HUSQVARNA 455 Rancher

  • Air Injection

    Extends the interval between filter cleaning, improving efficiency and increases engine life.


    Quick chain adjustments

    Side-mounted chain tensioner is conveniently located to allow quick and easy chain adjustment.



    Delivers lower fuel consumption and reduced exhaust emission levels in accordance with the world´s most stringent environmental regulations.


    Two mass principle

    Effectively minimising vibrations by isolating the engine from the handles reducing operator fatigue.


    Adjustable oil pump

    Adjustable oil pump allows you to adjust chain lubrication to suit all working applications.


    Quick-release air filter

    Facilitates cleaning and replacement of the air filter.


    Felling marks

    Distinct felling marks for better felling precision.


    Combined choke/stop control

    Combined choke/stop control allows for easier starting and reduces the risk of the engine flooding.


    Three-piece crankshaft

    Forged three-piece crankshaft giving maximum durability for the toughest applications.


    Smart Start®

    The engine and starter have been designed so the machine starts quickly with minimum effort. Resistance in the starter cord is reduced by up to 40%.


    Ergonomic handles

    Angled front handle allows the operator to work in a natural working position reducing fatigue.


    Inertia chain brake

    Effective inertia-activated chain brake.


    Easy starting

    Air purge for very easy starting.
