Can't Find 8 inch chain bar for Troy Bilt pole saw

I have a Troy Bilt, Model TBPS, Pole Chainsaw. It is an attachment to my Troy Bilt Pole Gas String Trimmer. The 8 inch chain bar is worn out, and Troy Bilt does not have the replacement part and could only give the names and phone numbers of part dealers to see if they might have one. No Luck. I have also searched the internet with no luck so far. The Bar has an Oregon Part Number: 080NATA318. I contacted Oregon today and they say it was an O.E.M. part that if they had it, they are not allowed to sell it retail due to contracts with Troy Bilt. Oregon's Technical Services is doing some checking to see what can be done, It might be that I will have to buy a whole new pole saw attachment and pitch the old one. I purchased the saw from Lowe's less than one year ago. Do you have any suggestions before I toss the $100.00 attachment into the trash. I can't use it with the worn out bar. The rest of the saw is fine and in good shape.

    Lowe's does not have the part. They only sell the complete pole saw unit.

    Thanks for the info. Oregon Chains also came up with a substitute 10 inch bar and chain instead of the 8 inch.

  • Dwain Pippen May 11, 2010

    What is the rest of the model number? There is more after the TBPS, like 41AJPS-C711 or 8 DL 41AJPS-C966. There is one that is discontinued, another still available.

Is the pull rope in the front or rear of engine.Thinking that the string is in the front,you must throttle housing and shaft from engine. remove starter housing. There sould be a screw holding the string and spring in place.

SOURCE: put string on tb425cs troy bilt trimmer

there are two ways to install the string..the cool way is without pulling the inner reel off the trimmer..just leave it in place..cut (2) approx.two arms length (thats spreading your arms out like airplane wings) of .095, align the arrow of the inner reel (it turns counter clock-wise..the arrow points outward) with the arrow on the outer spool (pointing inward)..holding the spool and reel together so the inner reel doesnt move, push one of the cut strings through the eyehole in the side of the outer spool, and it should come up to the right, through a slot next to a small round hole the diameter of the string..if it doesnt, it just missed the exit (as i call it)..pull out and try again..let about an inch come take that end of the string and push the line into the little round hole until it stops, which should be about a little more than 1/8 of an inch..hold it in while pulling the excess line outside the spool to keep it in do the same with the other string for the other side..once you have both lines in place, turn the inner reel counter clock-wise to draw in both lines through the eyeholes of the outer may or may not get all of the line to wind in..not a will still have enough to do what you need to do..just cut off the problem you may or may not have that i do most of the tyme is that it gets hard to turn the inner solution is to bump the top of the 'bump knob' with your fist, then pull both strings at the same tyme, then continue to turn..this method is quicker and easier than the second way of having the inner reel out and trying to wind both lines at the same tyme and trying to place the reel back in the spool..hope this works for you...

SOURCE: Troy Bilt Trimmer 75SS stalls at full throttle. new gas

Hello. Let me assist you. Since your trimmer runs but stalls at ful throttle it is telling you that there is a fuel problem. Not enough gas is getting through the carbeurator to satisfy the engines needs on full throttle. Most likely the carbeurator is gummed up. A common problem. Let's see if we can un gum it by getting a can or carbeurtor cleaner. Go to any auto parts store and talk to the clerk about your need.

SOURCE: line stuck inside head of troy-bilt trimmer

Take an awl or small diameter screw driver, same size or a bit smaller dia. than the line dia., and push it through the hole from the outside of the line head. This should push the piece of old line through the hole.
Recommendation: Leave at least one inch of line on the inside of the head, so you can grab it easily when you have to replace the line. I'll carry a pair of long nose pliers on me when I use my trimmer, so I can easily grab hold of the inside piece to pull it through.

Oil is out on the remington pole saw- what brand do I need?

unless the warning tag on the saw says otherwise, use standard bar/chain lube oil which is used on any chainsaw.

Pole chainsaw not working

No power could be a broken wire in the power cord, usually near the plug end. It could also be the switch, or the motor brushes. More rare is a broken wire in the motor or the saw case. Hope this helps!

I need a new 10 inch blade

A new chain can be fabricated by a local chainsaw shop. A new bar requires a model number to answer, a make couldn't hurt. Tag; you're it.

1 Answer


The chain has to be tensioned when replaced. You lift the chain away from the bar about halfway and the tangs that run in the bar should just almost come out of the groove. There is a screw that extends the bar near where it attaches near the sprocket. adjust that with the bar mounting nuts not quite tight till the chain is tensioned correctely.

Does my remington chain saw model #m15014AS go with the remington ext.pole model #rps96

No, the largest electric pole chain saw that can be attached to a pole with the Remington Pole Saw kit, is a 10" saw.

You can go to Master Distributors to find out more detailed info about your situation and speak with one of their reps.

Hope you found this very helpful, best regards!

How to attach chainsaw to pole

I am not sure what model number you have, but here is a link the owner's manual for model # 106821A ... On page 15 of this owner's manual explains how to attach the pole to the saw. Just make sure you are attaching the saw that is made to fit the pole or it may not work or be to heavy for the pole. I hope this helps.

Troy bilt pole saw will not lubricate any more

I assume you are talking about the oiler for the chain and if so it sounds as if the oiler is either blocked with chips or it is broke. You can go to and put the model and model number in and it will show a drawing of the saw and you can then fix the problem.
