Husqvarna 460 Rancher Gas Powered Chainsaw Review
If you love working on trees, then you will love this product. You don’t have to be an expert to use it. It is exactly what a tree cutter will be looking for. Does a super job, cuts through everything and maintains a consistent speed. If you plan to use it for normal cuttings, it will serve you for a very long time. Reason being, it doesn’t matter how long one works with it, as long as it is on the jobs that it is designed to perform, its bar and chain remains undamaged.
It is gas powered, and its chain tensioner is mounted on the side for easy access. This makes its operation easy and quicker. It also has a quick release air filter that facilitates a quick cleaning and replacement of air filter. The forged 3-piece crankshaft enhances its durability. This enables you to use the machine even on the toughest applications.
Robust All-Around Chainsaw
With a longer guide bar, 12”, Husqvarna 460 Rancher qualifies as a robust, comprehensive chainsaw. It has enough power to handle your demanding cutting jobs that require more power than that found in other machines.
It is equipped with an X-Torq engine that gives it high torque for more efficient operations. With an ergonomically designed body, the saw’s power is easy to handle. It is complimented by a Smart Start, Low Vib, Air Injection, and combined stop/choke control to give you a perfect performance.
Gas Powered (ideal for places without electricity)
If the place you are in has no electricity or where you are going to work with you will have no access to power, the 460 Rancher is the tool you require. With manageable vibration, this machine gives precise cuts, and its design enables one to operate quickly and efficiently. Remember to reverse the bar after every use to ease getting the bar on and off.
The machine does not spill oil as it has a perfect design that holds the oil in its place so you will have no problem with oil (has an oil regulator). I refer to it as an excellent chainsaw because with proper management, it never disappoints.
It has two bolts holding the chain and the bar assembly, plus a worm screw that tightens the chain up, and this makes it easy when adjusting and flipping the bar over.
This prevents overstretching of the chain. It has a pressure release button that is helpful for this purpose too.

Customer Reviews and Scores
By the time I was writing this review, this product had 123 customer reviews on Amazon and was averagely rated with 4.6 stars out of 5 stars. Almost all the reviews were 100% positive, but I read one of a lady who wrote that changing the chain of this saw takes too much time. Her review has 11 comments, and they all disagreed. They recommended that she should ensure that the brake is off during disassembling.
I highly recommend this product to anyone in need of a good all-round chainsaw. It is affordable and works efficiently. It is lightweight and easy to use. If you are a fast timer, all you need is the instruction manual, and you will be good to go. Enjoy!
