HUSQVARNA 460 Rancher
Excellent Saw Plenty of Power
Excellent Saw with plenty of power. I've only had the saw a few weeks so I really can't give an assertion about the long term durability, but so far I'm impressed. I just wish our congress didn't pass environmental laws that force chainsaw manufacturers to design the chainsaws mixtures to run too thin and wear out faster.

powerfull chain saw
plenty of power and easy to operate.the only draw back is when it is just sitting the bar oil leaks out.

I purchased this saw to clear tornado damage from the Tuscaloosa, Ala. storms.
I ran this saw from 7AM to 7PM for 10 days, rotating it with my other 2 huskys, stopping only to fill and sharpen chains.
Saw was purchased with a 24" bar and hard case.
Great saw for the money.
This saw cut up more wood in 10 days than most saws will see in a lifetime.

It's a good chainsaw, better than my previous chainsaws.

Performed very well ....
through a full day's cutting of fallen trees and wisteria vines downed in a storm. Very easy to start, and cut easily through all sizes of limbs. Just a little heavy for a full days work, but I have worked with heavier. An all around very good saw.

An excellent value
Went to an open house to purchase a Rancher 455 and the salesperson recommended the 460 because of the increased power and reviews he had read.
Saw was offered at the same price, and also bought spare chains and a case to go with it.
Can't wait to hit the woods and cut up my first cords of firewood. Here in Wiscsonsin a warm fire is all you need to make it through the cold winters evenings and think about the summer and being back in the woods again.

Good torque throughout the rpm range
Very impressed with the torque even at low rpms. Previous owned chainsaws did not have good low rpm torque, therefore not allowing to 'push' the saw through larger pieces of wood. The 460 Rancher has this ability, along with the decompressor button and carb purge bulb for easy starting, I almost get excited to go and cut wood!

Great saw, Great price!
I bought this saw to use for annual cleaning of my 10 achre plot in the Pacific Northwest. This saw exceeded my expectations. Starting it was very easy thanks to the compression release. Right from the get go, this saw was able to go through any job I threw at it. From limbing to cutting 24" logs into rounds with little effort and virtually no engine bog. I shopped arround a lot and found this to be the best saw with the most power for the money. It had great reviews, and I was not dissapointed with its performance one bit! I would recommend this to anyone that needs to clear their personal propery, or plot of land with little to no effort.
