Husqvarna 460 Rancher Chain Saw - 20in. Bar, 60.3cc, 3/8in. Pitch, Model# 460
Bought new, added a 24 in. bar for more reach and the saw still performs awesomely! Starts first or second pull every time, warm or cold. Could not be more impressed for the money.

the best saw
I bought a Husq. 455 in 2010, but was careless and put it in my unlocked shed. . . it got stolen, imagine that! Sooo I purchased a Husq. 460 this year and good lock for my shed! It just rus so darn strong, I've cut 4 cords so far for next winter without one problem, plans are to cut 4 more! This is an outstanding tool, it's power, makes up for it's weight. I truly believe that when buying a chain saw, bigger is clearly better and equates to less work.

Purchased second Husquvana saw
I decided I wanted a second saw as I occasionally got my smaller saw stuck. I also found my self cutting 26 inch logs with my 40 cc 345 and was getting a sore back. The last time I buzzed through some oak with the
460 it took my breath away. I was was done in less than half the time, my back did not take a punishment and it makes cutting up the big logs fun again. Easy to start and handle. A great investment in a good tool.

Have a 40 acre property and go there every weekend. LOTS of trees and I heat my cabin with wood. The Husky is great for larger trees, a little heavy and small gas tank. Starts relatively quickly and no problems. Have had several Husky's before and would probably stay with this brand. The only serious problems seem to be that the chains get dull very quickly. I could go through a chain twice a month.

Good Farm Use Saw
This is a great saw for farm use if you have land with good sized trees. Ours is fitted with a 24 inch bar/chain and it will rip thru any wood we have thrown at it. It always starts and is the most comfortable saw we have had yet. This coupled with a little 14' Poulin we have does all we ever need.

Husky is husky on power
Good heavy duty saw. Tons of motor, does not
bog down no matter what you're cutting. Hands
do not go numb from vibration after a running a
tank, or two of gas thru it like my Stihl .028.
Only drawback is it's a heavy saw to lug around.
Easy to start with compression relief valve is
another fine feature that made me a believer in

Very good machine
This is a great saw that will chew through wood with ease. I cut some 28" oak logs and the saw handled the job very quickly.
The only beef I have is starting. The manufacturer needs to come up with a more ergonomic position for the decompression button. I find it difficult to hold the saw and depress the button with one hand while starting with the other.
That said, once started, this saw is a great tool.

great Husky for your yard
This is a very nice chainsaw, as I feel all Huskys are. I own a few actually. If you need an all purpose saw, this is a good one to pick. It is easy to start and not to heavy to use for a few hours. The 20" bar also keeps you from having to bend over so far to make the cut. That is especiallly helpful when you are really tall...really saves your back come the end of the day. The vibration is minimal, esp compared to cheaper saws, and it can really handle hardwoods without bogging down. It is a real good investment to buy a saw like this and it will last a long time too.

Husky 460 Chain Saw
I'm an average homeowner/handyman and bought this saw for my Alaskan Mk III Mini-Mill and to do some occasional logging on my property in TN.
This is a very good all around capable saw; some prefer a Stihl.
But this saw wont cost you a fortune and it will handle anything you throw at it. It will do commercial jobs too, but I think the reason some have problems is the fuel and 2-stroke mix dont get mixed correctly--that will end any saw.
I mill poplar, oak and ash with this saw and run it 4 to 6 hours straight without fail. If you mill with any saw, I would highly recommend a ripping chain. Your saw will "cog" its way through anything as long as you keep an eye on your chain oil and use good fuel and quality 2-stroke mix. I have excellent performance with Amsoil, but the dealer recommended I use the Husqvarna XP 2-stroke oil at least through the warranty period. I do notice the saw runs cooler with Amsoil though :-)
The only drawback to this saw is getting parts for it depending on if it was bought from a "big box" store or through a Husky dealer. Just like anything else you'll get what you pay for. Husky dealer engines are a little better.
If you're not a professional logger or groundskeeper--go for the "big box" Husky.
Very Happy Handyman
