I bought mine on Amazon 2 years ago. Love it when it works. My chain also jumps off and have the same problem with the teeth. Last week it quit. Can't get any spark. Never had a saw with those two problems. But I still like the saw.

I have had this exact problem. I have been using chainsaws in various sizes and brands for 25+ years. I understand maintenance, chain tension, etc. I have probably not got 2 hours run time on the Husky 455 and the chain has derailed twice, both times chewing up the chain guides such that I had to replace. First time it happened, I figured it was bad luck. Within 5 minutes of running the saw today, after replacing chain, it came of again, and, again, ruined the chain. This is extremely aggravating as I was extra careful about tension and proper mounting, and use of saw. I am going back to Stihl brand. I never had this problem with the 041 Farm Boss I had for 20+ years. Yes, the chain would occasionally come off, but it would not get destroyed.
