Great Chainsaw " Not the Book"
This item may already be listed as I didn't read every Review, I bought the 445 Husqvarna because of the good reviews and I made sure I read the Book for Start Up Procedure very carefully and followed it step by step, what do you know it started on the 2nd pull. I cut down a small Poplar Tree and my wife said I had a phone I had to take so I shut the saw down for about 10 minutes and got the book to make sure I followed it step by step to start it correctly as it's written for a warm start up, gave it multiple pulls with no luck starting it back up, waited until the next day and tried to start it for a cold start up with no luck so I started researching on line and found a lady on You Tube with a 90 second video which described how to start a Husqvarna 445 that has been flooded ( which I never flooded it) oh yea I did if you follow the instructions in the Book. Bottom line I tried what she described and it started on the first pull, YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here's the trick, place the saw on level ground, place one knee on the top of the saw right behind the handle ( to keep it stable), next use one hand and press the throttle all the way and hold it that way, next take your other hand and pull the starter cord and be ready as it will start up just as she shows in a cloud of smoke where it was flooded. Hope this helps others that are having the same problem.

Over Oiled
Great Running saw. My 18 inch Husqvarna (46cc) easily out runs my Dad's 16 inch Stihl (45cc) in the same log. The biggest problem I have is the oiling system. Leaks all over the shop. Whenever I set it down it looks like a 1972 Pinto was parked there. Full tank of oil only lasts 3/4 of a tank of fuel. That means I have to stop before I need to "gas-up", or the bar runs dry. Great saw for storm clean-up, not so much for land owners. The 0.50 kerf is great for running larger bars on smaller/lighter saws but does wear quicker. However, at the end of the day, I'm happy with my Husqvarna.

Great product. Started right up the first time.
Cuts through trees, so far, without any resistance.
The Product manual could be improved by increasing the font.
Everything else is great!

Have used the 445 for1 hour of hard work. Starts every time , does not bog down. cuts from 1 in. to 14 in wood with no trouble. This saw is replacing 16 in. bar and a 20 in. bar and bow saw of yesteryear ( two different brands ). I have put the saw up dry as I have read to and if all gos right the next time I need it it will start and run fine. Thanks for making a excellent saw. ...

For the price and use of the 445 with 16 inch bar, does a very fine job. I have cut over 25 cords of wood. This saw has set in my shop for over 6 months and has not been started until yesterday. I put fresh gas in it primed it and on 3rd pull it started right up. For a homeowner the 445 is a good choice

I started with a used 435 but I felt so under-powered so I switch for a used (but not so) 445 in a pawn shop, I could feel the difference . It is a perfect balance between power and agility since I still can climb in the tree the saw fixed on my harness. When Am back on the cold ground , it`s a monster for logging and limping with apple trees and other hard woods like maple. Just 45 cc but it doesn`t matter ,I got the skills, the sharp chain, hand tools and accessories to compensate with the XP series Jut a inconvenient , A little capricious to start when cold but it worth every cents I paid for even used.

I have cut two or more cord of fire wood since purchasing this saw. So far I am more than pleased with it's performance. I had a Homelite and was used to not having the power I wanted and some issues with starting especially when hot. This 445 has all the power I could ask for in an 18" saw. At this time it starts any time I pull the rope, hot or not. I would recommend this saw for anyone who cuts a lot of firewood, it's a good workhorse.
