What customers say about "Key Specs"
Jonsered CS2250 18" Gas Chainsaw
  • I fell trees for a living and I'd rather use my Jonsered over my 450e for dropping the tree anyday.
  • My family only uses jonsered and I found the perfect one that's right for me jonsered is a very reliable brand and will get the job done!
  • The chain lubrication is gravity fed it will feed oil until it's empty that might take a while.
  • Chain lubrication seems ample at idle but poor during actual cutting.
  • The chain tightening assembly did not hold up well under use.
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!

What customers say about "Features"
Jonsered CS2250 18" Gas Chainsaw
  • Easy to start even after a couple hours of continuous use.
  • Chain tensioner is a wyrm type with the adjustment screw on the face of the clutch cover so unless you're used to Husqvarna it may take a minute to get used to.
  • This chain saw is a great deal for the price.
  • Great Saw - Nice to have a saw that has the power, length, and a great chain to really cut up wood.
  • The chain will not rotate and it leaks oil and smokes.
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.

  • It seems sturdy and powerful and did exactly what I expected it to do.
  • The clutch is also decent and the engine has plenty of 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 .
