Husqvarna 460 Rancher Review – A Great Saw for Every DIY-er

Husqvarna 460 Rancher Review – The Husqvana 460 Chainsaw has a side mounted chain tensioner that provides it with easier access, along with the 20-inch bar.

A quick release air filter is also present to make the cleaning process really smooth and for ease of replacing the air filter. The CARB compliant chainsaw has a crankshaft that has forged 3 pieces together to give more durability.

Husqvarna 460 Rancher Review – Features / Pros – Cons

The chainsaw is around 20 inches in length. The capacity of the chainsaw engine is 60.3cc and it is a 2-stroke Engine that is powered by gas.

The dimensions of the chainsaw are given by 10.5×12.75×29 inches and it weighs around 12.79 pounds. The maximum length of the Bar is 20 inches.

The chainsaw is generally used when the job demands more power. When a longer guide bar and greater power is required, this chainsaw can be used.

The saw body has been designed ergonomically in such a way that it is easy to handle the saw’s power. Smart Start, Low Vib, Air Injection and the choke/stop control that is combined are some of the key features of the chainsaw.

The performance is not affected even if a 24-inch bar is used. The additional 4 inches do not make much of a difference and cut smoothly.

Riveted to the cover, a plate is present. Once it is refilled with the fuel, the chainsaw can be started back up in one or two pulls. The chainsaw also comes with the user manual, the warranty, as well as other content.


The chainsaw has enough power and agility to go right through the tree trunk.  It is a rugged and heavy duty saw which you can use even if you are not a professional saw cutter.

Wood that has a diameter of around 3 feet can be cut with the saw easily. A model that is even more professional costs twice as much as this.  The oiler has adjustable settings namely lo, hi and mid.

The oiler does not necessarily have to be adjusted to high; it can be adjusted based on the smoothness of the performance.


Several Husqvarna 460 Rancher Reviews show that the chain brake has to be removed before the chain cover is removed. However, the chain brake lever is not easy to move and the chain cover cannot be easily removed.

The pull rope also breaks easily. So, care should be taken to either have a backup or more money should be spent in getting a more expensive chainsaw that performs as well as this one.

Husqvarna 460 Rancher Review – Bottom Line

If you own a house or you are the type of person who enjoys light backyard work where you like to chop trees but are not a professional at cutting trees, then this chainsaw is highly recommended for you.

You can expect it to perform smoothly and be efficient, but you cannot expect it to be professional.
