What customers say about "Key Specs"
Jonsered CS2245 16" Gas Chainsaw
  • Runs great! Assembled in the USA. Has the Husqavarna sweden badge. So it's not a poulon. I use only amsoil 2 stroke oil.
  • Spent the day running it and was very happy with the power. The saw cuts as good or better than my best echo.
  • It's a Jonsered. It works and works. Never gets tired and runs strong.
Husqvarna 445 18" Gas Powered Chain Saw (966955338)
  • It has plenty of power for an 18" bar.
  • No problem starting hot or cold. It cuts well and is low vibration.
  • On it's initial run, it was cutting through the Elms like butter, and I wasn't even running it at full throttle due to the break in period. It doesn't vibrate too much either.
  • The chain brake had a problem right out of the box but was quickly fixed at the store where I purchased it.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Jonsered CS2245 16" Gas Chainsaw
  • And it started on the 3rd pull out of the box! For such a powerful saw it’s light and easy to start looking forward to running it for many years to come!
  • It has a great power to weight ratio and is a solid performing saw.
  • I needed a "small & light" saw to cut a lot of brush & Texas Juniper/Cedar, and my other saws were much too large & heavy for light work.
Husqvarna 445 18" Gas Powered Chain Saw (966955338)
  • Light weight for when I'm cutting for a few hours or going through the woods with it.
  • The weight to power ratio is perfect and allows me to work all day with out getting worn out.
  • Good buy and user friendly. Light weight.
  • This saw is amazing!!! Light weight, a lot of power.

What customers say about "Features"
Jonsered CS2245 16" Gas Chainsaw
  • Its an excellent preforming machine and im glad i have it. The Turbo air cleaning is the real deal it actually works and you hardly have to clean the filter
Husqvarna 445 18" Gas Powered Chain Saw (966955338)
  • Starting is easy hot or cold, I like the decompression button alot for cold starts.
  • The fuel level window is a nice plus as well.
  • Startup is easy and certain in all temperatures. Access to the spark plug and air filter is also easy.
  • The saw is designed to run out of fuel before bar oil if you fill both tanks at the same time.
  • The chain adjustment mechanism is much improved from my 142 -- a big plus since keeping your chain properly adjusted is extremely important for reliability, functionality and safety.
  • Hi, All the ads tend to show this product to be identical to the 450, but it isn't. The 450 has a two nut attachment for the bar and when I got this saw I found that this machine only has one. Really not good.

Husqvarna 445 18" Gas Powered Chain Saw (966955338)
  • It is powerful enough for a homeowner but may be a little light for commercial use.
  • This chainsaw for its size is very powerful! it has easily cut through anything that I have presented to it.
