Husqvarna 460 Rancher Chainsaw On Sale
With 24" Bar
A robust all round 24" chainsaw, ideal for demanding cutting jobs where more power is required for a longer guide bar. Equipped with X-Torq® engine with high torque over a wide rpm range. The saw’s body is ergonomically designed allowing for easy handling of the saw’s power. Further features of the Husqvarna 460 Rancher chainsaw include Smart Start®, Air Injection, LowVib® and combined choke/stop control.
The Rancher is outfitted with Husqvarna's X-Torq engine, designed to use fuel efficiently and reduce emissions. It pumps out 3.62 horsepower employing a 3.68 cubic inch displacement. As they say, ain't no replacement displacement! This saw has ample power to produce short work of big wood. It runs on the forged, three-piece crankshaft.
The Husqvarna 460 Rancher Chainsaw boasts several features to aid in starting. First, there's a combined choke/stop control which will be supposed to reduce the danger of flooding. Helpfully, the choke automatically places the on/off switch in the “on” position. An air purge removes air from the system to greatly help with start-up, too. A compression release button definitely seems to produce start-up easier as well. It's all section of Husqvarna's SmartStart engine and starter design. I'll note, however, that I noticed that it sometimes takes several pulls on the cord to restart the chainsaw if its. Interestingly, the oil pump is adjustable so you can modulate it depending on the weather conditions and the application.
Along with the air purge feature, the Husqvarna's air system uses centrifugal motion to eliminate particles before they reach the air filter. The idea is that there isn't to completely clean the air filter as often, and better airflow means extended engine life.
Anti-vibe technology is becoming part of several tools, including the Husqvarna 460 Rancher Chainsaw. Husqvarna calls it LowVib and it keeps the leading handle vibration at 3.8 m/s² and a corner handle at 6.9 m/s² ;.Additionally, the 7° handle offset is supposed to offer the consumer a much more comfortable, secure grip. The inertia-activated chain brake ensures that kickback risk is minimized in a bindup or bar pinch.
There's quick access to the side-mounted chain tensioner for the times you discover it dangling a little lower than you'd like. Felling marks permit you to direct the fall of the tree you cut. I'm also pleased to see some substantial bucking spikes. When Michael Springer performed a big battery-powered chainsaw shootout, bucking spikes were a place of interest. These are teeth that bite the log for control and leverage while see-sawing – or bucking – the saw back and forth by way of a log.
In general, Husqvarna's 460 Rancher is a great saw. If cutting three foot thick logs is part of your typical routine, the Rancher probably isn't your go-to saw, but as tested, with an 18” bar and chain, it's certain to cause you to proud if lightning hits that big ass oak tree in the backyard. Bring it to the max with a 24-inch bar, and that oak tree's your government won't stand the opportunity either. As you may expect, 3.6 hp makes short work of fuel along with limbs, so keep plenty of 50:1 and b/c oil on hand. Expect an effective capacity to weight ratio for a saw of the Rancher's capabilities. Fourteen pounds can't be ignored after one hour or two, however you will appreciate how that well-balanced weight counteracts potential kickback. The 460 Rancher can keep your wood pile tall and your ranch groomed.
