Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed and a waste of money I bought this saw to cut down trees, do firewood etc. well, this is saw is a complete disappointment. It bogs down all the time and the process takes so much longer than it should. It can hardly handle cutting anything! I am so disappointed in this saw. I don’t use it hardly because I don’t cut down trees that often at all and I have been using my Stihl (MS 291) to do my firewood. I cannot consider this saw a reliable saw. It was a waste of money, would’ve returned but they don’t let you. It bothers me everyday that this saw us useless. I won’t sell it because I feel like I’d be passing the buck and I don’t want to do that. The ONLY reason I gave it two stars was because physically, it holds up. It hasn’t rattled part or broke in any way physically. It looses three stars because performance is disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable chainsaw We opted to go with the larger chain saw as my husband often cuts larger trees. This saw cuts through any type of like its butter. Great powerful motor and the longer bar makes quick work of any project. We went from a 18” chainsaw to this one and the difder new is night and day. It’s been put through the paces and it works as well as it did 2 months ago when we first bought it. I recommend spend the couple extra dollars for the more powerful motor especially if you splitting your own wood for heat. You can drop down bar sizes with this if a 24” inch bar is to big and you won’t sacrifice power.

I have several large white oak logs I need to cut that vary from 40-46" in diameter. Do I need a saw with a 46-48" bar or can I cut halfway through from one side and then from the other? Would the tip of the bar cutting, 1st cut cause kickback?

Asked by: 1bite
Hey 1bite, I would advise cutting the tree from one side and the other. I would recommend consulting this video for guidance: Also, if you feel uncomfortable attempting to cut down larger trees, I would also strongly suggest reaching out to a local arborist/tree removal service for assistance with your tree removal needs to ensure safety for both you and your property. Thanks for considering Husqvarna for your outdoor power equipment needs!

What file size does the husqvarna 460 take

Asked by: Aaron84
Hello Aaron84. Thank you for your question. Typically a .325-in chain takes a 3/16-in file kit, however I would recommend checking in your owner's manual for verification. The correct file size is listed in the manual. If you cannot find your manual, you are welcome to download one from our website: Thank you for choosing Husqvarna for your outdoor power equipment needs.
