HUSQVARNA 455 Rancher
This time a Husquvarna.
A Professional Logger friend of mine recommended Husqvarna saws whenever I needed to replace my current saw. I had been looking and when the day came I found what I wanted, A 455 Rancher. A dead Oak was losing limbs close to my 5th wheel RV. I cut the tree down only to have daughter ask for 2" slabs to make table decorations for her upcoming wedding. My new Husqvarna's first day was a full one, preformed flawlessly while cleaning up a huge mess and letting Daddy create a lasting memory with His daughter.

OUTSTANDING ALL DAY USE WITH MORE THAN ENOUGH POWER
I have ran STIHL's in the past and had good luck with them but after some comparison I went with the Husky and I could not be happier. First weekend out cut split and stacked 2 cords for our cabin and I couldnt even tell that I had been running the saw all day. The 20 inch bar is a perfect setup for the weekend warrior and plenty of saw for the professional. One of the best purchases I have ever made and will be buying exclusively Husky from here on for all of my outdoor equipment needs.

I purchased the saw to clean up some overgrown property and it has been a great tool to take care of the job. I have owned various saws in the past including Stihl, and the Rancher is a saw for big jobs. It can cut off the big stuff just like I want. It is my first Husqvarna chain saw and I am very happy with the results.

I've owned a comparable STIHL, Farm Boss 20 inch some years ago and cut down about 100 good sized trees in Vermont clearing land for a home site, a decent saw to be sure, but this Husq has it beat. More power, easier to handle and a lot less weight, which makes a difference if you're 60 plus and sawing all day. Started right up on the second pull and the first after that, and cut a 18 inch tree like butter. The reduced weight made it easier to do branch trimming. Plunge cuts etc. No problem.

Great firewood saw
Received this saw for Christmas from my dad. Got to break it in on some 24" California live oak. Cuts great, need to drop down to a 18" bar, as it's got a 24" on it now with a full chisel chain. Easy to start and good on fuel.

Great every day saw
I'v worked for a D.P.W for 30 years and have run a lot of different chainsaws when I retired I thought I would never need my own saw . Than Sandy hit I had trees all over my property , I went online to start looking and came across the 455 Rancher light weight with good power did a great job on the trees. A chainsaw even this old man can use !
