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

Chainsaw Is Great Manual Not So Much!
I bought the 445, but it had an 18" bar and chain, not 16". Once I figured it out it started up quickly and cut oak and maple logs clean and fast.

My only complaint so far is that the instruction manual is almost worthless - pictures are tiny and poorly done and only the very essential info is covered - nothing on troubleshooting.

Furthermore, there is little online tech service. For a beginner that is a problem - a saw of this quality and price should do better.

Highly Recommended
For decades I have owned STIHL saws and recently found them hard to start, decided to switch to this model #: 445, and very pleased with choice, easy to start with decompression feature and primer, well balanced and powerful enough for dropping mature oak and maple trees,
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Reliable, Easy to start

An overall excellent chainsaw for around the yard. Always starts easily and cuts like a larger saw. I have had smaller Huskys in the past and have always got great use out of them.

Great Chainsaw
Best chainsaw I've ever used. Powerful, easy to start, low vibration. Cuts through hardwoods with ease. Handed it to my wife and she said "wow" this is fun, no sarcasm. Says it all. Watch the numerous videos on YouTube on how to properly start these chainsaws and it's a snap.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Features

Very Impressive Chainsaw....
Haven't put a lot of hours on the saw yet. Has very good power, runs smoothly, starts easily. Seems well made. Time tells all tales but it very well may be the best saw I've owned. Big step up from the box store models.

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

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

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
