JONSERED CS 2255 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great power. I bought this saw 2 days ago, to replace a Husqvarna 445 that started to fall apart while cutting up a large tree. I got the 20'' model 2255. This saw has great power, and it starts easier than the 445 did. The saw is balanced really well. I recommend this saw to anyone, weather they are getting a replacement saw or their first saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saw! I bought this saw to replace a Farmboss that was always fighting me and never wanted to start. The 2255 has been great, I bought the 20" bar model and it fired right up out of the box and one or two pulls ever since. This weekend I dropped 7 trees clearing a new piece of property. This saw made all that cutting easy. The Farmboss is going up for sale at the next garage sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good saw at a reasonable price. I bought this saw to replace my aging Husqvarna 55. The 2255 is nearly the same saw and appears to share many of the same parts. The saw has plenty of power to fell and cut up large trees and starts much easier than my old 55 ever did. The only minor irritation I have with the 2255 is that the kill switch is easily bumped into the off position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Nice Looking Well Crafted Saw" Got this saw after owning the (equivalent?) model saw in a Stihl farm boss. In my opinion this saw is more professionally built and hands down easier to start. It also smokes my old stihl when it comes down to cutting no contest. its good on gas and the low emissions is nice for our environment too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Choice for a saw Saw works great. Met all my expectations. I also own Jonsered blower and weed eater so I felt confident the saw would perform well.
