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.

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

Huge Mistake - Not Farm Tough
I bought the Husky 460 Rancher because it was rated to be "FARM TOUGH". Simply not true.

I drive 120 miles to get to my 80 acre farm with 57 acres of woods needing lots of trees to be removed. On three separate weekends, I took my chain saw to the farm, used it for a short period and ended up finishing the job with either my 45 year old hand bow saw, my branch trimmer or my Homelite $99 chain saw which has cut for 20 years. Hardly an endorsement for Husqvarna.

"I relied on the recommendations for the selection of this chain saw, selecting the type and size of chain saw based on recommendations of experts. The Saw did not live up to expectations. I have purchased over $30,000 worth of Farm equipment this past year and this Saw was the WORST and most frustrating purchase by far."

Not Farm Tough !!!!!
I bought the Husky 460 Rancher Chainsaw in order to clear the dead trees and many of the fallen logs on my 80 acre Farm in Southeast Ohio. The first one was returned under Warranty since it ate 2 chains which were unable to be used once they came off the track. I finally had time this past weekend (November 10, 2013) to clear some fallen trees and cut some fallen logs on the 56 Acres of Woods on the Farm.
First, the chain saw didn't start when I used some of the Oil/Gas Mix I had made... more

New Husky 460 Rancher
I had a 55 Rancher 18'' that was a good saw. I fried it after 13 years of use. This saw is more powerful, easier to start and is just awesome. I do have oil leaking from the bar oiler all the time, so it will need to be looked at for that. I have opened the cap to release the pressure but it still keeps coming out. I thought it was a little expensive but I will save lots of time getting through cuts faster with this saw!
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Durability, Expensive

Good Quality Chainsaw
I had my Stihl MS310 chain saw that I owned for the past 12 years stolen out of my garage, ugh. It had been a super good reliable saw. So, when I started looking for a replacement I decided to look around. I found this one to be the best value. Plus, when I ordered it I didn't pay shipping or sales tax. I decided to try it out and it ran very well. I have yet to use it on a fire wood excursion.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Reliable, Light Weight, Price

Needed Bigger Saw
I just purchased this saw and have already cut 3 cord of firewood. I generally cut between 4-8 cords per year. Its still early yet but so far, I'm pleased. This saw is an upgrade to my 13 year old Husqvarna 350 which is still a good saw but needed something bigger for the size logs I'm cutting. The Rancher 460 has handled 24" logs no problem. Plenty of power. Happy customer so far.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Fast

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.

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

Awesome And Powerful Saw!!!
Used it for the first time yesterday, already own the 455 18 inch (fantastic). This 460 Rancher is the 24 inch version- LOVE the 60cc powerful engine- the 24 inch pixel saw chain cuts through my Texas hardwood trees like butter without a grunt, spark or over-heating! LOVE Husqvarna! Easy to start, easy to adjust tension, etc.

Simply awesome so far!!!
