I have a huscavarna 435 chainsaw and after running a few minutes the chain locks up


You may have the chain tensioner set a little too tight.

Additional things to check:
  • The sprocket on the end of the guide bar is greased, and turning smoothly.
  • The chain brake is working correctly (not dragging or only partially disengaging).
  • The guide bar is straight, not bent or twisted, burr free, and the groove the chain travels in hasn't been squeezed together.
  • The chain tension is set correctly.
  • The chain oiler is functioning correctly (and you have a sufficient amount and correct type of bar oil).
  • Chain is in good condition, and the correct one for the saw. Make sure all of the links flex smoothly.
  • Chain is sharp. A dull chain will put more pressure on the guide bar because the cutting teeth aren't digging into the wood efficiently (and usually a person pushes harder on the saw when the chain is getting dull).

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.

Ihave a Husquvarna chainsaw I just sharpened but when it cuts into the log it curves to the right and jams halfway through the log.


first flip the bar over that will show if the bar is bent if still cuts wrong in the same direction then the bar is good and you didn't sharpen the chain the right way

The chain needs sharpened or replaced. You can purchase the tools from any hardware store, and sharpen the chain yourself in about 15 minutes. Don't worry, your saw is just fine!

When I cut,the kerf curves to the right.I am thinking the bar is worn out allowing the chain to move or the sharpen is lop sided.What do you think?


While it is possible that the bar is contributing to this problem, the usual cause is uneven sharpening of the chain iteself. The side toward which the chain moves is the sharper side and is cutting moredeeply than the other. The easiest way to prove this is to replace the chain with a new one. If the bar is the problem, the new chain will behave the same way.

Chainsaw not cutting straight


Hi,
The problem is that the chain is dull on one side...you hit something on one side of the chain and dulled the teeth on that side and now it tries to cut in a circle....
Either get a new chain...sharpen the chain your self... this is tricky if you have never done it before...or have a pro sharpen the chain...

I have a husqvarna 350 chainsaw, it wont cut straight throuh a log without cutting at an angle and getting jamed. what is the problem , any sharpening tips


THE ONLY THING THAT CAUSES A SAW TO CUT ON A CURVE IS THE CHAIN IS SHARPER ON ONE SIDE THEN THE OTHER AND IT PULLS THE SAW CHAIN TO ONE SIDE CAUSING THIS PROBLEM.
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE SAW, IF YOU USE A FILE TRY A FILE GUIDE THEY WORK GREAT

When cutting, as it progresses, the cut curves to the rught automatically.


Sharpening a chainsaw is an art. I wokred in the logging industry for 20 years before I was shown how to truly sharpen one well!

It appears that your problem has one of two causes.

1. Sorry, but you may not have filed the chain correctly, a common problem for newbies and some veterans. Ensure that all cutters are filed at the same angle (save your old chain and buy a new one for a quick solution). The file should be worked from the back of the tooth to the point ONLY. The file should be stroked at 90 degrees to the bar and parallel to the line that is inscribed on the tooth (if a line does in fact exist). Each raker should also be the same height - get a raker gauge from your chainsaw shop. If the rakers on one side of the chain are lower than the other side and/or the cutters are filed at significantly different angles on one side than the other the saw will cut in a curve.

If you look at the cutter from the side each one will show a quarter moon filing "circle" and both sides of the chain MUST be equal or close to equal. If one side has a moon and the other does not the saw will cut in a curve so severly it will bind in the cut.

2. A worn bar that is higher on one side of the chain groove than the other will also cause problems - a new bar is the only long term solution for this. The unequal height is caused by incorrect filing of the chain and long term use of the bar with this condition.

If the bar is in good condition and the rakers and cutters are filed properly you will not have to push on the saw to make it cut - it will pull itself through the wood. Indeed, before you buy a bigger saw to cut faster you should ensure correct filing - you may amaze yourself and your buddies!

I am a Certified Faller in the Province of British Columbia, Canada if you are wondering about my credentials.

Good Luck and Safe Cutting!
