The Perfect Fit
This is the perfect size saw with great power and balance for a medium size saw. It can also take a slightly larger bar if need be, but I really don't recommend, great saw.
Pros: Fast, Durable, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Packaging, Should always be sold with a good solid case

Did The Job With Eaze
It cut up an 80 ft poderosa pine like butter. With trunk around 36 inches thick. It just now needs the chain sharpened. Well worth the money over the cheaper brands.
Pros: Reliable, Durable, Fast, Easy To Use

Husqvarna Rancher
I've had Husqvarna chainsaws for years now, through hurricanes Katrina and Isaac . The Rancher rides on my tractor whenever I go out to the field. It's expensive but you get what you pay for - the Husqvarnas are for people who use them and my Rancher's has been used regularly for the years I've had it. So far it's needed no maintenance other than normal routine replacement of the parts subject to wear and the air cleaner element. All my Husqs are still fully operational while other brands I've... more
Pros: Durable, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Cuts Through Hedgewood Like Butter
So my old beat up Husqvarna Rancher 55 that I got at an auction broke and for the price of fixing it I figured I might as well buy a new saw. I did a bit of poking around on the Husqvarna website and am glad I did. I was initially leaning towards the Rancher 450, but found out that the 455 is substantially more fuel efficient. So I purchased the 455, reasoning that I would make up the price difference in fuel savings in the first year.

Boy am I glad I did. I have cut a cord of wood on less... more

455 Rancher Is One Mean Saw!
The people that are throwing chains must not know what they're doing. I've cut 10 cords of wood with my 455 rancher swapping between 3 different brand chains and haven't thrown one yet. As far as oil leaking when the saw is not in use, before you store it undo the oil cap to let the pressure out of the tank then tighten back up and it won't leak. I was skeptical about this saw when I purchased it, but it's been nothing but a beast.
Pros: Reliable, Fast, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations

My First Chainsaw
I have nothing to compare this chainsaw to, as this is my first chainsaw. Intuitively this saw is easy to operate. She starts quickly and cuts through hardwood like butter. Seemingly a little heavy to lug around, the extra weight serves well once cutting.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: Expensive

Cuts Great
I am very pleased with this saw, starts easy, cuts great, and not too heavy to handle. Had to do the normal chain tightening several times, but that is normal with a new chain. It has three carb. adjustments that can be adjusted with a small screwdriver and I already know that after break in time is done it will need some minor adjustments. I had a 350 before and had to make adjustments after about three months so that is expected. Love the saw and know that it will be a good one for years to... more
