What customers say about "Key Specs"
Husqvarna 450 2-Cycle Gas Powered Chain Saw (966906738)
  • This is great for cutting/making firewood the bar is not too long ,and it only weighs 10 pounds . So it is very easy to maneuver.
  • Has a built in container and auto release of chain/bar lube - so you dont have to manually apply.
  • I have the 18" bar installed. This is a great size for collecting firewood in the forest, to clearing trees/limbs on your property. It starts easy and has been simple to maintain for all my uses. Great tool and a great price.
  • The oiling/lubrication for the chan/bar, is just right, using the Husqvarna oil. As an average homeowner, I can endorse and recommend this powerfull chain saw!
  • THE ENGINE RUNS GREAT! HOWEVER, TWO THINGS WENT WRONG. EITHER THE BAR WAS BAD OR THE CHAIN WAS BAD.

  • The smooth start and anti vibration are a must have, which made this saw a pleasure to use.
  • The 18" bar is more than enough for me. I'm not Paul bunyan, but I do cut like 4 cords a year.
  • This is rated like #2 but it leaks bar oil like crazy..cant get no answers why?
  • The only drawback is an 18 inch bar. I haven't experienced that as a limitation yet though. Starts with ease runs great.

What customers say about "Features"
Husqvarna 450 2-Cycle Gas Powered Chain Saw (966906738)
  • Either way, the saw has endured hours of use. As of now, it seems to be getting better with use. It starts easier, rev's quicker and has more power than when new.
  • We cut wood to heat our home in N. Wisconsin. I have used the 450 for 4 years. Starts easy and is a champ cutting oak, maple and birch. Very happy with it. Tough saw.
  • Easy starts, stays running & gets the job done without the frustration of a saw that doesn't work right.
  • Cut thru a 40" tree yesterday. had it laid over and bucked in a an hour , hour and a half. didn't slow down once. as for durability I inly had it for 3 or 4 months. but It's still runs great. starts easy. think about it the saw was made in 2009 , still running I'm assuming like it was brand new
  • Used the brand new saw every weekend for three months to cut firewood rounds, maybe 15+ cords. Then like a light switch started to have troubles. Chain would begin stalling in middle of rounds and clutch would begin to overheat. Not a chain or bar issue, tried new of both.
Husqvarna 450E 18" Gas-Powered Chain Saw (967651101)
  • It has little/no vibration in the grips and the controls are all very easy to operate.
  • The Husky starts easier. It's so easy I often forget to use the compression button.
  • The shocks on the handle! They really cut down on vibrations to the point where if the saw did not make any sound, you would not be able to tell you are even cutting with a chainsaw. So cool!
  • Best feature is the pull start "smart start" feature. This makes it SOOO easy to start the saw. You use a bare minimum of effort to pull the cord to start it. It is so easy to pull the cord and start it.
  • The only downside is the Husky isn't completely tool-free like the Stihl.

What customers say about "Power"
Husqvarna 450 2-Cycle Gas Powered Chain Saw (966906738)
  • There is also enough power to get the job done. I originally wanted to get a cheaper Remington model or Poulan im glad i went with the proven Husqvarna.
  • This thing has great power. It's quieter than the others. It starts on the first pull EVERY TIME. The trees don't know what hit them!
  • great chain saw. Kicks the ass off my old "wild thing". This has plenty of power, great handling, and really slices through the logs.
  • Got the chainsaw when the price dipped a little sweetening the deal. The saw is easy to crank and has at least ample power.
  • This saw is very easy to start, operate and maintain. Has good power! Glad that I went with this one and not another that had slightly less cc's .
Husqvarna 450E 18" Gas-Powered Chain Saw (967651101)
  • One cool little feature is the gas tank has a white plastic "window" to gauge how much gas is left.
  • This has plenty of power, great handling, and really slices through the logs.
  • The saw is easy to crank and has at least ample power.
  • The 50cc engine is perfect size for plenty of power but is not too much to scare you.
