Remington 41AY80AG983 chainsaw reviewThe Remington 41AY80AG983′s powerful two-cycle 51cc 2-cycle engine and 18-inch bar chain provide excellent power and cutting performance. While the thoughtful quick start system and anti-vibration handles make starting and handling the Remington a breeze.

The Remington’s large motor and bar chain make it ideally suited for someone looking to cut large amounts of wood or someone who wants to finish a job faster. Some users reported cutting through wood up to ten times faster than their previous chainsaws. Now, that is some cutting power!

Don’t let the The Remington 41AY80AG983′s low, budget friendly price tag fool you, this chainsaw has some serious power and is a steal at about $200.

The Husqvarna 450 is a powerful saw that is perfect for the home/land owner who doesn’t have a need to cut on a regular basis but still appreciates a high quality saw that can tackle the medium-duty jobs around the home.

The 450 is equipped with an X-Torq engine that helps reduce emission levels and fuel consumption making it a powerful yet efficient saw that is also safer to the environment than many other gas-powered chainsaws. This model is built to preserve engine life as well with the centrifugal air cleaning system that removes debris prior to it even reaching the filter.

Starting is simple with the 450 Smart Start engine and starter that allows for quick, effortless starts and reduced cord resistance. The optimized fuel pump further facilitates startup by keeping the fuel lines clean and clear.

Safety and comfort is not lost on this model either with an inertia activated chain brake reducing the risk of kickback and the lightweight frame offering minimal body strain. The 450 is also equipped with LowVibe anti-vibration technology that reduces the vibration of the saw, blade, and handle minimizing the risk of fatigue during extended use.
