Husqvarna 450 Rancher
Refurbished warranty not honored -
I purchased a refurbished unit and had problems with the oiler - I was told by customer service on the phone on 3 different occasions that Husqvarna provided a 90 warranty on all refurbished chainsaws (once prior to buying the saw) - but my service tech was being told it was only 30 days.
Apparently a change was made recently - but Customer Service was not updated... so now I'm stuck with a problem saw - and Husky won't honor the 90 days as they said they would (and verified with a supervisor)... unbelievable!

It does not have the power that my old Stihl had and it has poor oiling to the bar .

This is by far the best saw I have ever owned!!! Super cutting g speed and power to spare! Whoever designed the anti vibe needs a raise !! This saw exceeds my expectations, as I owned a Stihl before. Great saw if you need the arm exercise from trying to start it!!!!! The 450 straight out of the box fired first pull!! Great job to the men and women of Husqvarna for yet another great product! Everything in my garage says Husqvarna on the side! This is one of the meanest saws I have ever owned.. ripped through 8 big oak trees like butter... the smallest was 28" around! On 1 tank of fuel!!!!!

Very good saw
I bought this saw to replace my McCulloch 1010 that I used for 30 years after it was stolen. So far it's been excellent. When I first used it the high adjustment was not quite right so it didn't have the power it should have, but it still cut through cotton wood (property cleanup) easier than I expected, I was surprised with how fast it cut. Tuned right it's a very fast cutting saw, and a lot lighter than my old saw. Even though my old saw never gave a single issue this Husky is definitely a better saw so far.

Great Firewood Saw!
Bought a 450 Rancher and 545 Autotune within a week of one another. The 450 for my Son and the 545 for myself. This was to replace an older Husq. 350 and Stihl 31av. Both are Excellent. The Rancher cuts just as fast as the 545. The antivibe set up is great and starting is easy right out of the box. The first weekend of cutting wood, five tanks of fuel through each, and thus far we are very impressed.

I feel like a LumberJack, not a Rancher.
By far the, I don't exaggerate, the BEST Chain Saw I ever touched. I have had Sears, STIHL brand chain saws, all fall short of any mark. Husqvana 450 Rancher made small work any wood i put in front of it, from limbs to 8" Maple branches. A superior product indeed!!! Never going back.

Great saw for the money
I recently purchased this saw with a 20 inch bar to cut up a ton of felled trees on a house site for firewood. so far ive ran about 4 gallons of gas through it. The saw cold starts in 2 pulls and runs great. ive limbed and cut a mix of hard and soft woods, and with a sharp chain, the saw burns right through anything you put in front of it. i even cut massive double stump approx 20" by 36" and it didnt miss a beat. of course a bigger saw may have cut through it a little faster but for the price and the work you can do with it. I think youd have a hard time beating this one.
