Question about Husqvarna Chain Saw 20" Bar

Open Question

Pressure clutch on Husqvarna snow blower wore out in 8 hrs use.

The hard rubber pressure disk that drives the wheels on a brand new husquavarna 30 inch cut snowblower wore down almost all the way through ity in 8 hrs use. There was no visable sharp edges to ware thru. I never drove it into a snow bank and let the wheels continue to turn. I would feather the drive handle making it go slowly. They was using it incorrectly but didn't tell me how to drive into a snow bank to blow it. What could I have been doing wrong?

SOURCE: while cutting the chainsaw bogs down and stops

Check the air filter and the muffler if either are plugged up it will not run smooth. Carb hi and low screws are very sensitive so if you change them, only move them a little at a time.

Sounds like the clutch is still grabing. Easy solution is to apply the chain brake at idle to stop the chain turning. Try adjusting the L screw for a smoother idle.

The chainbrake has actuated, you need to pull the hand gurd fully toward the rear of the machine until you hear the click of the brake unloading.

Turn the switch to on, push the primer bolb about 8 times to get the fuel up to the carburetor, put the throttle about 1 quarter to a half way up, put the choke on closed and it sohould start. When it sputters open the choke slightly. Let it warm up and open the choke completely.

What causes the Clutch drum gear that drive the chain to go bad ? my chain eats a groove all the way through it aftr about 12 hrs of cutting I have replaced it 3 times now.


The chain you should be using should be a .325 pitch and not a 3/8.

Never over tighten the chain, it will wear and stretch with time, which is why you should regularly check the chain tension. To get it right you should be able to lift 2 drive links clear of the bar. The chain will naturally wear groves into the spur sprocket, there is no conversion to a rim spricket for this model. Rim sprockets allow the chain to move along the sprocket easier and takes the wear away form the clutch drum.

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.

My Husqvarna 10527 snowblower will not move forward. Makes an awefull noise like metal messing together.


Hi, hope I can help. This sounds like the friction drive disk might be at fault. To check this out you have to stand your blower up on the auger housing. You will see a removable plate at the bottom of the motor housing with 4 bolts on it. Remove the plate and all will be revealed to you. I think you will see a disk that has rubber around it that it worn out. It is at 90 degrees to the drive disk that turns by the drive pulley. If I am right, you probably have to replace this disk. Hope that is the problem. All the best and good luck. I will happily answer any other questions.

The snow blower will change gears but it wont go forward or in reverse


Check the belts coming off of the engine for wear or other damage. The transmission on most units like this use a rubber covered small wheel riding the face of a larger metal disc. A heavy spring holds these parts together and may be broken or dislodged. Look for a bottom cover plate between the wheels that can be removed. Also, check the action of the clutches which usually just tighten the drive belts. Hope this helps!

Snow blower 247.887900 is slipping our of gear any help


Check the bearing of the small drive wheel with rubber tire in the transmission--it may not be tracking the larger metal disc properly. Access to the transmission is usually through a bottom cover plate between the wheels. Hope this helps!
