This saw is definitely a cut above the average consumer-level chainsaw. You will find that because of the narrow-kerf bar-and-chain combination, the saw will make cuts without any signs of laboring. In fact it should easily handle any additional demands of an 18-inch narrow-kerf bar and chain.
A few tips particular to the Husqvarna 440E chainsaw: First, the combined kill switch/choke lever must be pulled out before being flicked upward to the choke position. Though it appears to be rugged enough for normal usage, the plastic lever might not withstand being forced into the choke position without being pulled out first.
Second, this is a fairly high-compression engine. I strongly recommend, for safety, that the saw be held down on the ground by your foot through the handle to keep it under control when starting, rather than “drop starting” it.
