Maximum bar size of 20" but would recommend 18", if it is running sluggish, check compression, if low replace the piston, if it is 135psi or more then make sure the airfilter is clean and then tune the carb and make sure you get good revs and throttle response throughout the rev range, use the typical carb adjustments from the owners manual from the Husky web site. This is a 5hp saw and is capable of cutting some big lumps of hardwood so no excuses on the power front

Husqvarna 51 file size


Several bar and chain combinations fit the 51 model saw. If your saw runs an H46 / H80 or H81 style chain you will need a 7/32" (5.5 mm)
If you are running a H21 style chain you will need 3/16" (4.8mm)

Cannot keep chain tight


Chain stretch is usually caused by inadiquate oil/ or incorrect oil to the chain, aim the tip of the bar at a clean peice of timber, you should see a good line of oil spray from the tip of the bar onto the timber.
Very dirty or dusty timber will also dry the oil out on the chain, and cause chain stretch.

452 c/saw doesnt cut well , revs are good, chain has been sharp, tree is medium hard timber.


This could be a problem with chain sharpening technique. Use of the correct size file, filing angles, and filing depth will all affect cutting performance. If the bar and chain are worn, you may be experiencing chain 'roll-over' which hinders the way the teeth cut into the wood. Try turning the bar over and tighten the chain a little more than usual, but still be able to turn it by hand. If the outer edges of the bar groove area have a 'flared-out surface, take a file to those edges (cut about 45 degrees) which may be catching on the 'kerf' of the cut. Make sure the teeth are cutting toward you on the bottom run. Hope this helps!
