SPECIAL OFFER:  A free 100ml bottle of HUSQVARNA HP 2-Stroke Oil is available when you order this machine. T&Cs apply.

A robust, all-round saw ideal for demanding jobs.

Husqvarna's 455 Rancher boasts easy handling and high torque over a wide rpm range, offering impressive performance in all cutting conditions. With an 18 inch bar length.

X-Torq offers high performance with excellent efficiency

This model has a 55.5cc X-Torq engine, which provides lower fuel consumption and reduced exhaust emission levels to meet the most stringent environmental regulations. The 455 weighs just 5.8 kg, making this a lightweight and well-balanced machine perfect for occasional use.

Easy to use without fatigue

Another great feature of this engine is Husqvarna's Smart Start system, with the engine and starter having been designed to enable the machine to start quickly with minimum effort. Starter cord resistance is reduced by up to 40 percent. Effective anti-vibration dampeners absorb vibrations before they can reach your arms and hands, helping make this a superbly comfortable tool to work with. An improved, angled grip, facilitates a more natural working position.

High-quality Husqvarna design

A centrifugal air cleaning system results in reduced wear and longer operating times between filter cleanings. The chain tensioner is mounted on the side to make it easy to adjust quickly and simply, while the oil pump can also be adjusted to allow you to get the ideal level of lubrication for your chain. A forged three-piece crankshaft provides maximum durability for the toughest jobs, while felling marks and a combined choke/stop control are ideal for improved ergonomics and working precision.

Comes with a 2 year conditional warranty.

This saw is not classed as a professional tool but the build quality looks good, it has plenty of power and can certainly out perform most others in the same price range.A good all round piece of equipment, not too heavy and easy to start.
