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.

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

Good Saw But Has Problems
I bought the 455 in Jan 2016. I cut quite a lot of wood with it. The problem is if it is stored with bar oil in it, it will all leak out. Makes quite a mess. Checking the forum, I found this is common. Had I known about this problem, I would not have bought the saw

Excellent Saw!
Bought this saw as a direct replacement for another saw. Saw works like a dream and even better starts like one. I highly recommend this saw.

Back In The Game
I needed a chain saw to clean up my property. I promised my neighbor the apple wood if they cut it up. When their Stile quit working properly my Rancher arrived and they were quite impressed with the time it took to have the remaining trees cut up and ready for pick-up. They said I was showing off but I knew it was the Rancher that was showing off.

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

My Huge Tree
On our farm we had a very big mulberry tree we needed to cut down and into firewood. We had several smaller chain saws but I knew I needed a lot more of a saw.

I ordered and got the 455 Rancher with a 20 inch bar because I needed to longer bar just to be able to cut it down. I was really amazed at the ease of falling the tree and it really suprised me at the speed it cut and finished up the entire project in one afternoon.

I am telling all of my friends and relatives about... more
