Top Customer Reviews
The saw has good power and ergonomics. It is made with plastic parts, and is clearly not as sophisticated or powerful as the more expensive saws made by Husqvarna, but it still cuts great, and is very forgiving on the wrists due to the anti-vibe hardware. Be warned: it is bulky, and heavy, and if you are lugging it around with you all day, you will definitely grow weary. Also, 20-inches is really the best bar length for this machine. It provides good cutting depth with an excellent balance of power, without pushing the engine beyond its comfortable limits. This model is also sold with a 24-inch bar, but I would not recommend it, you would not be pleased with its performance using that setup.
Unlike the 435 and other Huskies, this saw does not come with a reusable air filter. You will have to buy new and replace them periodically. However, the patented X-torq airflow system really does an awesome job of keeping all but the finest debris away from the filter, ejecting particles out of the engine housing. If you're cutting 10 cord of wood annually, then your air filter will be fine for a long time. The air filter cover is held in place with philips head screws, which have plastic retainers to keep them from falling or getting lost when you remove the cover.
Package comes with a bar, chain, scrench, and plastic bar cover. I HIGHLY recommend that you use premium, non-ethanol gas with this saw. Trust me, I am not being a snob when I say that. These machines run much, much better when you give them the right fuel, and they also run cooler, which prolongs engine life.
All in all, I am pleased with this purchase. This saw is clearly a home owner/semi pro machine, not a powerful logger saw, but for what it is intended, it is awesome. It has a handful of quirky little drawbacks but they do not prevent it from being a good addition to your tool shed. For the price of $420, I found it to be well worth it.
They suggest reversing the bar with every use and so getting the bar on and off has to be easy, and it is. Two bolts hold the bar and chain assembly, and a worm screw tightens up the chain; so it's easy to adjust and flip the bar over. The starting sequence looks to be somewhat long and convoluted but after a few times it makes sense, and the machine starts right up. A pressure release button is a big help. Like all chain saws, you need to keep an eye on a new chain because they can stretch fairly quickly. Because of the easy adjustment screw, it is simple to make such adjustments.
On my old chain saw, bar oil spilled over everything, but on the Rancher, it has some kind of oil regulator that keeps the oil where it belongs. The 20" bar and the machine are not too heavy, but your arms will get a workout. It's the perfect compromise between a big professional level chain saw and one for home use.
