Husqvarna 445 Review | Chainsaw Reviews

Tired of cutting down those brushes and trees using a good ol’ axe and a hand saw?  Why not invest in a chainsaw that will help you do the job in less time while making the process fun and easy!   Check out the Husqvarna 445 an 18-Inch 45.7CC 2-Stroke Gas Powered Chainsaw.  This saw is made by a company that makes great quality tools, has plenty of power and will do a superb job for majority of users.  It will cut through wood like a hot knife through butter (check out the video below).  Even late Paul Harvey spoke highly of Husqvarna saws and advertised for them.

What’s not to like?  Husqvarna 240′s brother 445 chainsaw is lightweight, gas efficient, has a great bar length and displacement with the quality you can trust.  As one of our customers noted  in his Husqvarna 445 review it is well-balanced,  very easy to start due to a compression release and has abundance of power for big wood.    Just don’t go overboard and try to cut down 30” DBH trees.  If you are planning to cut down unusually large logs (eg. 18 inch + DBH) we would recommend stepping up to its big brother Husqvarna 455 Rancher.  See what our customers have to say about it in their Husqvarna 455 reviews.

If you ever need to buy additional chains for these chainsaws they can be purchased at your local hardware store or directly from Husqvarna.

In terms of complaints, there really is none – especially considering the price.  A few things worth noting is that this saw has one bar nut (tighten it) and it doesn’t have an adjustable oil pump.  Some saws have two bar nuts and come with adjustable oil pumps; they also cost twice as much.

Below is a demonstration of Husqvarna 445 “tearing through 15 inch” big oak by DShinskey:

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for Husqvarna 445 is $309.95 but VMInnovations sells this chainsaw for $246.95.  Please note, it is manufacturer refurbished to its original condition & will operate as new.

We believe it is better to buy a refurbished “quality” saw instead of a brand new inferior saw that won’t accomplish your goals or take twice as long to get the job done.   So we have a deal for you if saving about 30% sounds good to you ;)

VMInnovations is a Husqvarna Preferred dealer and we offer 90 days warranty for all Husqvarna chainsaws. Preferred dealers offer high-quality product selection & top quality service in addition to comprehensive knowledge of Husqvarna products.  Please be careful when operating any tool, especially a chainsaw and have fun shopping at VMInnovations!

Bonus: technical data pulled directly from manufacturers product sheet.

    I’ve had thgis saw since March of 2011 and have cut a tremendous amount of wood since then, on average about a half a cord a day, 4 days a week.

    This saw cuts like a beaver on speed, easy to start, tons of torque and just a pleasure to use hour after hour.

    I’d recommend this saw to anyone lookin’ for a prosumer saw, I have no complaints at all.

    Interested in 445 and 450 husquavarna, 18 inch bar chainsaw. Replacing. A discontinued husquvarva. We burn 4-5 cords a year and have a splitter. I have never bought a manufactured reconditioned chainsaw, but need to be convinced this is the way to go. Thank you, cynthia

      Cynthia, the factory reconditioned chainsaws have been professionally restored to working order by a manufacturer or manufacturer-approved vendor. That means it’s been inspected and repaired to meet manufacturer specifications and is in the original working condition, but it may also have some scuffs or signs of use.
