Husqvarna Rancher 460
I have had this saw for over a year now and burn wood regularly thru the winter months. I was hesitant to buy the husky since all I have ever owned was stihl. At first, the saw was much harder to start than advertised however once the saw was worked in a little it starts with within two or three pulls every time. The power is pretty good and handles the 24 inch bar no problem but really this would be ideal with a 20 in bar. Its nice that Husqvarn gives us the option that other manufacturers do not. I will definitely be buying more Husqvarna saws

I have owned about every Stihl made, and this is my first Husqvarna. Needless to say I wont buy another Stihl, this saw is a work horse. It starts quick, and cuts quick.

Awesome Saw
I needed to upgrade to a bigger saw and the 460 fits all the needs. It does everything. I cut 30-40 full cord of hard wood every year and I love this saw. I looked around for a year at all the brands of saws and came back to Husqvarna. The power of the 460 makes cutting a breeze, it handles any chore I can throw at it. I can use this all day with ease

Twin Husqvarna
This is my second Husqvarna 455 Rancher, the first one still works fine, I just thought I needed a twin. It has so much power, I have been cutting lots of large trees, and this saw is so powerful, I just just love it almost more than my first 455 rancher. Easy starting, and just a great running saw, Thank you Husqvarna.

Have owned other brand name chain saws, but none compare to the 460 Rancher. My first use was cutting up a 22" diameter live oak up into firewood. The 460 made quick work of the job. I wish I would purchashed a Husqvarna before now.

What type of mix is used ?
A shopper on May 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 50:1 regular gas to 2-cycle oil. Be sure the 2-cycle oil is for small air cooled engines and not water cooled marine engines. You will also need a jug of Bar/chain oil which is available wherever chainsaws are sold.
