Question about Husqvarna Chain Saw 20" Bar

Husquvarna 353 saw bar problems

I would like to use .325 .058 18" bar on my Husquvarna 353
The lighter bar and .325 .050 chains do not hold up the way I feel they should. I cut is fence lines, large trees and dirty areas. The lighter material does not match the other saws Husquvarna saws we have on hand.

I would like to switch to a rim and sprocket from the sproket that is on the saw now. Can I switch so it fits with the other stuff we keep on hand. like chains and rims and bars?

You do not need to switch the rim sprocket,.325 will be the same with .050 or .058.all you have to change is the bar to the .058..the .050 chain will no longer if the saw so you will have to replace it also.

Husqvarna 450e saw has an H-30 chain with a bar gap of ).050 inches. What is the width of the H-30 chain teeth that run in this bar ?


.325" pitch, .050 gauge. The cutter tooth width is a little wider at the top front, 0.075" and then narrows as it is sharpened down to 0.055"

What other chain can i use on a stihl 025


You need to know three things about your saw as to what chain will interchange....1. Pitch of the chain. 2. Guage of the guide bar. 3. Number of chain links.

Your little 025 Stihl wil probably have an .050 guage and a .325 pitch. The standard guages for small saws are .043, .050 with .058 and .063 being reserved typically for the larger displacement saws.

The pitch is the length of three links, divided by two and the number of links is kinda self-explanatory. (The 025 USUALLY is set up for the .325 pitch.)

Any chain that matches the three measurements for your respective saw should interchange. Hope this helped instead of adding to the confustion......

Sears 18 42cc chain saw blade keeps coming lose


I have found that the number one reason for a loose chain is from stretching, and that comes from heat or clearing small brush.

Heat being that it is not oiling properly and wears quicker, and the small brush answer (cutting lots of 1/2 in Buckthorn) tends to jerk the chain and manually stretches rather than a steady cut in a log which tends to be smoother.



With that said, yours might be something else. If I can ask a few question... When the saw was purchased, did you install the bar and chain? Second your level of experience - and is this your first saw. What I need to rule out is that the bar could be on wrong.



This saw was more than likely built by Poulan and it should have 2 nuts holding the bar. Does the bar loosen up? If the answer is no you might have a bar that is miss matched to the chain. What that means is that the chains "drivers", the tooth that is down in the bar could be a .050 and the bar could be a .063, hence the chain wobbles more that it should and might be more prone to jumping off.

Solution: Replace bar and chain and make sure they are a matched, lastly, always cut with a sharp chain.

Good luck,

kj

I have husquavarna chain saw s/n 95212H01984 with sticker that says 41 Air Injection. Need to buy chain and/or chain bar. Need to know the model number for this serial number. Can you provide


The saw is a 41, as standard it ran a 15" bar and chain, in the UK it ran a .325 pitch, however in the US, it ran a 3/8 pitch chain, as you should change the sprocket if fitting a new chain, i would put it on .325 if it is not already, the sprocket is part no. 530069342, the 15" chain is 501840664, and the guide bar is 508926164 these are .325 pitch 050 gauge and 64 drive links, this combination will cut much faster than the 3/8 low profile combination.

Husquvarna 460 rancher 20" bar all new including


The normal reason for a saw to cut to the left, or right is because the cutters have been sharpened more on side than the other, they are now longer on one side, this then sends the cut off to that side. Measure the cutter lenghts, take the correct file and shorten the longer cutters

Replacement chain and bar size


To purchase a new chain you need to know a few things, the pitch of the chain on your saw, .325/.375/.404, then you need to know the gauge of the chain 050/058/063 and finally the drive link count, this is the inner drive teeth, this will automatically give you the lenght, for example .325/050/64 drive links is a standard 15" chain for a Husqvarna semi pro saw.
This information should be etched into the guide bar, if not your local dealer should be able to tell you if you show him the chain

Automatic Oiler is not working on my Husquvarna 45


This usually means the oiler hole behind the bar & chain is plugged. you need to remove the bar & chain, clean the body of the chain saw in front of the sprocket/clutch assembly. look for a small hole & clean out using something like a toothpick & wd40 or penetrating oil.

I am having problems with my husky 142 with the .043 gauge bar


have been running saws for over 20 years and have found you can run pretty much any pitch chain on any saw (as long as the lengths matre up)

think about what you are going to be mostly cutting tho. if its softish wood get a chisel type chain.
have fun

HUSQVARNA MODEL 50 BAR AND CHAIN UPGRADE


I have a nearly worn out 42 cc Husquvarna that uses a 20 inch bar very successfully. With proper filing of the chain you should be able to run a 22 inch bar very well. Ensure that the roller nose on your new bar matches the pitch of the clutch sprocket that you are using at present. If not, have your chain saw shop change them so they match.

I would advise that you change the bar and sprocket to use a .375 chain as this will be easier to sharpen successfully than the .325 pitch chain you might be presently using.

I am six feet tall and short bars are murder on my back so this is why I use no shorter than 20 inch bars on my saws.
