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

I would find a lawn and garden shop that repairs chainsaws. Take your saw there and they should be able to get you the correct file.

I have husky 435 and want to put a 14" bar on the

Most all brands of chain saws will except one size smaller and one size bigger than what came with the saw. You just have to make sure the bolt holes and the hole for the adjustment pin match the origional bar.

I have a husky 235 (e = ?) & it has been very troublesome for me. My little 3000 Echo saw i purchased in 1995 (& have had refurbished once since then) outshines the husky reliability-wise. On the...

The oiling on this model has been an issue for a long time, the first and main problem was distortion of the bar pad due to heat from the muffler, and the ommision of a metal strengthener in the pad itself, what happens then is as the bar nuts are tightened, the bolts try to pull throught the bar pad, this creates a bulge around the bar bolt and causes the delivery tube to collapse, there was a later crankcase with steel inserts around the bar bolts to prevent this, and an updated delivery tube, you can tell when this has happened as the oil drips onto your shoes rather than going onto the chain, let me know it you need any more advice or i have not explained this very well, what has the dealer said about the oiling problem?

I HAVE A 235 16"

A Husky 445 has a compression release (about the same bar length) which gets around this difficulty. We have a 435 Husky that has the same problem--your arm needs to be in pretty good shape to pull them through. We have found that the saw needs only one pull with the choke full on to be able to start on the second or third pull. Back the choke off about half to make the following pulls. Other than replace the saw, not much help I'm afraid.

Hi there, I got the Husky 240e, with only ~4h of running. my problem is that the chainsaw starts smoothly but when pressing the throttle it is suffocates and turned off. When gently squeezing the...

The symptoms indicate lean running, so check the fuel filter for plugging and the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Husky seems be having troubles with our ethanol treated fuel and may require some warranty attention. We have a year old 435 Husky that would not start after about 3 days of excellent running--warranty replaced the carburetor which seems to have us working well now. Good luck!

What is the longest bar i can go on my 455 rancher saw ?

Available power and the amount of oil may both be a limiting factors. Your oiler has a 3 position adjustment (as do most intermediate level Huskies) with 20" being the longest recommended. My 359 is virtually the same and I run a 24" Carlton bar on mine with no problem. If you opt for a longer bar let the saw determine cutting speed. Come on over, my bar and chain will fit your saw, try it before you buy it. If you have an acquaintance with a 24" small mount Husky bar that is probably a good idea. I would likely not recommend a 24" bar if regularly cutting Oak or a hard wood, I do a lot of Fir.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
Thank You for using FixYa.

Husqvarna 372 xp gas tank not venting has a new gas cap did not work

I looked at a 2007 IPL, your saw has a separate fuel tank vent. Husky is terrible about providing a nomenclature and you may need help from your local Husky dealer to identify components.
Find your "Illustrated parts lists" here:
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – for use with IPL
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
