    Pros: Too many to list, see the rest of the review. 
    Cons: None

    Summary: This is probably my ninth or tenth Husky, I've tried Stihls, Echos, and a few others.  I fix my own saws when there are problems, if something needs to be adjusted, repaired, or replaced, I find out how (usually Google, Youtube, or friends), and ... read more

    Pros: Good power, Starts easy, never vapor locks
    Cons: a bit heavy, noisy clutch

    Summary: I purchased the Husky Rancher 55 last year after a bit of researching, I allready own two Stihl saws but was looking for a good firewood saw for under $500, The power to weight ratio wasnt quite as good as my 036 Pro nor did it have a compression ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Always starts.
    Always runs.
    Cons: I like the chain brake style on the newer Huskys.

    Summary: I have owned a 55 Rancher for about 5 years now. It's been a fantastic saw for me. When it's cold outside you have to give a good pull the first time to start it. After the first pull its not bad. Be sure to follow the instructions on how to ... read more

    Pros: Power, well built, smooth running
    Cons: Hard pulling, have to know how to use choke!!!

    Summary: I bought this saw for about $350 after managing to leave a casino with that amount after less than an hour. The saw has worked very well for me until I managed to bend the bar a little bit, so I'm going to have to buy a new bar. Starting this saw was a ... read more

    Pros: Powerful, reliable, durable.  Makes quick work of big trees.
    Cons: Inconvient chain tensioner.
    Maybe the difficult rope pull.

    Summary: I grew up a country boy, observing then using all kinds of saws from a huge, unmanageable David Bradley, to Poulans, Homelites, etc.  Nothing I've used or seen compares to this saw.  It works all day without complaining and, contrary to a few ... read more

    Pros: 20 inch bar
    Fast starting
    Plenty of power and the price was lower than Stihl.

    Cons: Nothing.

    Summary: I work with the NPS and they have Stihl saws. I've put my model 55 against theirs and I win hands down every time. Maybe the reviewer that did not like this saw (above) does not realize the saw has an on/off switch! I love the cylinder pressure release ... read more
