    Husky 455 Rancher, refurbished for $300, retails for $480, I have a feeling its a 460 as the bother model/serial tags say 460 and only the sticker says 455.

    I sold my 18" echo last year to my step dad and this thing has a ton more power.

    Husky 345FR brushcutter, $750. I'm extremely impressed with this thing, the saw will take down a 2" tree like its nothing. I have a ton of buck-thorn that i want to clear out and plant grass, and this is the tool for the job. It came with the saw blade, tri blade and a normal string trimmer.

    Both tools start pretty easy with the decompression button, the brushcutter comes with a nice harness to save your back.

    I have the 465 rancher w/24" bar.
    It's decent though I'm not real impressed by the stock chain and the dogs are wimpy as hell.
    I'll be swapping out my chain for an Oregon brand chain for the next season.

    They are pretty good saws, how's the rest of the property coming? last time I saw pictures (which was probably ages ago now) you had a hell of a lot of projects going on!

    If you're like me, when one project is done, you'll be scheming up the next one. The work never goes away.

    I picked up this bad boy yesterday from my neighbor, $2,000. it's a 93 and the motor has been replaced.

    He also threw in his skid loader trailer for free. he didn't want to sell his trailer but he didn't want to keep it. so for the time being its going to stay in my possession and he'll use it if he needs.

    She's a runner but needs a new drive motor on the right side. 1000$, I tore it out last night, haha. Came with a bucket, forks and a snow plow attachment.

    What does that big machine do?

    Nevermind I just googled it. Looks like you can put all sorts of attachments on it and it can practically do anything. Thats pretty awesome.
