Deal Details

Edit: Looks like it's dead now, the price has gone up to $389.88.

Sears has the Husqvarna 455 Rancher 55.5cc Chainsaw for $289.88 (add to cart to see price). Move quick if you want one. This is almost $110 less than what they usually sell for ($399). It was $260.89 a few days ago for a short time before it went back to the reg. price of $399. The one time a 455 was on the FP it was for $365 and that was the 50cc model.

Product Description

Get A 55.5CC Chain Saw Built for Any Job
If you care for a big property, you know how important versatile equipment is, and a chainsaw is no exception. From a rush of growth after spring rains, to trees torn down by violent storms, to turning deadfall into winter warmth, all kinds of demanding work lay ahead. Make sure you have a brawny gas chainsaw that’s up to the task of scoring, slicing and chewing through tough wood. Make space in your garage for the Husqvarna 455 Rancher 55.5cc chain saw, a versatile saw long enough to handle big jobs, and tough enough to last for decades.
When it comes to gas chainsaws, one of the last things we think about is comfort, but when designing the 455 Rancher, Husqvarna kept this at the forefront of their blueprints. Without a comfortable fit and ample agility to operate smoothly at a variety of angles, your options are severely limited. With an ergonomic bottom handle and grooved front bar, this chainsaw gives you the comfortable fit and accurate control you need for hours of tearing through timber, be it on rough or soft terrain, on a slope, ladder or firmly planted on the ground.
More than 3-1/2 horse power created by the ultra-efficient X-Torque engine pulls the chain along the 20-inch blade, taking you through a variety of big woods while consuming less gas and producing up to 60% less emissions than previous models. Always ready, the Husqvarna 455 Rancher 55.5cc chain saw features the Smart Start system coupled with a combine choke/stop for pick-up and go starting season after season.
Built to last with a reinforced crankcase and three-piece crankshaft, this gas chainsaw will make a dependable, versatile addition to your shed or garage for years to come. So stop messing around with wimpy, wasteful machines, put the power and efficiency of a machine built by the best, bring the Husqvarna 455 Rancher chainsaw home today and get cutting.
55.5cc 3-1/2hp X-Torque engine reduces fuel consumption up to 2% and emissions up to 60%
20 in. blade to cut bigger woods
Smart Start and purge pump provide easier starting
Three piece crankshaft and reinforced crankcase improve durability
Combined choke/stop control allows for easier starting and reduces the risk of engine flooding

In case you ignored the instructions below, here are instructions on how to reset the chain brake [vminnovations.com]if you took the cover off while the brake was engaged.

The information below is worth taking note of (thanks jipperson):

Quote from jipperson View Post :
I do parts and service for Husqvarna and I would just like to say please always make sure the chain brake is disengaged before taking off the side cover. For some reason people like to take the cover off with the brake engaged on these saws. The handle for the brake stays on the saw and the mechanism on the cover. You have to disengage the brake with a pair of pliers or something else and it is a very stout spring without the handle to help. At my shop I made a tool to make it easy so I do not have to charge people to disengage it for them. I cannot however speak for other shops as they could and might charge you to do this. Btw, this is a great saw.

I know, I was the OP and I posted the link to that thread above. Smilie The price went back to $399 after a few hours and the thread was moved to deal talk.

tried to buy it but not available for in store pickup anywhere within 50 miles of my location. shipping option says temporarily unavailable?

I have a Husky 353 with 18 inch bar that I've used for about 7 years. I've used and abused it to clear property for our new house in a gnarly old grove. I've had to replace the gas line and of course lots of chains (lot of metal buried in that old grove), but its been a great machine.
I've run into some larger trees lately that I think this saw would handle better.
It's much heavier than my 353, so I'll probably just use it for the larger trees or I think it would wear me out.

this is a great price, this saw is 450 bucks at my local Runnings store.

Wish it would let me place an order

Thank you for that. Smilie I only wish it would last longer than 5 minutes for shipping, so more people could get in on the deal. I've checked a few different zip codes for store availability and there are still a few out there......how long it takes before the price goes back to $399 again is another question.

Yeah, I had noticed that and I updated the OP to reflect shipping no longer being available. I figured that wouldn't last too long. Frown Did you try any zip codes outside the 50 mile radius (assuming you would want to drive that far).

Pretty good deal, they have 2 in the Atlanta area but I already have a decent Craftsman one. This Husky has the same HP as a lawn mower (3.5HP).

When it was $260 I managed to get one shipped. I was worried it might not go through too, but it shipped UPS and came a few days ago. If you went for store pickup I wouldn't think there would be any problem as long as their inventory count is correct....but then again this is Sears, so who knows.

If you're in the "Shop Your Way Max" program, the shipping is free. It was showing $18.00 shipping for me until I entered my Max program ID and the shipping then went to free. Also, If you are a member of the SYWM program, they're giving $100 off a $500 purchase (until Feb.3). You can get 2 of these saws for $480 or $240 each. Maybe you got a friend, neighbor, or family member that needs also needs a saw & you can sell one of them to them.
