Need To Get Work Done? Get This!
After making first cuts you feel the difference to a consumer saw. I upgraded from a McCulluch to this saw. The Husky cuts like through butter, but you need to respect this saw.

Its not a dangerous saw, but a very much powerful one as the largest consumer saws.

I did purchase this version after comparing different versions from Husky and others. This saw offers best functions with a powerful engine for a reasonable price. A comparable pro saw is many bucks more.

Chain Brake
The unit cuts well and runs well. The chain brake did not release so the chain would not turn. I disabled the brake to use the saw. It is OK but I do not have a chain brake.
Pros: Fast
Cons: Low Quality

W@rked Great And Then,
The chainsaw worked great for the first 2 uses and then it would not start. We took it to a dealer and they repaired it, the gas line was put in backwards.

The dealer took care of the problem and everything is great and the saw works like a charm, no cost to us., very happy, sometimes things get messed up in the process and it was taken care of and we are happy and using that saw like crazy.

Beast!
We have a few acres of wooded land and heat our cabin primarily with the wood we fell on the property. I did tons of research and was teetering between the Husqvarna 460 and the Stihl Farm Boss.

This saw does everything I ever wanted, starts easy even in cold weather, and chews through wood like a beaver on crack. I am happy with my purchase and would recommend this saw to anyone in the market for a high quality prosumer saw.

Our Workhorse
It was time to consider a new chain saw for our summer house. Its surrounded by tress and we also have larger trees to take take care of. We also make fire wood.

We have a 38 cc McCulloch saw at home for the lighter cases, but need something for the heavy cases. So the budget is by $500. Next, since we use the saw in Sweden and need a brand giving us support there.

We also considered a Prio saw which is available for this money, but since we have a 16 inch saw, we need something bigger.... more

Very Satisfied.
I received this saw on time as advertised. Broke it in around my property just cutting rounds. Oak. Right there I was happy with its performance. Then I put the saw to work with some 100 feet pines dead shortly from the Beatle.

It was like cutting butter. So glad I purchased the 24" bar. Next project is to use it and alaskan saw mill to to them into lumber Which I'm sure will have no problem with the right chains. A lot of saw for the spondolics.

Willard,
Willard,

The rebate would have been for $15 on the saw you purchased. We are sorry you did not receive this. This rebate needed to be sent in by you. If you did this, we could look into this for you with Husqvarna. This has been over for a couple of months, but if you would like, we would be happy to look into this further for you. Please feel free to give us a call at 800-710-7499.

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

Always Wanted A Husqvarna
I first used a Husqvarna chainsaw in high school in my forestry class. I also used Stihl chain saws and hands down preferred the Husqvarna every time. I hope this saw lasts for a long time to come as I will be using it a lot. I did a lot of research between Stihl and Husqvarna, and there is honestly no concrete evidence one is better than the other, but I know that it comes down to personal preference, and if you are looking for a Husqvarna chain saw, I don't think you'll find a better deal... more
Pros: Price, Fast, I'd Buy It Again, Its Just What I Was Hoping For
Cons: I Live At 6200 Ft Elevation The Saw Is Tuned At Sea Level

Handfull Of Power - Be Ready To Work!
Bought one of the "460 Ranchers" with the 24" bar, 3/8" chain about 18 months ago. When you remember to pump the gas bulb, it starts first pull every time! Remember to use the compression release - it will save you time!..

Last Aug we had a forest fire burn us over - 20 acres of fir/spruce trees + house/shop/ham shack.
Had to replace the ham shack and move the rebuilt towers. Had to clear some "standing burned" in a hurry.

This saw earned it keep...handled... more
