HUSQVARNA 460 Rancher
I use it to thin out the sides of our roads. Put a skip tooth chain on it and never looked back. Long as it is sharp chews thru the Ponderosa Pine. 4-5 pulls when cold, one half hearted one when warm. Other than the bar oil leak have 0 complaints about the great saw. Talked to a fellow that repairs saws, told me how to fix the leak so.....Have ran 10 gallons of premix thru, still has the original plug....

Reliable, excellent performance, extraordinary customer service. The chainsaw was taken to a farm in Turrialba, Costa Rica and Vedova & Obando are the local representatives. I am very impressed with the customer support and service.

This saw is a beast
I bought this saw to upgrade from my 25 year old Stihl 026 , and I must say what a difference ! I know I'm not compairing apples to apples , the Husqvarna is a much bigger saw but it is much more user friendly , it cuts silky smooth hardly any vibration if any and very easy to start 2 pulls at the most and it's running ! I tested it out on a couple of big oak blow downs from a storm and it cut through them with little to no effort . The only issue I have is the way the bar oiling system is , the oil tank is non vented and and it builds a little pressure in the tank from heat expansion which causes the oil to seep past the pump and leak a little , which is nothing that would keep me from reccomending this saw

Perfect saw, just needs a bow blade.
This is a great saw, needs a bow blade for cutting fire wood.

Couldn't be happier
Well, maybe I could. The saw is a bit on the heavy side. However, it cuts great. I used it for a few hours today and it started with out issue. It is by far more fuel efficient than my last saw.
For a consumer grade saw this is top notch. No issues to report.

I have both a Stihl MS 660 and the husky 460 Rancher. the Husky starts easier, is easier to handle and uses less fuel. I have worked my husky hard and it never fails to deliver what is needed
