Nice item, Have a problem? Read All. Stihl case fits 455,460 Rancher.
on July 19, 2012
I purchased this case for my new Husqvarns 450 Chainsaws,And received free shipping.
The saw fits inside with no issues,And there is room for your Manual,Tools,Extra chains. Yes it is made of a type of plastic,But so are many parts on your expensive car or truck!!
The new cases do not have a front latch! Why? Because they improved the latches, Made them stronger and you can get replacement latches if any break.
Many plastic cases are made where you can not get a replacement latch, What do you do? Mickey Mouse some type of closure,Or buy a new case. What is wrong with a nice fitting case that works, And you can replace worn or broken latches without buying a complete new case.
For those who said "It did not fit my saw" Get specs before you buy, No case fits every model made. Check with Husqvarna or a web site for case part numbers for your chainsaw.
If you want a nice molded case for your Husqvarna 455,460 Rancher,A Stihl orange color molded chainsaw case works. I have my 460 Rancher in a Stihl case,the Stihl case looks smaller then a Husqvarna case,But a 455,460 Rancher fits just fine.
I wanted a nice fitting carry case for my chainsaw, I looked on Husqvarna's web site for my model chainsaw, And looked for carry cases. Wow! They have descriptions,pictures and part numbers, Write down the number that works for your chainsaw, Then go look on sites for the best price.
This Husqvarna case is Very Good!! It fits and protects my 450 chainsaw,Is weatherproof. Price was best I found and free shipping from Amazon. If you think the price is too high, Get a 5 gallon bucket,Drop your saw in and carry it around.. You can get a new orange five gallon bucket at Home Depot for about $5.
As far as the toolbox style cases, I do not like them. They look like you made it yourself from a toolbox,If bar oil or gasoline leaks inside it leaks outside. With the molded fitted case,what goes inside stays inside. Lift out your saw and wipe it out with a rag, The toolbox style has folds and corners that takes more time to clean inside,even when fuylly opened.
Thanks for reading my review, Best of whatever in your choices.
I really like the Stihl Chainsaw molded cases. I have three, with a Stihl MS240, A Husqvarna 240, And A new Husqvarna Rancher 460. They all fit with no issues.
