its pretty easy to do with a file. first make sure you buy the right size file to fit right in the tooth. look closley at the chain and figure how to place the file on it. the point is to sharpen the side and top of the cutting part of the tooth .always file one way away from yourself. hold the file at an 45 DEGREE angle, and push forward. the trick is to push forward and up at the same time, and always go one direction. start on one side and mark your starting point with tape, go down one side then flip the saw and down the other. you dont have to push hard just enough to were you can see tiny metal fall off. lemme know if you have a problem

If your saw still has the original bar and chain, it was supplied with a .325" pitch chain and you'll need a 3/8" round file with a sharpening guide to properly sharpen it.
Here's a link to the Husqvarna site to the Rancher 455 models so you can select the correct manual to download, that matches your particular saw, based on the year of manufacture, etc.
There is some excellent information about maintaining your saw, along with a really good guide with step-by-step instructions for proper sharpening.
If you're having trouble figuring out the right manual for your saw, use the online Customer Support page and they'll reply.
Hope you find this Very Helpful - Best regards!

The blade(s) should have usually two bolts on them depending how many blades you have. Mine only has one blade held on with two bolts and that is only on the side that cuts the larger branches up to two inches in diameter and should be sharpened on a grinding wheel because it has a specific angle to it. The other side that chips smaller branches and twigs it a type of flailer, meaning pieces of metal just swinging around to mash up the sticks and do not need sharpening.
