I had heard a lot of good things about Huskvarna's reputation, and now I can see why. This product is spectacular!

My biggest gripe about most consumer chainsaws is that they are often difficult to start, either initially or when they are warm, so that by the time it starts, your arms are already sore from pulling the cord over and over again and you're exhausted.

This saw comes with a laminated instruction card. Attach it to the case handle and always refer to it to refresh your memory. If you follow the startup instructions, it starts on the second or third pull, every time. And when warm, up to 30 mins of being off, you can usually just leave the choke off and it will start on the first or second pull. So sweet! Why they don't all do this, I don't know.

Reliable startup is the main reason I bought this saw, after being frustrated with my previous Stihl and Craftsman saws that would often refuse to start or constantly needed to be taken apart.

And in case you forgot to stabilize the fuel and left gas in it for several months, the 345 doesn't mind. It still starts up right away. Wow.

The saw also cuts awesome. It's built to reduce vibration, and it cuts hard woods like a breeze.

Maintenance is very easy. Remove the chain guard and clean the guard in the kitchen sink. Then use a little air spray can to clear off the gunk around the chain drive. Clean the saw after each use and I'm sure it will last for years.

I don't know what these other reviewers problem is with the chain brake. I haven't needed to remove the chain brake cover nor fuss with the spring. And I've never had the chain jump off, and that's even when it got pinched.

I bought this saw for hurricane Ike cleanup and it runs well. Starts easily and handles nicely. However, like another reviewer, the chain jumped the bar.When I took it apart the brake was locked and I could not budge it. I took it further apart, and to loosen the brake, I had to take out the spring. This proved impossible to replace and in the process, it shot across my garage to be lost forever. Parts are not available; I guess since this is a new model. Getting "authorized" chainsaw work done in Houston right now? Yeah, right. Get in line with everyone else doing storm cleanup.

I was very excited to buy this saw but quickly became aware that I had put too much faith in my prior expereince with Husqvarna saws and their general reputation. This new "tool less" acess to the bar and chain makes for a loose bar because there is only one bar nut (the plastic thing with a spring loaded handle). There is another bar bolt but it is just hidden under the cover.
The other problem with this saw is that, unlike my 3120 Husqvana, the brake handle is part of the saw body and not the chain cover and the brake assembly(with the springs and gears) is pat of the cover. Therefore, it is easy to accidentally open the cover with the brake on, thereby bringing the saw to an unworkable state. I have owned this saw for less than a week and will have taken it in for repairs TWICE.
Furthermore, I have discovered that the reason that I was being led to open the chain cover (my chain was falling off/getting REALLY loose) was due to the fact that the chain wasn't being oiled at ALL.

Overall, I was hoping for a high quality limbing saw but have found that I got a high priced low quality out-of-commission saw.

I bought a house with 5 acres of land - most of it being wooded. In my haste to get some tools to maintain the grounds I bought this saw from Lowe's without doing any research on it...I really wish I had because this saw has been nothing but problems.

My primary use for it was to cut and section trees that were 12" or less in diameter. The grounds were let go for some years before I bought the place and I had a bunch of small maple and cherry trees in places where I didn't want them. Occasionally I took on a medium sized tree (14" - 18") which I know this saw is not really rated for... it showed because it was extremely difficult to get through those trees! That's why I gave it two stars and not one - I'm trying not to let it's poor performance on the medium sized trees affect my review.

Anyway, here are a list of the problems I encountered:

1.) After a few trees the saw wouldn't cut straight. The cut kept on curving to one side. I assumed that the bar or chain had worn down unevenly, so I bought a new bar, new chain and sharpening system. After putting on the new components the saw ran much better for about two or three small trees and then the curved cut problem started all over again. The chain is razor sharp, well oiled, at proper tension, and the bar is relatively new. I've spent hours reading forums and trying to trobleshoot this...but the problem persists. It's at the point now where the saw can't handle much more than 6" in diameter.

2.) Within the first month of solid use, the chain stopped getting a good bite on the wood. It would spin like crazy until the bar would start smoking (literally). Of course I thought that I did something wrong, but the pattern repeated even after I changed the bar and chain as I mentioned above.
