Ease of use

Husqvarna’s Smart Start system makes this chainsaw a fairly easy to start. A combined start and stop switch as well as a efficient fuel pump, make the chainsaw easy to start. It also reduces the risk of engine flooding. Cleaning the air filter is easy enough thanks to the simple snap-lock cover, which you can open within seconds. Husqvarna’s patented LowVib system helps you make more accurate cuts and help to reduce fatigue to your hands while operating the chainsaw.

Safety

The Husqvarna 445 has been engineered with safety in mind, it has a very low vibration, which greatly decreases the risk of any injury. On powerful chainsaws like the Husqvarna 445, this is much appreciated by owners using the chainsaw. It’s also safe to use with the chain brake that is activated by pushing the handguard forward (please fully read the operators manual beforehand on safe use of the chainsaw). It has a built-in sensor that automatically shuts off the chain when a sudden shift in upward motion occurs, while using the chainsaw.

The chainsaw is lightweight, powerful, and has a comfortable handle and easy to hold for prolonged periods of time.

Performance

Powered by Husqvarna’s 44.7cc X-Torq engine, which is an engine design found in the newer Husqvarna chainsaws. The Husqvarna 445 has quite fast cutting speeds, especially when cutting thinner wood under 10 inches (25 cm) diameter, making this a very competent chainsaw that will allow you to work efficiently.

The 445 has a 45.7 cc 2-stroke engine capable of generating 2.8 horsepower. The maximum speed of the saw is 9,000 RPM. That’s more than enough for the average small farm and domestic home user.
