I'm a Stihl guy, but some of these seem like a decent deal if you're in the market.

Not sure about Huskys, but the newer model Stihl's with the better emissions don't run quite as well as the older ones and cost about 2/3 more than the older models due to the metals used in the emmision controls.

Huskys have the advantage of being able to get chains and bars quickly from Lowe's if necessary. That's a good thing for a homeowner.... Lowe's also carries a decent Husqvarna case which will carry the saw, plus all the other things you might need at the same time (mix oil, bar oil, grease, scrench, gloves, hearing and eye protection.)

I got a 445 from them a couple years back and have been very happy with it. Great deal for this one too.

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

The 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 says assembled in the USA.

Hope it helps.

Quote from bgrigg View Post :

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.

Stihl! Think that's who he said he liked better.

This company is horrible. I purchased a refurb leaf blower from them that was supposed to ryobi. Unit came in with sand in the gas tank, fuel lines dangling, and the carb attached by one and only one screw which meant a fireball if it did start. Ryobi had no record of the unit being refurbished by them and the appearance alone told me someone had kicked the crap out of the unit on at least a dozen occasions.

I left negative feedback on ebay and the company tried to buy me to remove it. Read for yourself:
"I am emailing you in reference to your recent order for the RYOBI RY09050 26cc 200MPH Gas Handheld Leaf Blower Vacuumthat you had purchased on eBay. We have noticed that you have left negative feedback regarding that order and would like to follow up with you on this to see if there is anything we can do to make this a positive experience for you.

I do understand the item had arrived in unsatisfactory condition and I am very sorry for the inconvenience this had caused you. Due to the inconvenience, and if you would be willing to revise your negative feedback from negative to positive, I would be happy to either offer a $25.00 payment to your account or $30.00 in store credit to your account, which you would be able to apply towards a future purchase.

Please respond to this email or call us (866-639-9320) and let us know if this would work for you or if there is anything else we can do for you to make your experience with VMInnovations a positive one. Thanks!

What company tries to bribe people into revising feedback that calls them out on such lies? I told them keep their dirty money. Who would actually accept $25 over leaving feedback that can help another person realize this company is shady down to the core.....something tells me many do :/.

Seems harsh. I've purchased from them twice and was pleased both times.

Depending on the diameter of that tree, if: 15" or less Husqy 435, if 16-17" Husqy 445, if 18+ then Husqy 455.

Here is 445 in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGh6w4qLcu0

a 14" saw will cut up that fallen tree no problem.

you only need a larger saw for big diameter trees... like 24" diameter and bigger

There's certainly certain issues with certain models (I wouldn't buy anything in the 200 range - you should beware Poulan). Husqy is better than Echo for sure. I put it on par with Stihl (with different manufacturer winning at various price points). Arboristsite.com is a good place for information on chainsaws.

I bought a new Husqy 435 about a year ago for $270 (It was the right value/size for me). Husqy 450 and 455 are a quality chainsaws, but the 455 is quite a bit heavier.

I think this is a good deal for anyone who isn't cutting all that much wood, but wants something more reliable/professional than Crafstman, Ryobi, Poulan, etc.
