You may have a bent bar, or you could be putting the chain on a little too loose. Perhaps the chain is not getting lube ?
Possible that the chain tentssioner and or adjustment is loosening up as you are using the unit. Other than that maybe a defective new blade ?

SOURCE: 455 rancher chainsaw does not pump oil to the chain

If you look under the machine by the chain you'll see a flat head screw (next to the sprocket) which controls the bar and chain oil flow . Try to turn the screw and check if there's any oil flow to the chain . If not you will need to replace the oil pump (part # 537 10 55-02 which will cost you about $35.00) Hope this help

SOURCE: Oil is leaking out the bottom of the saw after

check the hose that goes to the oilway if everything checks clear you may have a crack in your oil tank due to excessive vibration and weak molding.

SOURCE: my husky 455 rancher is not oiling the chain

The problem is very likely to be a clogged but more likely faulty internal oil pump (especially if your chainsaw is old).

Hope it helps.

SOURCE: cannot keep chain on bar and ruins chain when it

I would guess that you have already checked this but many years ago I got ahold of a bar for my stihl .029 super farm boss that had a slight warp in it. It would work fine at most r.p.m.'s but when you ran it wide open it would toss the chain. It took me awhile to find this and on mine if you wern't watching very close you would never see it. I hope this helps you some, Good luck and thanks

I havea 455 rancher need to know which spocket it takes it shows two types 3/8 and .325


It depends on the bar/chain combination you have, if you clean the guide bar the pitch of the chain will be stamped into it, .325 or .375 (3/8) it will also have the gauge of the bar, 050 or 058, and the number of drive links in the chain.

How do you rePlace the chain on the 455 rancher?


You take the chain cover off of the bar. It is two nuts. Take them off and the cover will come off. Slide the bar toward you and the chain will become slack. You can then slide off the chain from the sprocket. To put a new one on. You will need to turn the chain adjustment back all the way to the left. Then put the chain back over the sprocket, then onto the bar. Put the chain cover back on and tighten the chain back up. Then tighten the two nuts back to tight.

What is the longest bar i can go on my 455 rancher saw ?


Available power and the amount of oil may both be a limiting factors. Your oiler has a 3 position adjustment (as do most intermediate level Huskies) with 20" being the longest recommended. My 359 is virtually the same and I run a 24" Carlton bar on mine with no problem. If you opt for a longer bar let the saw determine cutting speed. Come on over, my bar and chain will fit your saw, try it before you buy it. If you have an acquaintance with a 24" small mount Husky bar that is probably a good idea. I would likely not recommend a 24" bar if regularly cutting Oak or a hard wood, I do a lot of Fir.

Turning up the bar oil?


An “OM, 455e Rancher, 455 Rancher, 460 Rancher, 2009-09, EN, FR, ES” Follows (may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2009/HOUS2009_1151382-49.pdf
An excerpt from page 38 of the above OM follows (forcing it may render it inoperative):
Adjustment of the oil pump
Adjustments are made by turning the screw using a screwdriver or combination spanner.
The machine is supplied from the factory with the screw set to position 2.
Turning the screw clockwise will reduce the oil flow and turning the screw anti-clockwise will increase the oil flow.
Recommended settings:
• Bar 13"-15": Position 1 (full CW)
• Bar 15"-18": Position 2 (center)
• Bar 18"-20": Position (full CCW)
These recommendations apply to Husqvarna’s chain oil, for other chain oils increase the oil flow by one step.
WARNING! The engine must be stopped when making adjustments.

All OMs and IPLs can be found here:
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)

06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000; please contact Husqvarna for single digit clarification http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/customer-support/)
15 = week produced – March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

Chain for 24


Oregon Bar & Chain Selector
http://www.oregonchain.com/pro/lookups/selguide.aspx?BusId=OCS&SellReg=USA&LangId=ENG
Select "Husqvarna; 455; 24"; All; All; All" and make your choice. A couple of things to consider, it only returns 3/8 pitch chain, 0.325 is also available. I ordered a 24" bar for my 359, a Carlton that only takes 81 drive links (82 is normal). I saved $20 by ordering that bar, I just have to be careful when ordering chain. I prefer Stihl chain to Oregon. My Husky is maintained by Stihl mechanics and gets Stihl 2-cycle oil; please do not tell her, she may never run for me again. LOL

Husqvarna rancher... chain tensioner not working


A Husqvarva IPL for a 455 Rancher 2005-01, follows (may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/usa/2005/I05000/I0501036.pdf
See print "A" (clutch cover) pn 537 28 64-01 & pn 503 21 70-10, if missing or loose these may cause your problem. If not an inspection of the parts beneath may disclose the defect.

If the bar is what can be moved pn 537 28 65-01 or 537 28 66-01 may be stripped. After I determined what parts need replacement, I would contact a local Husky Dealer. They may have these parts on hand and if not ordering through them should save you shipping and handling fees.

If your saw was not manufactured between Jan 2005 and Mar 2005 you can find your IPL here:
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000; please contact Husqvarna for single digit clarification http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/customer-support/)
15 = week produced – March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

How interchangeable are replacement chain bars for older Husqvarna chainsaws? I've never replaced one before and was considering buying one from Sherril on-line which is on sale, a 14 inch Husqvarna Intenz...


Your question can't be answered as aked.
If your saw requires an Intenz 14" Bar it's Oregon pns 140SDET041 or 140GPET041. Part number 140SDEA041 if not Intenz.
Plug in your requirements here:

Once you get a part number it can easily be converted to other manufacturers numbers. HTH
