This is my second full season with my 455 Rancher. We have been having a huge issue here in Colorado with pine beetle infestations of lodgepole pine trees. I have been felling and bucking pine for firewood. I've been putting in about 15 hours per week with my Husky saw. It has performed well. The cutting I have been doing has been at 9000 feet elevation and even at this altitude the saw has adequate power for what I've been cutting. Most of the trees I've been dropping are 12" to 24" in diameter. The only negative issues I have encountered can be traced immediately back to the operator of the saw (me!). The biggest problem I've had is that I filed way too much off of the chain rakers. At that point the saw was no longer cutting, but tearing through the wood. I filed the teeth heavily and that problem was solved. The carburetor adjustment takes some learning, but is pretty simple once you get the procedure ironed out (learned) in your head. At 9000 feet I can get it to run sufficiently rich so as to prevent engine damage, but still not smoke much if at all during operation. The last tree I fell was 22" DBH and around 110 feet tall. I felled the tree and bucked it into 18" lengths for firewood in about 1.5 hours. I cut every part of the tree down to 2" in diameter for heating wood. Not bad at all. I would buy this saw again for sure. I had a chance during the late summer to cut about a cord of hard maple into firewood with this saw as well. This was at an elevation of 2000 feet. With a carburetor adjustment the saw was off and running. It did seem to be a bit on the lean side at that elevation, but it never overheated or lost power. This maple was 14" in diameter and the saw had absolutely no problem with the heavy, dense wood.Read more ›

Pros:
- Easy starting, cold, hot or in between
- Powerful and fast cutting
- Easy manual chain adjust
- Sensitive chain brake

Cons:
- Loud
- Won't load the wood into the pickup

Where I live, dry ponderosa pine goes for about $125 per cord blocked and delivered. I've cut about a dozen cords of mostly dead-fall ponderosa in the 11-months I've owned the 455. The trees have ranged up to 32" caliper but most are 24" or less and I harvest the entire tree down to 2" branches. My wood stove happily consumes all. If one evaluates the effort required to block, load and unload a tree, it goes something like this: 25% cutting into blocks up to 14" long, 5% handling before cutting, 65% loading the blocks and limbs, 5% unloading. Splitting the large blocks into suitable firewood is akin to Tom's fence, ponderosa splits so easily with a 7 lb splitting maul that I look forward to the sessions.

In the dozen plus hours of actual cutting time I have these observations:
- the 455 is not overpowered, having the 20" bar buried its full length in a log and you wish it had more motor.
- the 455 is light enough such that only when cutting at shoulder height or above is weight an issue.
- the 455's spring mounted motor/bar/chain makes vibration a non-issue.
- In hindsight, I would NOT be willing to pay an extra $300 for a lighter more powerful "pro" saw.

A chainsaw is a high maintenance machine, sharpening the chain frequently pays big dividends, you can tell by the chips, big chips = sharp chain, sawdust = dull chain. Chain adjustment is needed with each load along with flipping the bar occasionally. Be sure to clean the bar oil hole when flipping the bar, I didn't once and I could believe how poorly it cut.

I just picked up a 455 Rancher about a month ago (today is 4 May, 2006). This is a great saw. I had been using for more than 20 years, and still use to some degree a Stihl 028; another excellent saw.

There are some pros and cons to this saw as with all things.

Here's what I like. It's easy to operate and maintain. Accessibility of the under-cowel components such as the air filter, spark plug, and clutch housing is a no-brainer. It starts easy. In fact, you really don't need the pressure valve. It "pops" after a few short and fast pulls. Remember, once the saw "pops" with the choke, un-choke it and pull it again. You do not need to warm a two stroke with the choke on like you would a 4 stroke engine. Attempting to warm with the choke is the biggest cause of two stroke engine flooding.

Here's what I do not like. The low/hi mixture settings are limited by EPA regulations; a complete and total joke. If you remove the controls to optimize your settings, the warranty is void. But, I think it's better to do that than cook engine from lean settings. There aren't enough chainsaws running in any given period of the day to justify this regulation. So if you are a casual user, really pay attention to the break in procedures. Since the saws run lean, you need to make sure to break them in with extra care. If you use them much more frequently, remove the EPA limiters and richen out the hi/low mix, otherwise you will cook your engine.

Overall this is a great saw. The chisel chains do well for heavier applications. Be careful of kickback with these style chains. You can get low-kick back chains from any dealer. It's all a matter of personal preference.

I have outfitted my saw with an Oregon 20" Bar, chain, and rim sprocket.
