The best chainsaw I have ever owned in over 30 years.

I have been using this saw all summer cutting up several trees which will garner me 15 chords of wood. Some of the trunks I am cutting are 4ft in circumference. This saw is ergonomically comfortable making the process easier on my 52 year old body!!!

Power, Power, Power, Now Husqvarna Has Given MeThe Power!
If you want quality you have to pay for and I have learned it the hard way. When I had to recently replace my Craftsman chainsaw I did not know where to start looking. I first purchased a Poulan pro 18" chainsaw, but that was a complete dud. In just 15 minutes time the engine seized up and I ended up taking it back and exchanging it for the 20" Husqvarna 455 Rancher gas operated chainsaw. Sure, I had to pay a lot more ($400) but I am very pleased that this one did not seize up. I found …

About this topic


This is a very cool looking orange color to it and it is only 36" long overall. It is 8" wide and 10.5" tall. You should not get tired when using this because it only weighs 17 pounds when it is full of gas and oil. This will not come in a case, you will have to purchase one of those at about sixty dollars. This chainsaw has all of the usual stuff with the exception of all of that power that comes with a 55cc power motor.

There are probably a lot of information about this chainsaw's engine that a lot of people will not understand but I will still list it; such as cylinder volume is (3,38cu.in./55,5cm.) the cylinder bore is (1,85 in./ 47mm.) the stroke is (1,26 inch/ 32mm) at idle speed the engine runs 2700 rpm. The power that this uses is (2,6/3,5 kW/hp@9000 rpm).

The ignition system of this chainsaw is state of the art type and will usually use a Champion made brand name plug numbered RCJ 7Y or NKG BPMR 7A. If you are going to replace this spark plug yourself, the plug usually comes pre-gapped but, it is always a good thing to check it and make sure that it is the right gap and that number is(0,02/0,5).

The fuel and lubrication system should be watched constantly every time that you fill the gas tank, you  should also fill the bar oil reservoir. This will help in keeping the chain sharp and moving easily. The gas will have to be mixed with an oil additive to help keep the inside of the engine lubricated.

This chainsaw only weighs 17 pounds when ...
