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.

455 Rancher Chainsaw – Farm Tough Review

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

Great Saw For Trail Work
A bit heavier than my previous homeowner's Husqy but still quite manageable and I appreciate the longer bar and the greater power. Makes quick work of even 18" diameter trunks. Starts easily/quickly.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, Price, Fast

This product does not work right out of the box. It throws chains every 10 minutes of operation and take 20 minutes to put back on so it will work for another 10 minutes. Does not work!
Pros: Non of the above
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Expensive

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.
