HUSQVARNA 460 Rancher
Meets all my needs
I am a home owner with a wood burner and cut and split all of my wood. The Rancher 460 meets all of my needs and makes the job much easier.

After 3weeks of late nights reading reviews, watching youtube videos, talking to people on forums and calling dealers, I decided the 460 rancher was for me. I love this saw. Only had it about a month. I have the 24" bar with full chisel chain and it pulls it no problem thru monster Ash. I really wanted a Pro series saw but couldnt justify the extra $350 for the same size saw. I'm not a commercial tree guy, just cut firewood for myself and some other family. Its a little heavy for limbing, at least with the 24" bar, but this thing rips thru big hardwood no problem. Just let it do the work. People on forums are really pushing pro saws but for what this saw is, its an awesome saw. Its so smooth and just feels so good to cut with compared to any other saw I've ever used.

My Husband bought this for me 2 years ago, and to this day, starts right up, ease in starting, low maintenance, has cut most of the logs I needed to cut. I Love It!! Been cutting and splitting and selling firewood for 2 years now and have NO complaints!!

This saw runs and handles well.

Was sold a DUD
just 3 weeks ago i purchased a 460 rancher. From the first time I started it, it act right! It was an excellent saw when it was running after letting off the throttle it would idle for a few seconds and then cut off. Would start right back up most of the time. Before i could finish my first job not even 6 engine hours on it the engine just stops! Take it too my local husqvarna dealer and they tell me husqvarna prolly is not gonna warranty this. I spent 485.67 cents on this saw and now it is sitting in a shop while husqvarna has a mechanic doing extensive testing to try to get out of fixing or giving me a new saw!!! What the heck is up with this husqvarna?????

A really good chain saw
After viewing the online video on how to operate this chain saw, I had no problem with starting it. I am seventy years old and despite the fact that I had broken my left wrist just four month prior, I had no difficulty with handling my new chain saw. I was amazed by how fast I was able to cut down a six foot high tree. And after trimming the branches off with my Husqvanna 445, the Husqvanna 460 quickly sliced through of the thick parts. I wil soon have enough wood to heat my home for this winter.
P.S. I wish that I never had any Stihl saws.

I needed to upgrade to a bigger saw and the 460 fits all the needs. It does everything. I cut 30-40 full cord of hard wood every year and I love this saw. I looked around for a year at all the brands of saws and came back to Husqvarna. The power of the 460 makes cutting a breeze, it handles any chore I can throw at it. I can use this all day with ease
