“I am a homeowner and I have a recertified Husqvarna...”

Written on: 23/01/2013 by matthewmc (1 review written)

I am a homeowner and I have a recertified Husqvarna 460 that I purchased from the manufacturer after a severe windstorm took down huge trees in my yard. I am very happy with the saw. The saw works fine. I have two extra chains that I rotate on it and keep it very sharp. I cut "camp wood" with it occasionally. The saw works flawlessly and leaves piles of long shavings in it's wake… Read Full Review

“Nice saw for the money... but”

Written on: 14/10/2012 by HeatWithFirewood (1 review written)

A former Stihl 024 owner, I bought my first Husky back in the 1980s because they came out with a quieter saw, the easy start decompress button and anti-vibration handles. That Husky 55 lasted 25 years of cutting firewood - 5 to 10 cords per year - and I still have it for backup. My 2 year old Husky 460 stopped oiling 2nd time out and after 3 dealer repairs it's still not right. I thought the 24" bar would be nice so I wouldn't have to bend over so far to cut (I'm older now and my back is… Read Full Review

“virgin chain saw consumer”

Written on: 08/04/2012 by joepeeps (1 review written)

I had a tree company drop 2 85ft silver maple trees that hung over my home. I was responsable for the clean up. The 460 rancher with 24in bar is my first saw. I have used sthal and polan. The 460 has a large amount of power. It had no problem powering through the 42in trunk. One pull start off the shelf. Minimal fuel usage. It does seem to use alot of bar oil even on the second setting. I am concerned about the compression relief button. It seems to be just another thing to malfunction. Easy to… Read Full Review

My wife got me the 460 for my birthday and I love it. I have put it through a lot, being from the backwoods of northern Ontario it has seen some rough demand, but this saw has served me very well. It is reliable and robust and good quality for the price. Even in the harshess of Canadian winters it remains a solid product for what I need… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2011

Picked this saw up after burning up a lesser saw. I only use saws a few times a month, but I make mostly large difficult cuts and rip large logs. Runs great and smooth. Starts easily with the purge and the two choke positions actually work well and I rarely need to tighten the chain. I have a 24" bar and a carbide chain and have no fears of plunging into any wood. Not the most torque of any saw i have used but the comfort and balance more than make up for it. I simply asked my favorite store… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/10/2010

First off, I love this saw. After burning my way through a fair share of chainsaws, I settled on the 460 after a local tree company recommended-they bought for a quick replacement when there pro saws were at down. I use this saw for clearing and firewood for 2 months- been through about 6 cords, and it has performed very well. Compared to the XP saws, it has less power to weight, however, for the price it is very well-powered. The reviewer prior complaining of the saw for his 24-36" logs… Read Full Review

I BOUGHT A HUSQVARNA 460 IN SEPT 2007. THE SAW HAS HELD UP OK EXCEPT FOR OILER ISSUES.IT HAS BROKE ONE OILER, WHICH WAS REPLACED, NOW THE NEW ONE IS NOT WORKING. THESE ARE OK SAWS FOR THE GUY WHO CUTS 3-4 CORDS A YEAR. I AM CUTTING 10-15 CORDS OF PINE, DOUG FIR, AND TAMARACK MUCH OF IT 25-34 INCHES ACROSS THE STUMP. THE HUSQVARNA 460 DOES NOT HAVE THE HORSEPOWER FOR THIS TYPE OF WORK.OOVERALL ITS AN OK SAW,IVE HAD NO HUGE ISSUES, BUT WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH MORE SATISFIED WITH THE 357XP OR THE 372… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/11/2009

Have run Husky products for a long time. Had a 55 and it gave up ghost so I purchased a 460 to replace. It has more power through entire power band and will easily run a 24" bar. Have cut 3 cords of wood so far and am very pleased. If you are having problems starting the saw READ THE DIRECTIONS. Simply put push gas bulb, push compression release, pull choke and pull cord. When engine sputters push in choke and pull rope DO NOT hit the throttle. Have run Stihls and this is every bit as… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/05/2009 by Fox Man (1 review written)

Bought 3 42cc brand name saws and rented 1 all smoked or calfed causing a refund at the store. I wasted 3 days back and forth trying to save money on a cheaper saw. Got a 460 Husqvarna Rancher. Dealer let me loose on logs out back for a demo. Last thing he said; "we will miss you except for oil and a few blades".

I tree felled 1.5 acres then cut logs into 1' lengths was incredible power and ongoing performance sun up to sun down all week. Best $600.00 investment I ever made. No carburetor… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/01/2009 by wranch (1 review written)

We have a 20" bar on the Husqvarna 460 saw and it plugs up with wood chips enough to stop the chain.we have been cutting wood since 1973 and never had this problem with the Stihl or Homelite saws we have used in the past we really like the overall performance of the saw but cannot use the saw with this problem. My dealer says Husquvarna hasn't had a problem like this. We tried this saw with a 18" bar and it works good. I think the difference is in the width of the bar as there is maybe not… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/01/2008

Took it back to the dealer. I was firm on my belief that a chain should not fall off all the time so I left it there and told him it was his to have and I would dispute it on my credit card. In return of leaving it there his son called Husqvarna and got a work order warranty number to have some parts ordered for it. These parts are a rim sprocket and since I put this on I have not had any more problems with the chain coming off… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/05/2007 by MadDogAnger (1 review written)

I purchased the 460 to supplement our ice storm debris removal. Since day one, the saw has worked flawlessly. We have felled several large diameter trees (the maximum size being a 40" diameter elm when our 372 was unavailable) without any issues. The x-torq engine takes a little getting used to if you have used the older Husqvarna models. It seems to take higher rpm's to generate similar torque as the older models, but once it is going it just doesn't stop! Like all saws, be sure to… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/03/2007 by cricomac (1 review written)

I purchased a Husqvarna 460 chainsaw to supplement the smaller, model 350 Husqvarna I already have. The new saw self-destructed (manufacturing defect) immediately after starting it for the first time. That was three months ago. The dealer can't fix the saw because parts are not available from Husqvarna. Husqvarana refuses to help me because I have a dealer service issue. This might be a great saw for most people, but mine was DOA and nobody has been able/willing to help me. Husqvarna policy is… Read Full Review
