Who is the Rancher 55 Suitable For?

These machines were made for occasional users. Husqvarna was successful with this strategy and the “Rancher”, which became extremely popular among farmers and landowners in the United States, was no exception.

Husky Rancher 55 Construction

Husqvarna 55 chainsaw uses both injection-molded plastic parts and die-cast magnesium. The Husqvarna 55 chainsaw weighs in at 5.2kg.

This makes it ideal for property maintenance. Although the saw’s weight is increased by the robust magnesium crankcase and three-piece crankshaft design, it is strong enough to handle some tough jobs.

Husqvarna 55 Chainsaw Features

The engine’s output of 2.4 kW is sufficient to handle all-day property maintenance tasks. The engine has many other great features, including an effective anti-vibration dampener that reduces user fatigue; an easy-to-start engine; an inertia-activated chain brake for extra protection; and a pump that saves money by stopping bar and chain lubrication while the chain saw is idle.

Husqvarna 55 Availability and Spares

You can quickly find this machine on eBay by doing a search. This saw is sturdy and a great tool. Perhaps owners keep it and don’t sell it? There are plenty of spare parts. Owners can continue to use their favorite saw for many years.

In 2005, Rancher 55 production was stopped. The used market is seeing a decrease in numbers. It’s possible to find one that is in great running condition at a reasonable price. 

You might consider buying a Husqvarna replacement saw with a Husqvarna dealer warranty. You have a variety of options for replacing the 55, depending on your needs.
