Hey just a heads up, I just got off the phone with Cary Shepard. He is a Training Specialist for Husqvarna. He told me "As of the end of last year all Saws, the 235 to the 455 Rancher are now made in the U.S." This was to cut costs and make the company more competive. Now the 460 Rancher & 359 along with all the XP models are still going to be made in Sweden.

I have not noticed any differance in the new saws, but I have only ran them for short time peroids. (to prep them for the customers) But in the next few years will tell their quality. Just to let ya guys know.
