  2 Questions
Q: is there a reason why the 445 has no bar sprocket? This is speaking of the sprocket at the end of the bar that takes the friction from the chain off the bar correct?
by Robert Millsaps from Tennessee on March 02, 2014

A: Robert,

You are correct. The bar sprocket reduces chain/bar friction and reduces chain stretching. This allows more of the power from the engine to be used pulling the chain through wood rather than pulling the chain against the bar. Saws without a bar sprocket perform better in wet muddy conditions due in part to the fact that there are simply fewer moving parts involved.

The Husqvarna 440E has a bar sprocket and the following link takes you to the 440E.

Husqvarna 440E (18") 40cc Consumer Gas Chainsaw
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: I am looking for a saw similar to a ~14 yr old Husky 55 that recently died. I am retired and have ~ 10 acres of woods around my house that I am occasionally cleaning up the dead falls and cutting firewood for wood stove. The 55 was a good size & weight for my needs, but I would be happy to spend less money than a clone of that saw would cost. I have a 20" and a 18" bar and a box full of chains (0.325 pitch/0.05 gauge) so although not a deal breaker, being able to salvage my old bars and chains would be a bonus. What are your thoughts of a 16" 445 that could also use these other bars? Thoughts about 445 compared to say a 450? If 450 is significantly better saw I could live with selling/giving away my old chains. Thanks
by Larry Boone from North Carolina on July 06, 2011

A: I think that the 445 would be a great fit for you. It seems like a no brainer, especially that you have additional chains and bars. The 450 is not significantly different than the 445 model.

Prosumer grade is half way between Consumer grade and Professional Grade - it's great for homeowners that only want to buy a tool once and are willing to pay a little more; and for professionals that may only need a tool every so often, so are willing to spend a little less.

This Husqvarna 445 has an engine that meets strict California emissions standards (CARB), which is very unusual for chain saws. The engine runs smoothly, and starts with up to 50% less effort than conventional 2-stroke... more

Follow Instructions Only To Start Saw, Then Ignore Instructions
Must have an easy starting saw. I ran a Husky 51 for 25 years and just traded on a 455. Saw started easily as I followed instruction STEPS 1-5 on decals on saw. However, after shutting off to tidy work site, went back to start saw and followed STEPS 1, 2, and 3 as instructed for "warm" saw, saw would NOT start.

Walked away for a moment, came back, pulled cord, and immediate start, and from then on, after stopping saw for odds and ends, NEVER did anything but pull cord with... more
Pros: Price, Light Weight, Lots Of Convenience Features Added
Cons: Bad Instructions, Had To Trouble-shoot Starting Issue Myself On First Day Of Use

New 445 Worked Great
I brought my newly purchased 445 to the lake last weekend and cut down two large pine trees. The saw started the first time after 5 pulls and ran great. I used two tanks of gas and the saw started easily after refueling.

I was very satisfied with the ordering process and the fast delivery (3 days from the time I ordered it). I was really liked the 11 lb. weight compared to the heavy Mac 610 I have been using since 1980.

Outstanding Saw!
I've used this saw off/on for a year now as an average homeowner. I say off/on because the saw will sit for a couple of months in between uses. No matter how long it sits, it ALWAYS fires up and runs smooth on the first pull. I've had cheap electric chainsaws in the past, there's just no comparison in power and performance. Everything about the saw feels solid and well built. I bought mine after a lot of comparisons between the similar priced Stihl that was more plastic than metal. If... more

Excellent Buy, Incredible Upgrade From Cheap Saws
I expected high quality out of this saw, since I also own a 455 20" Husky saw, and I was not disappointed. The 16" Craftsman/Poulan junk I had been using for limbing just can't compare to the power and cut of this saw.

Right out of the box it cut just like a small clone of the 455 saw. If you're used to using cheap $100+ saws, then this saw will be a shock to the system.

I chose this saw because of it's large displacement in the 16" bar length to do limbing and cut up... more

Best Purchase Ever
We lose trees (3 acres and 100+ trees) every year to storms, and we also drive every year for our firewood which we cut at our brother's house. This is our first chainsaw, for two fallen Oaks (16" and 18") and two Pines (20").

My wife expected to pay $200 based on box store choices, and I expected to need at least an 18" saw. We were both set straight after a day of research and help from Chain Saws Direct customer service (Elise). We opted for the 16" 445 to... more

"Thank you Elise! You certainly steered us right. Nice layout, guys. My only recommendation would be that you provide info about the advantages of the chains in the prosumer line, or at least for the 445. Don't sell yourselves short."

Yard Mess
Needed a new saw to replace my 35 year old McCulloch after a big storm dropped piles of limbs in my yard. The Husqvarna showed up quick and worked great right out of the box. Easy to start, plenty of power and made short work of my mess.

Check The Spark Plug!
In great anticipation, I took out my Husky 445 out of the box, fueled and oiled it, followed the directions to start it. After an hour of fruitlessly pulling the cord, I still couldn't start it. I called the help line and he directed me to a local store to get some help, but they didn't have a trained technician. So I investigated it to find if it wasn't getting any spark. It turns out the plug was loose and I had flooded the engine. I tightened it and tried again for two more hours, but still... more

The Mighty Mite Saw
Owned for 21/2 years, this saw has never let me down. Good power, good balance with 18" bar or less. Even when my old go to saw was having trouble, this saw was there to pick up the slack and it loves to work.

I have had to replace fuel line once due to my error of leaving fuel in it over the winter and the fuel eat the fuel line I store it properly just the once I forgot fuel was still in it.

Short of that, it's been a truly great saw to cut with and if you follow the manual and... more

My 445 Husqy.
I had borrowed a neighbor's saw for a couple of firewood cutting weekends. He kinda got me into wood cutting after going with him to cut & collect some for his house. He has since moved away with his saw leaving me with the bug to get out there and no saw.

Chain Saws Direct has answered my questions with great reviews both good & bad to help me decide which saw to purchase.

Great Saw
Just bought the 445. Has 50cc on the info and 18" bar. Tried it on some camping fire wood. 16-18 inch logs, like knife thru hot butter. Used to have a Poulan, not anymore. Do what the manual says, starts on the second pull. Couldn't be happier.
