What customers say about "Key Specs"
Husqvarna 440 18" Gas Powered Chain Saw (967166001)
  • One of the smoothest saws I've ever used.
  • I am by no means a chainsaw expert but I got it out of the box, got it assembled and it started right up, no problems. I have used it a few times now so far it has been a great saw.
  • This chainsaw is the best. Starts easy and runs great. Trimming, cutting down trees are a snap with plenty of power.
  • Used it a few times, works really well. If you read the directions for starting it, it starts up like a charm.
  • Seems to work really good! Cut a few trees down already and I never had any problems. It idled just fine between cuts.
Husqvarna 440E 16" X-Torq Gas Powered Chain Saw (965168601)
  • Perhaps due to the narrow-kerf bar-and-chain combination, the saw made all of the cuts with no sign of laboring. It should easily handle the additional demands of an 18-inch narrow-kerf bar and chain, which I will be installing shortly.
  • All is cool, nice quality, chain adjusted is slick, bar oiler is spot on,
  • Be sure to take off the brake before removing the cover! otherwise the cover wont go back on.
  • On the backside of the cover is a mechanism to "grab" the clutch. This is a safety mechanism for when/if it kicks back during operation.
  • My only complaint is that it can bog down under load when using the full bar in hardwood, but is it only a small saw so you can't expect everything.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Husqvarna 440 18" Gas Powered Chain Saw (967166001)
  • It is lightweight starts easy and has cut every thing with ease, I would highly recommend this purchase.
  • Other than that, this is a great little saw. Easy to use and plenty of power.
  • It is strong enough to handle large trees at my house yet light enough to do the limbs.
  • I bought this one because it looks the same and is light to work with.
Husqvarna 440E 16" X-Torq Gas Powered Chain Saw (965168601)
  • Size good for my needs, starts and works well.
  • But I am very satisfied with the performance of this 16" size chainsaw.
  • I was worried that the bar might be too short, but it's really the perfect size.
  • It fits in a medium sized backpack too. You can cut logs up to 32" if you don't rush.
  • Don't buy this if you are clearing a forest or cutting down big trees. This is a good urban backyard size.

What customers say about "Features"
Husqvarna 440 18" Gas Powered Chain Saw (967166001)
  • Great chain saw, you will have to install the bar and chain when you open the package but that takes all of a few minutes. I have about 12 tanks of gas through it with no issues.
  • The chainsaw has done very well since purchasing it. Right out of the box it started as expected when following the instructions, and has started every time since.
  • The chain is easy to adjust, the kick-back works well (enabled once, so far).
  • This saw has great anti-vibration features and won't shake you apart and leave you sore the next day. It has a nice beefy engine with plenty of power for most cutting jobs.
  • Also I noticed that the bar oil leaked after shutting it down. This was checked after several starts and stops ands showed an oil slick under the saw on each rest period.
  • Chain is hard to change/tighten.
Husqvarna 440E 16" X-Torq Gas Powered Chain Saw (965168601)
  • So, if your prying and using a lot of effort to remove the cover, you just simply pull the safety bar back ( hear it click? - thats the sound of the clutch brake disengaging ), unscrew the nut holding the cover on, and the cover easily lifts off.
  • The chain tension adjuster is a great feature,no tools one hand
  • Best chainsaw ever!!! tool less features are awesome! super reliable and strong yet gentle on the environment!! HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended
  • Tools are not needed, which seems like a good feature, but it is quite difficult sometimes to adjust the tension on this after you have been sawing for a couple of hours.
  • There was a learning curve, not just in operating the chainsaw, but in removing the "dust cover". Directions are weak. The cover is removed to install or swap out the chain.

What customers say about "Power"
Husqvarna 440 18" Gas Powered Chain Saw (967166001)
  • It mostly great. But the fuel tank breather isn't working right so it stalls when it's warmed up.
  • Overall the saw performs flawlessly. I've used amsoil products in it and seen excellent performace.
  • Well pleased with this product. Plenty of power for its size.
  • It starts and runs.The performance is not what I was expecting.
Husqvarna 440E 16" X-Torq Gas Powered Chain Saw (965168601)
  • Have to trim quite a few trees with this one. Excellent power. Starts right up if you follow the right steps as described in the manual.
  • As for operation I love the weight to power ratio as this saw has been used to limb, brush and block over 17 red oak trees that ranged from 14" to 29" at 4 ft.
  • The engine runs well and develops good power for the 16" chain.
  • I bought this to because I needed something with the power to rip twelve to fourteen inch trees for lathe work.
  • Great power in this thing too. I would buy another one without blinking.
