Gas Powered Chain Saws

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.

Best Chain Saw Ever
Filled with premix fuel as recommended filled bar oil, she fired up ran great and performed better than I was expecting. I have owned other brands, but this is the Cadillac of chain saws. Love it ......

It Starts!
I have had several chainsaws over the years none which cost over $160.00. With all of them I never got tired of using them, I always got tired of trying to start them. 20 to 30 pulls was not uncommon. I finally got a good quality chainsaw. It starts within 4 pulls and now if I get tired, its because this chainsaw doesn't quit. Another thing with those big box chainsaws is trying to start it again after using it. I knew if I ever shut it off I would never be able to start it again. Cutting... more

Love This Saw, Cuts Like Much Bigger Saws But Hadles Like A Smal
Started on the second pull out of the box. I cut over 10 cords of wood with it. Went through two chains due to the logs coated with sand from being skidded out of the woods. But otherwise its my new favorite saw between my 50CC Echo and 32CC Johnserud.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Price, High Quality, Reliable
Cons: bar/chain availability in my area

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

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.

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.
