Husqvarna 450 E-series 18″ Chain Saw
A few weeks back we reviewed the Husqvarna 560BTS Back Pack blower and fell in love with it. A few years back I purchased an Echo 306 from Home Depot. It seemed like a good saw until I got it home. I had to return the first one because it wouldn’t start and the second one never ran right! Finally, I couldn’t take it anymore! I needed to get a quality, reliable saw. I had my eyes set on the Husqvarna 450 18″ chain saw. It has a $389.95 MSRP and a reliable easy to start 50.2 cc... more

Awesome Chainsaw
I bought a Husqvarna 450 Prosumer Chainsaw from Power Equipment Direct about three months ago and have cut over 200 trees, and I must say this chainsaw is the best I ever owned. I waited to review this chainsaw so I could put some hours on it. I read some reviews where they stated that it was hard to start, Well I never had that problem. Matter of fact that is one of the things that I love about this saw, it is so easy to start. On one of the days I used the saw for over 10 hours straight, with... more

In The Shop After First Use...
Bought this saw from Chain Saws Direct with high hopes based on the reviews. Saw was delivered quickly and arrived in great condition. However, I received a lemon that had to be taken in for warranty repair due to a bar and chain oil leak that was obviously a problem from the factory because the day after first use, all the bar and chain oil leaked out and stained my garage floor.

I verified the cap was on tight and the bar was properly fitted... used the saw that day with no issues but... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast

"great Saw" And I Hate Everything I Buy!
I've never been satisfied with any kind of equipment I've bought in the past five years, everything is cheap Chinese junk! I'm an electrician by trade, and I use a lot of tools, the last chainsaw I purchased, was a poulan piece of junk! This 450 Husky 18" 50cc makes me smile!

Not As I Expected
I had always bought inexpensive Poulan chain saws. They worked fine for several years and when they gave up the ghost I simply purchased another one. I finally thought I should spend the extra (2.5 X) the money and buy one that many people rave about - a Husqvarna. I did, and used it this weekend. Not impressed - seems to be about the same as the Poulan. Now maybe it will last longer, but as far as its use - no difference to me.

Extremely Hard To Start - Runs Rough
I have owned three chainsaws over the past 40 years. One Stihl and two Husqvarnas. Far and away, the first Husqvarna was the best. It had the cylinder pressure relief valve, like my new 450, making it very easy to start. After years of reliable service, it was stolen. I expected the same ease of starting, operation and reliability, when I bought the 450. I have found it extraordinarily hard to start. It sputters at low RPM, requiring me to keep my finger on the throttle to keep it running. I... more

Jack,
If you haven't already, and if your saw is still within its warranty period, contact Husqvarna about the problems you're experiencing. They can have a service center local to you determine what's wrong with it and repair it free-of-charge under warranty.

The kind of difficulty you're experiencing is not common with Husqvarna saws, so there's likely something unusual causing the starting problems that you're struggling with.

Jack,
Please go to http://www.husqvarna.com/us/ and click on the dealer locator, then just put in your location and it will show you several service centers close to you. In order to remain in compliance with current regulations there is a special tool that must be used to adjust the carbs on these units, if that doesn't fix the problem they will be able to replace the carb under warranty, provided saw is still under the warranty period, if not there will be a charge.

Husqvarna 450
This is a mixed review. On the plus side, the saw has fairly simple and easy to use features, including the snap-off top casing for access to the plug, etc. The power is ample. However, within 2 days of use it went to the shop twice.

One day, I pulled too many times to count and did not start. Tech adjusted the carb. Literally the next day, it would not start again after many pulls. Back to the shop. Started at the shop but have not used since. I gave the ratings I did based on when... more

Great Husqvarna 450 Chain Saw!
Exceptionally well made saw. Would not be fair to compare with other saws as I have not used others, but Husqvarna saws are well built and have plenty of power.

Having said that, quality equipment will keep working as long as you take care of it and maintain it accordingly. Would recommend to anyone who is looking to buy a chain saw.

Great All Around Saw.
I've owned 4 chainsaws and this is by far the best I have ever used. Starting this saw is ridiculously easy, it has instructions printed on it, so it's idiot-proof. The feature I like the most is the inertial chain brake. This means that if the saw kicks back, the chain brake engages automatically just from the inertia from the sudden movement.

This amazing safety feature is often overlooked, but it was a deciding factor for me when choosing a saw. 18" blade and plenty of power for... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Start

Great Service And Saw
Shipment was right on time and saw was in perfect condition. This was a replacement for a Husky 440 saw, which I gave to a friend who needed a saw. After adjusting the chain, adding oil and fuel, about 3 pulls and it started right up. Runs and idles great. Has much more power than the 440 and I am very pleased so far.
