FYI, VMI is an authorized Husqvarna Preferred dealer (= all of the Husqvarna products are certified manufacturer refurbished).

More pictures of what's in the box here. [imgur.com]

Return policy [vminnovations.com], any product found to be defective or incorrect will be replaced without any restocking or shipping fees.

The 455's are made in Sweden (image attached). The 240 chainsaw has a plate that says Husqvarna AB, SWEDEN under the serial number (attached pic or here: http://i.imgur.com/Ke4df.jpg?1 ). However, the box of 240 says assembled in the USA.

Keep in mind Husqvarna owns poulan so if its says made in USA its actually a Poulan (made at what was the Poulan plant with poulan parts.

You can actually look in parts manual and see same part numbers on them are same as whats in a labeled Poulan, and if its made in Sweden..well its a true Husqvarna.. MAYBY this doesn't matter and Poulan quality is now the same level as Huaqvarna but I doubt it.

Its also the same with the lawntractors as most of the lower price Husqvarna as HD are really Poulans...

This is my opinion and that I have gathered from during research on the net. Maybe my comments are flawed but search and see ....
From talking to chainsaw aficionados the way you can tell the American and Swedish saws apart is by their muffler. They apparently have 2 separate muffler designs.

I pulled the trigger on the 16". Looks like the refurbs are hit or miss. Hope I get one of the good ones!

I think Jim Bob has an extra trailer in his front yard. Double wide. He told me about it last weekend at the pig roast while we were drinking his moonshine.

I have a little Poulan 14" and I've cut down quite a few trees/limbs... it's a little beast for $120 or whatever they sell for now. I've probably cut split 2-3 cords on my 1 acre. I can go to walmart and buy a chain same day for $12... but I need a larger chainsaw at times.

Husq and Stihl are the cadillacs of chainsaws... if I could get a good refurb 18-20" for the price of a new Poulan... I'd take the Husq or Stihl. But I've heard these refurbs are hit/miss... sometimes you get a almost new one... other times they are missing stuff or don't work so great.

if you look at the tree companies... they almost always have Husqvarna or Stihl.

Who said Echo was #2???

I found this...
http://forestry.about.com/library...insaws.htm

With over 3,100 votes cast, Husqvarna is the chain saw of choice as voted on by About Forestry readers. Here are the percentages preferred and ranked by brand of saw through October, 2001:
Husqvarna - 41%; Stihl - 40%; Jonsered - 7%; Echo - 4%; All others - 8%
As you can see, voting for a favorite saw is extremely close when separating between first and second place brands. Husqvarna and Stihl are by far the most popular saws in America.

I'm no serious logger, and I've known for ages that Husqvarna is one of the best out there. I haven't needed to use/own a chainsaw in 10 years, and just needed to clean up mother's cottage that had been left alone for far too long, and I knew a hand-saw wasn't going to cut it (NO, pun wasn't intended).

I did rent one a couple month back (as that's what the place carried), but the safety kept kicking back. Glad that it worked, but too 'well'. I was less than an hour over the 4 hour rental, so the guy only charged me for 4 (because I had issues). I asked him if I were to buy one, what company I should get. He said Husqvarna and (other company I can't remember) were by far the two best out there. And he particularly likes the other company (wish I could remember) a little better for that same reason about the safety kicking back, as it's a common issue with Husqvarna he said.

I still need to go back as I didn't finish with the chainsaw work I need to do, and I'm debating buying one or renting again. Although I don't really foresee using it anytime soon (other than this one more time).
