HUSQVARNA 460 Rancher
460 Rancher works hard on Farm
I own several acres in the California Central Valley and my Husqvarna 460 Rancher has been a workhorse. It helps me to prune my orchard as well as chop up trees that had to be replaced. I owned a competitors brand before the 460 and it was not getting the job done.

I have a small farm and timber. I heat my house with a outdoor wood burner for the last 4 years so I cut wood all winter long. Now the heat is free and no more heating bills. This saw has all of the features that help me to power thru the largest trees and ease to get the smaller jobs done. Especially since I only have weekends to do the work. It allows me to get the job done so I can do more than just cut wood all weekend long. This saw is so reliable that I am going to buy another smaller saw for limbing and smaller jobs. Great product

I cut about 25 cord of wood a year to heat the house and this saw does a great job whether you are felling or limbing it works great.

After trading in my 286 I wanted a easy starting saw that performed well.I get both with my new 460 rancher.I did have a problem with it over oiling, but the dealer took care of the problem at no cost.

My recently purchased 460 has a 24" bar and performs pretty decently. Has enough rpm to keep the chain from bogging down on big cuts. Starts fairly easily (2nd or 3rd pull) and gas and bar-oil fill holes are easy to access.
One negative is the position of the muffler. It is directly below the grip so when holding tight against a big log while cutting, the heat is unbearable. I'm going to need to buy some welders gloves.

This is my first Husqvarna. I burn wood for winter heat, and own a smaller saw by another manufacturer. It got the job done, but I had trouble keeping it going. I would make a cut, restart the engine, make another cut, restart etc.
I decided I needed something more reliable, and with more power. After a lot of internet research, I decided on the 460 Rancher. I was in luck, as a local store happened to have one in stock. It is easy to start, and runs all day. I have used it to process about 12 ash trees in the last couple of months and am very satisfied. It runs great and has plenty of power. With a 20 inch bar, I can go after large diameter trees. I am very impressed with this saw, and would like to get another husqvarna to use as well. I would recomend this saw to others. I don't think I would buy any other brand of saw, as I feel husqvarna makes the best saw for the money on the market today.
