HUSQVARNA 460 Rancher
WILL NOT OIL ! !
I bought this saw on it's reputation. Kill switch broke right away. Took back and fixed under warranty. Broke again in a week. Now, I choke to stop. Absolutely WILL NOT OIL ! ! I have replaced the plastic oil pump drive gear at least a couple of times. Last time I ordered two gears. figured I'd need them. I did. I carry a squeeze bottle to oil the chain. Dealer went out of business, so no warranty. Chain gets hot and then won't spin and won't cut. Out comes the squeeze bottle. Fill the gas, check the oil, . .still full from last time. Seems like a good saw, but hasn't been good for me. I'd like to sell it and get one that works. Like the chain tightener screw. That's cool. Why don't others do that ? Like the compression release too.

I bought the 460 Rancher for firewood cutting and clearing of trees on my property in North Idaho. It has lived up to all my expectations. It was also priced lower than a comparable saw from the competition. Keep up the good work Husqvarna.

great ranch saw
I bought this saw 3 months ago I've used it just about everyday since then, with a 24'' bar it's got power to spare, I have always used Stihl so this is a little slower then I am used to, but it has a LOT of torque, it's had problems idling no matter how much I tweaked it lately it's doing ok when first received it would die after 5 minutes regardless how high the idling was set, but I'm guessing that was just a new engine, other than that a suburb saw.

Excellent Saw for around the Farm
Been a Stihl Guy in the past. Decided to just try something different. Excellent choice in the 460 Rancher. Starts consistently on the 2nd pull and to date have had NO issues what so ever with it. I am more than pleased with my choice.
Local Dealer is great as well!!

Bought this for cutting firewood. Great power for it not being a professional saw. Big enough to cut trees over 30 inches. Most of which was tamarack and red fir.

no customer support
Bought a 372XP that must be so bad Husqvarna won't even let one do a review of that. It's brand new, will not start and the 4 year warranty means nothing because no one locally will do warranty repairs. A lousy deal. The only "customer support" is writing a lousy review.

Cheap Chain Brake Handle Rancher 460
Beware the cheap easy destroyed chain brake handle; Throw a chain and you will be replacing the chain and the handle, neither of which is covered by warranty. Other than that little detail so far so good; easiest starting chainsaw I have ever ran, whipped through a 20 inch oak branch like it was pine....
