Q: What is the difference between California" saws and 49 staters? I'm looking at a husky at 28" bar, but is not available in california
by Ralph Kosmides from California on July 02, 2016

A: Honestly, not a whole lot when it comes to the saws. The 49 state saws are not going to meet emissions compliance, but most Husqvarna saws do already meet this and it is typically a minor adjustment or addition in the exhaust or carb, but again it really should not be a big deal in terms of performance.

Service And Speed
I've had the saw a few weeks and been in the woods 6 times with it. The saw fired up on the 5th pull the very first time I started it, and hasn't needed 2 pulls since. Very reliable and cuts 15" rounds as easily as 6" ones. It feels like the weight of the saw just drops it thru the wood.

"Late on a Thursday evening I decided to finally order a 460 Rancher. The website was easy to navigate and I was confident that I had hit all the right buttons, and I elected to have it shipped to my work. I received a confirmation in a few minutes that the order was in the system. Friday I checked back and saw a tracking number and shipping schedule for a Monday delivery. Monday morning the saw was delivered by FedEx. I already knew the product was great, I had just not dealt with Chain Saws Direct before. I was very good experience and have recommended them to 2 of my friends that are looking to buy new saws."

Saw Chain
The chain did not last long before I had to get it sharpened. This saw is not for large jobs. Even though it is called a rancher it should be used for smaller jobs.,

Husqvarna 460 Rancher (24") 60.3cc Chain Saw
My big Pine tree was totally saturated when the wind took it down along with power lines, one pole and my fence. My little saw with a 20" bar was burning it self up and had to keep sharpening it (3x total).

I bought the Husky and it cut that sucker like butter. Was expensive but I have a very large Willow to take down and I heat/cook w/wood in the winter.

Husqvarna 460 Rancher (24") 60.3cc Chain Saw
shortly after buying this saw I went to my brothers house and help him cut down 7 trees. We cut trees for 2 days and ended up with over 3 cords of wood with no issues.

The saw worked flawlessly the entire time, it went thru every tree with no effort at all, and whatever cutting angle I used the saw just worked never stale never hesitated.

This is by far the best chainsaw I have ever used, I found it to be light and basically vibration free and caused no hand or arm fatigue. this saw... more

Starts right up and goes through 36' trees like butter. Nice being able to get a straight cut through bigger logs no bar bending. I had this saw running for hours in the woods without a problem it made my day.

"I had one years ago a model 55 , did a lot of cutting for firewood - it ran flawless..no issues. I work in the lumber mill for 27 years and my company uses Stihl chainsaws and they always having trouble shoot with them is why I still chooses the Husqvarna for my personal use!"

Power When It's Needed
Felling 8 red pines up to 20" diameter, 1 oak at around 16 " diameter and 1 silver maple at around 16" diameter. this chain saw handled it all!

Nice smooth cutting and relatively easy starts. Exactly what I needed for the job at hand. With 20 more trees to go, I feel this machine will hold up to many years of service .
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Price, Durable, Easy To Use

460 Dry Oak
Nothing but god to say. I am a Ranch owner in Hamilton Texas. I have many large dead Live Oaks. They have been dead for years and standing because they dull a blade before you get started. Late in the evening you can see sparks. The 460 Rancher was a different story. Two things going for it. First thing is the blade and Chain are big and wide enough to withstand the duty. Second thing is it has enough power to use low lugging RPM. This keeps the blade and chain cooler thus it stays sharp.... more
