Need true chain/bar size for my husqvarna Model 254 chainsaw

This saw runs sluggishly when in hard timber. Not sure the size bar/chain are original. What is recommended?

    Can you supply the model number, have you tried a full chisel type chain for hardwood?

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

Tip

Sharpening Chainsaw



Whether you learn to do it by hand or buy a saw sharpening attachment keeping a sharp chain is #1 in my book for keeping your saw running properly. The more pressure you have to exert to cut makes the saw run hotter, the bar wears out faster, the chain wears out faster and the sprocket wears out fast plus it's just plain harder on you to run the saw. In my timber cutting days I would file my chain every time I filled the saw with gas. Here is a helpful video for sharpening a saw. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkSYov5jcO0

When I use my chainsaw the chain alway's comes flying off - please advise


not know what kind of chainsaw a fix maybe hard to do but here goes
1. be sure chain is right size for bar as in bar groove for chain right size, sprocket gear right size and chain right length for bar.
2. be sure bar is adjusted for length of chain and tighten bolts to hold bar in place
3. always have sharp chain teeth
be careful if still happening -- may be better to buy new saw

Sadly, the 3816 is not designed for larger timber. 38cc is only for smaller limbs, As a general rule also the largest timber to cut should only be 2/3 of the length of the bar

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)

My poulan 18 inch chain saws blade turns but only cuts in about an inch and won't go any farther. It's two days old and worked fine cutting the first 2 trees down.


It sounds like the chain does want sharpening, it depends on what you are cutting ( type of timber, dirty timber,burnt timber etc ) as to how long before it needs sharpening, if the chain comes into contact with the ground below the tree it will lose its edge instantly.

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.
