. Similarly, the bar oiler is fine. If you rev the saw before using it and it between cuts it helps get bar oil to the chain and bar making sure the bar does not over heat. I have not had an issue with the chain burning. Lastly as far as oil leaking, just open the oil cap before storing to release the pressure and no problems.Overall the saw is great. The chain needs sharpened just like any other chainsaw and it cuts great. It starts great and has been so reliable. Does good on gas and bar oil and has been a pleasure to use. Thank Husqvarna.

The saw is full of power. Cuts great. However, I've been through multiple chains due to them being thrown and bound up. Why are they thrown? Because the chain gets loose from the vibration of the saw spinning the tensioner backwards. I spend more time tightening the chain than I do cutting wood.Today I got smart enough to jam a little stick in the dial to prevent it from spinning back. Still shouldn't have to do that.I bought it because it's a Husqvarna. You can't go wrong with a husky... or so I thought. Fix this issue and its a great saw, but that issue is a deal breaker.

I used this saw as soon as I got home. I bucked 4 medium sized Douglas Fir trees in no time at all. It cut right through them. This is my second Husqvarna chainsaw. My former saw lasted over 10 years. I would definitely recommend my new saw.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a very good chainsaw and does a great job. Start is very good. My only reservation has to do with this and other chainsaws I have owned. It needs to be more dirt tolerant for cutting roots at the base of stumps.
This saw gets sevral hours of use sevral times a month
I have cut over 50 trees and used the saw to prune up trees around my house. Mine came with a 20" bar though I will be putting a 16" one on it when my local dealer gets it in. I have gone though 2 bars on mine and worn out six chains from use. Taken down trees from 8" around to about 3' with this saw great price and power ratio. Plus the ease to get parts is why I went this over Stihl. Love this saw.

not happy with saw the sprocket at front of bar plugs up with sawdust and seizes the chain must be a design flaw in the bar. if you rev the saw 2 or 3 times after each cut it seems to prevent it from seizing I have had a small craftsman saw for 30 yrs and never had a problem so i am definatly not impressed with the 450 husq and wil not reccomend it to a friend
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great CS, VERY POOR manual
Husqvarna, is known for making great products, with that said they need to take a chainsaw to the manuals that come with their products. Their manuals are some of the most poorly written and designed manuals out there.A quick start guide would be nice idea, guys...
Gets the job done!

Very impressed with my 450e series. Spent extra $$ to find a product NOT made in CHINA and this Swedish beauty fits the bill. Powerful, plenty of torque, starts fairly easily.

just a name.
I received this 450 chainsaw for 2013 Christmas, and finally took it out to drop my neighbor's tree April 25 2014. Ran great for about one hour before it shut off on it's own. We couldn't restart it so took it to a Husqvarna service shop and found out coil went bad, meaning the sparkplug wasn't getting electricity. How is it you pay a premium price for a supposed premium product and it fails in one hour of use? Seems like you're just paying for a name.

I have been using this saw for 3 years and no a problem ever, cut 100's of trees and just keep the oil full and grease the front of the bar and keep the tank full. I have cut everything from red oak to poplar trees, and has more power than I can believe. I am going to get a longer bar 20 in or 24 in but not sure yet, or just a another larger saw. I have a bunch of pines and I could use the extra length. Great saw for the money, there are cheaper saws but you get what you pay for.
great features easy to use

a great chainsaw, an awful user's manual
I've had this saw for about 2 weeks. The cutting power and ergonomics of the Husqvarna are outstanding. I would have rated it 5 stars overall for its performance. However, the manual is very unhelpful. For example, assembly of the saw blade bar and chain are required. The procedure for this is found in the manual. What is not clear in the manual is that should you mistakenly engage the locking mechanism, it is virtually impossible to reattach the cover on the body of the saw. I had to transport it to a dealer 30 miles away. While the manual did enumerate the correct procedure, the mistake I made was critical. It should have been written in large type face and in bold.Another example is that the starting procedure, while only 6 steps is clear enough, if you mistakenly try to get the saw started with the choke enabled (can happen to a novice), it will flood and will not start for an extended period of time. Mine needed 24 hours before I could get it going. A manual should recognize that certain errors (user caused) can create difficulties that will frustrate the new user and user error possibilities should be addressed prominently in the manual.
