Chain Saws Direct Recommended

The Rancher series from Husqvarna is aptly named. They are tough, well built saws meant for the demands of a ranch, tree farm, or estate.

The X-Torq engine puts out a lot of cutting power over a wide rpm range, so it will dig in and get the job done on trees, logs, fenceposts- you name it.

Normally a beefy engine would take a beefy arm to start it; but the Smart Start system reduces the compression in the carburetor so turning the motor over won't be the worst part of the day.

It will... more

455 Rancher Chainsaw – Farm Tough Review
Sometimes you just need a general all around use chainsaw. Husqvarna created the 455 18″ saw for this category. It has plenty of power for almost any task you throw at it and starts easily every time.

Whenever we ask industry forestry pros about the equipment they use, it’s always Husqvarna and Stihl. I once brought an Echo chainsaw to a pro for an opinion and he laughed me away. I had major problems with that Echo, but it is a classic case of you get what you pay for. I am a... more

Buyer Beware
The saw was delivered to my home. I took it out of the box and added fuel and oil. After 3 pulls the saw started and idled, yet when the accelerater was pushed "nothing" happened. Had to take the saw to an "authorized" repair center. There is a two and a half week backlog and wait for the saw to be repaired. Still waiting... Husqavarna got my $ and I got the shaft. Should have bought the Stihl.

David,
Husqvarna should be inspecting your saw and repairing your saw as covered under warranty. This is a link to Husqvarna's dealer locator. There may be a local dealer that can get you in for repair sooner.

Geat Chainsaw
We bought this saw for my father-in-law who owns 140 acres in upstate New York. He was struggling with an old saw he had and we surprised him with this saw which he absolutely loves. HE CUTS WOOD LIKE BUTTER and he even saves time time b/c it's not breaking down. It's not too heavy and we feel great knowing he is not struggling anymore. Wonderful saw!!

First Husqvarna
I've had a Stihl saw all my life and never had an issue. I made the decision to go to Husky mainly for cost consideration. Understanding I've only run the saw two weeks now, I will honestly say they make a good saw.

My 455 leaks a little bar oil when in the back of the Ranger but not that much and no big deal. I am a stihl fan but I have no complaints with the 455. Runs great, has plenty of power(I have a 18" bar).

Time will tell. I have a Stihl that's over 30 years old and still... more

Great Investment
I owned a smaller Husqvarna before this. I wanted a similar machine. The people at the big store were not at all helpful. I purchased this saw on a whim. I am very pleased abut my purchase.

A little heavy at first, but well worth the price and extra weight. I own 2 acres of land and all that go with it.

16.5 Foot Around With An 18 In Bar
I cut a huge wedge then went inside that wedge and cut another then cut clear around the tree deep as the 18 in bar would go- still standing.

Now uneasy i go back to my wedge and slowly take more out.tree pops starts to come down.it pinched my bar. I made 3 attempts to free it as the tree came down, it was time to bail.

I moved out the way and my saw got crushed. These are great saws. I'm going to get me another one. Plenty of power with high rpm. Light weight, you cant beat them.

Husky Vs. Stihl
My father has owned, used(punished), and loved his Stihl chainsaw for 22yrs.. I fall short at remembering the model #, but he has ran it with an 18" bar to do all things required on our farm. At times in my life I was convinced that my father would rather run a saw then breath. Anyway, I decided to upgrade my saw status and started shopping around. In October 2011 dad and I spent some time in the Santa Cruz Mtns. in California cutting trees- I ran a 455 Husqvarna. Dad ran a 220 Stihl. The... more

Quality And Craftmanship
I have been around a few saws of all types and classes. I have owned a 16 inch, 340 Husqvarna since '06 & have loved that saw for cutting firewood and limbing trees. I have cut about 120 cords of wood with it.

I decided it needed a partner, so in my own research decided on the 455 rancher 20 inch. I have cut 4 cords with it. I really like the power- it runs the 20 inch bar very well.

It has good balance and power; the weight is not bad at all for me. The oiler for the bar and chain... more
