Product Overview


The Husqvarna 460 Rancher Chainsaw is a robust saw, ideal for demanding cutting jobs where more power is required for a longer guide bar. This Chainsaw is equipped with an X-Torq engine with high torque over a wide RPM range, and is ergonomically designed to allow for easy handling of the saw's power.
  • The X-Torq engine delivers lower fuel consumption and reduced exhaust emission levels in accordance with the world's most stringent environmental regulations.

  • A carburetor air purge system removes air from the carburetor and fuel system for easy starting
  • Combined choke and stop control allows for easier starting and reduces the risk of engine flooding

  • LowVib system designed to reduce vibration levels to the operator, helping to lessen fatigue
  • Side mounted chain tensioner provides easy access to the chain tensioning device
  • Adjustable oil pump allows you to control oil flow depending on the application and weather conditions

Good powerful saw
Haven't used it more than 2 hours yet, but drastic improvement over the other two older chain saws I have been using. This was a gift to me and it came at the perfect time.

Bought this saw in February so I would have it for storm clean up, secure firewood and other uses. It was simple to assemble and started on the first try. I am use to chainsaws that are smaller yet weigh more with a lot more vibration. At the end of the day there is much less strain on me by using this saw. Another great thing about Husqvarna is their products are right up there with STIHL, yet much more reasonably priced.

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

This saw is great it cuts great starts easy never had a problem with it you can use it all day with out a problem and is great if you are going to cut down big trees
It's a little heaven but it's a big saw so it's understandable and has great power and with a perfectly sharp chain it will cut through nut like butter

I bought the 460 Rancher for firewood cutting and clearing of trees on my property in North Idaho. It has lived up to all my expectations. It was also priced lower than a comparable saw from the competition. Keep up the good work Husqvarna.

I bought this saw 3 months ago I've used it just about everyday since then, with a 24'' bar it's got power to spare, I have always used Stihl so this is a little slower then I am used to, but it has a LOT of torque, it's had problems idling no matter how much I tweaked it lately it's doing ok when first received it would die after 5 minutes regardless how high the idling was set, but I'm guessing that was just a new engine, other than that a suburb saw.

Excellent Saw for around the Farm
Been a Stihl Guy in the past. Decided to just try something different. Excellent choice in the 460 Rancher. Starts consistently on the 2nd pull and to date have had NO issues what so ever with it. I am more than pleased with my choice.
Local Dealer is great as well!!

Bought this for cutting firewood. Great power for it not being a professional saw. Big enough to cut trees over 30 inches. Most of which was tamarack and red fir.

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.
