Chain Saws Direct Recommended

As we said in our Better recommendation, the Rancher series is very popular for it's power, reliability, and durability.

Our Best pick is very similar to our Better pick; but brawnier. The bigger engine and longer bar are awesome; and will cut fast and strong, all day long.

All those features and all that power are not for the faint of heart or arm. This unit is 14 pounds of serious chain saw- well balanced and with vibration control, but a handful none the less.

The 460 Rancher will... more

Solid Work Horse
This is a great chainsaw. It works well with the larger bar, but with the 20" bar with all that power behind it it's a real hot rod of a saw. It might seem a little heavy, but wait till you feel it fall through a big log. Starts every time too. only 4 stars for "features" because it doesn't come with a case.

Seems Like A Good Saw.
Been heating my house for 38 years with wood. I cut a lot in my time. Had all kinds of saws from home lite to mcCollouch to Polan and only got 2-3 years out of then. Had a Stihl 028 super woods boss for 15 years and it cost mr over 1200 dollars in repairs. Then I went to a Dolmar 510 a good saw only put a bar and 2 chains on it but it cut like a rough workout.

Then last year September of 2015 went and bought a new husky rancher 460 and it seems to be a good saw. Cuts comfortable,very... more

Works Great, But.......
The saw arrived with a defect. The fuel line from the tank to the carburetor was not attached. So, when I tried to start it, I got a foot full of gas and the saw didn't run.

Now the fun begins. I wanted to return it to Chainsaw Direct, but they wouldn't take it back because I put fuel in it. Nice catch 22 situation. My advice, but it from a brick and mortar dealer in your area and pay the sales tax. Consider it insurance.

Anyway, I now had a dead chainsaw that I couldn't use. I contacted... more
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Low Quality, Bad Instructions, Poor Brake Design

Good Purchase
Well satisfied with the 460 /20. Arrived on time as promised. Allowed me to retire a Stihl (boat anchor-that seldom would run and always in the shop).. and an Echo 440/20 which was a hard worker but not up to bigger tasks. I would recommend this for medium to hard jobs. I haven't used it long enough to know about warranty in case it ever fails.

Great Tool At A Great Price
I needed to replace a Stihl chainsaw with comparable specifications to the Husqvarna saw that I selected. So far I've logged a bit over 20 hours of use with the Husqvarna saw and I'm extremely pleased with the saws performance. I estimate that I saved a bit under $100 by purchasing via Chainsaws Direct. I got exactly the tool I needed at a great price and delivery was right on schedule.

Incorrect Cover Assemble Delivered With Rancher Chainsaw
Upon delivery, I had an incredible problem trying to remove the clutch cover. When I finally did, and after removing the packing pacer – I attempted to reinstall the cover. But, it would not go on! Thinking, what am I doing wrong all day – going on you-tube to find out why I was messing up this simple task. And eventually came to the conclusion that the BRAKE BAND was the incorrect size. Since it was only a theory from a so-so mechanical guy – I pondered and pondered. So I eventually made my... more

I am not one for believing in reviews because you don't know who is writing them.
I am a real person who bought the 460 and believe me when I tell you its a great saw.
I had a 40 inch log I had to get through.
I decided to see what the saw had. (mind you it has a 20 inch blade). Let me just say wow.
It went through no problem. I didn't force the saw.
I didn't have to, it just tore right into it. down one side then the next over and over again with ease.
I am extremely happy with my... more

Alpine Oak
After trying many Home Cheapo saws I decided to bite the bullet and spend the bucks for a good saw. This was best decision I've ever made. I got the Husqvarna 460, pleanty of spare power even cutting dry Oak, easy to start, noice level not bad for a large cc motor. Overall a great saw, I love it.

Proud Owner Of Best Chain Saw On Market
I have owned several chain saws over the last several years and have always had to pull the starter cord several times to get the last ones I purchased (Stihl 390 and 250) both have been a pain to start. I had the starter cord replaced the first week on the 390 and it broke every time I took it out to use it.

That is when I decided enough is enough and ordered the Husqvarna 460 and it started on the second pull after using the primer bulb; and it has started every time I picked it up to... more
