Great light all round saw.

published

I was tossing up between the Husky 450 and the Stihl Farmboss and the lighter weight of the Husky sold me. I use this saw for cutting firewood (hardwood approx. 300mm diameter) and also for felling larger trees at home. After using a 55cc Farmboss then mine you do notice a slight power difference yet the Husky does not feel underpowered. The weight is a huge advantage and I have had no issues with reliability. Great saw.

Fantasic hard working small saw

published

This saw is awesome nice and light easy too start and will happily cut its full bar length all day long. On a regular basis i do this sharpening the chain every tank. If you are just doing general pruning, lopping and regular firewood gathering this is the perfect sized saw.
My only complaint is the brake is too close to the forward grip.

Great value and performance.

published

Very functional and easy to control. Has good power and not too heavy or cumbersome for a day of cutting firewood. A great mid to large range saw for general farm use that is absolutely trouble free. I have owned four different brands over the years and the 450 Husky has proved the most consistent performer for the past 3 years.
Easy maintenance in the field, chain tension adjustment, self cleaning, reliability.
Nothing really. I sometimes have difficulty with hot restarting which can result in some trial and error on the controls.

I can only hope that your Husqvarna is nothing like the junky 55 Rancher that I own. I wish now that I had bought a real saw, a Stihl.

Have been using chainsaws for years and recently bought a 450II to complement by big Dolmar. First outing went great for about an hour cutting firewood up to 200mm diameter then suddenly just threw a chain. There was no stress or clamping by the limb. I needed to remove burrs before chain would refit the bar. Did it again trimming some bushes at home. Is this a common problem. Was my tensioning incorrect had about 5-8 mm lift on chain when pulled up by hand to check. Any advice would be great

Have never had this problem. can only suggest you get professional advice, maybe lack of oil as burring is not too common.

I have also had this problem. 5 to 8 mm of lift is too much. Should be tighter but still pull freely around bar. If chain comes off every burr on the back of the chain will carefully need to be removed. I use a dremel, else the chain will bind. Main problem for chain coming off is too much stretch from overheating due to insufficient oil and too lose to start with. Frequently check tension. Periodic cleaning of the bar and oil groves as they tend to block easily and run the chain dry

Why is the Husq. 450e saw only $359 in the US and $ 959 here???

Good question. Why is everything cheaper in the USA despite the parity in the dollar. I expect higher taxes and markups by the retailers here may be the answer
