Husqvarna 445 18-Inch 45.7 cc Gas Powered 2 Stroke Chain Saw
This is a gas powered 2 Stroke Chain Saw that has the versatility of the electric saws. When I saw this chainsaw for sale I went and search on google about the best gas chainsaw review and discovered that it was included in the top picks.
Then I realized that when I climbed a ladder with this saw I would not have the weight of the extension cord adding to the weight of my chainsaw. The weight of the extension cord pulling back towards the ground can make your saw much harder to hold onto.
This gas powered piece of equipment would be light and would eliminate that dragging weight for me. I think I was sold on the tool before I ever even received the item in the mail.

Things I Love about this 2 Stroke Chain Saw
It might be easier for me to list the things that I do not like about this saw. Then I could simply say nothing and move forward. This saw is packed with awesome features that make your work easier to do, and that means you have more time to do things you find fun and relaxing. The following features really stood out to me as being useful for my needs.
This saw is as light as the electric chainsaw designed for tree trimming. This Husqvarna chainsaw weighs less than eleven pounds. You can easily climb up a ladder and use this saw to trim limbs around your property. You will not have to drag around an extension cord like you do when you are using an electric chainsaw.
I love my electric chainsaw, but there are places on my property where the electric saw is simply not an option. It would take several extension cords to reach those parts of the property, and when you start connecting extension cords together you start reducing the amount of power your saw has. This gas chainsaw does not lose power when I get more than one hundred foot from my house.
Quick Release Air Filter
The quick release air filter on this saw allows me to clean my air filter, or change out my air filter in a matter of three minutes or less. The air filter catches the dirt and debris that would otherwise infiltrate my saw engine and possibly ruin my saw. This quick release feature makes the maintenance of my saw easier to do. I love this.
Chain Tensioner on Side of Saw
The tensioner for the chain is located on the side of the saw. You can hold the saw with one hand and tighten the chain with the other hand. Your chains must be tightened to the perfect tension. If your chain is too tight it can reduce the amount of power your engine has. If you chain is loose then it will clatter and it will catch on things.

The owner’s manual that will arrive with your saw will have specific starting instructions for you to use when your saw is being cold cranked, and different instructions, for when you are starting a saw that has a warm engine.
You MUST read these instructions and follow them to the letter. If you do not follow the instructions completely then you will have a hard time starting your engine. Safety is an important issue. You should always wear protective eyewear, long sleeves, long pants, gloves, and shoes that cover your feet completely.
You should also consider wearing ear plugs when you are operating the saw because you can do some damage to your ears. This is an excellent saw for anyone who has any kind of wood cutting to do around your house. The novice saw operator will have no trouble operating this equipment and the expert will be happy to have it in their tool closet.
