Where I live, dry ponderosa pine goes for about $125 per cord blocked and delivered. I've cut about a dozen cords of mostly dead-fall ponderosa in the 11-months I've owned the 455. The trees have ranged up to 32" caliper but most are 24" or less and I harvest the entire tree down to 2" branches. My wood stove happily consumes all. If one evaluates the effort required to block, load and unload a tree, it goes something like this: 25% cutting into blocks up to 14" long, 5% handling before cutting, 65% loading the blocks and limbs, 5% unloading. Splitting the large blocks into suitable firewood is akin to Tom's fence, ponderosa splits so easily with a 7 lb splitting maul that I look forward to the sessions.
In the dozen plus hours of actual cutting time I have these observations:
- the 455 is not overpowered, having the 20" bar buried its full length in a log and you wish it had more motor.
- the 455 is light enough such that only when cutting at shoulder height or above is weight an issue.
- the 455's spring mounted motor/bar/chain makes vibration a non-issue.
- In hindsight, I would NOT be willing to pay an extra $300 for a lighter more powerful "pro" saw.
A chainsaw is a high maintenance machine, sharpening the chain frequently pays big dividends, you can tell by the chips, big chips = sharp chain, sawdust = dull chain. Chain adjustment is needed with each load along with flipping the bar occasionally. Be sure to clean the bar oil hole when flipping the bar, I didn't once and I could believe how poorly it cut.Read more ›
There are some pros and cons to this saw as with all things.
Here's what I like. It's easy to operate and maintain. Accessibility of the under-cowel components such as the air filter, spark plug, and clutch housing is a no-brainer. It starts easy. In fact, you really don't need the pressure valve. It "pops" after a few short and fast pulls. Remember, once the saw "pops" with the choke, un-choke it and pull it again. You do not need to warm a two stroke with the choke on like you would a 4 stroke engine. Attempting to warm with the choke is the biggest cause of two stroke engine flooding.
Here's what I do not like. The low/hi mixture settings are limited by EPA regulations; a complete and total joke. If you remove the controls to optimize your settings, the warranty is void. But, I think it's better to do that than cook engine from lean settings. There aren't enough chainsaws running in any given period of the day to justify this regulation. So if you are a casual user, really pay attention to the break in procedures. Since the saws run lean, you need to make sure to break them in with extra care. If you use them much more frequently, remove the EPA limiters and richen out the hi/low mix, otherwise you will cook your engine.
Overall this is a great saw. The chisel chains do well for heavier applications. Be careful of kickback with these style chains. You can get low-kick back chains from any dealer. It's all a matter of personal preference.
I have outfitted my saw with an Oregon 20" Bar, chain, and rim sprocket.Read more ›
