After using anew chaini hit dirt. isharpenit withadifferntanglewillthat make a differencein cutting.


sure will , most saws have different angle cuts to teeth on blade this "angle" needs to be maintained as the "rake" teeth that are behind the cut teeth are set to provide a good way to wipe out cut debris (cut,rake,cut,etc.) this is how chain cuts thru wood , if one changes the cut angle on teeth the rake teeth might not do there job correct and saw bogs and "files" thru wood rather than chips thru wood ,takes longer ,more fuel, more effort , a look at saw cuttings tells the tale , more tiny file sawdust = dull chain --- large Chips and less dust = sharp chain

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!

I do not know how to replace the chain on a husquavarna 450e chain saw and no one is willing to tell me how to do it.


Before replacing a chain saw chain you must ensure that you disconnect the sparkplug lead. Remove the chain saw cover which is located at the motor end using the tool that came with it. A spanner socket remove the 2 nuts that are the same size and that will loosen the chain arm and chain itself. Note the direction of the chain teeth as the new chain must go back in the correct manner . Now reverse the installation the same way you remove it. After replacing the chain you need to tension the blade allow about a 5 mm slack and there is a tension screw located to the side of the cover you removed. Again it's best to refer to a authorized dealer if unsure.

Will not cut blade stops with very little pressure when cutting. chain is engaged correctly on sprocket


Check the chain is travelling in the right direction, the teeth are sharp and there isn't too much tension on the chain restricting its movement.

Replacement chain and bar size


To purchase a new chain you need to know a few things, the pitch of the chain on your saw, .325/.375/.404, then you need to know the gauge of the chain 050/058/063 and finally the drive link count, this is the inner drive teeth, this will automatically give you the lenght, for example .325/050/64 drive links is a standard 15" chain for a Husqvarna semi pro saw.
This information should be etched into the guide bar, if not your local dealer should be able to tell you if you show him the chain

You will have to remove the cover on the side the chain bar goes into. There should be one or two nuts holding the cover on the side. The is also a chain tension adjuster you may have to loosen to put it back on. Make note of the direction of the teeth on the chain. It is an directional chain. The tension adjuster is usually a flat head screw on the front side right beside the chain bar.

Unless it is a really old saw, manuals are available from most manufacturers for free download. See if you can locate a brand name and model number.

c2d7ab8.gif Chain adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They don't need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system. HTH

I am trying to put the chain on my poulan saw and the teeth wont go in the groove on the bar


the chain on these saws will only go in one direction ~ when you re-move the sheild to fit the chain a small diagram will be shown to what direction is required.
if this is not the problem and the teeth won't fit any where on bar then check for damage to bar or dirt stuck in it.clean out with soapy water and use spay oil to prevent rust.

Need to change chain


Go buy a chain that is the right size. As you are holding the saw on the left you will one or probably two nuts on a screw. Remove them and then remove the cover over the sprocket and chain. Remove the old chain and install a new one. Make sure the teeth are in the same direction as the old chain!!! Pull on the bar until the chain is tight. Reinstall the cover and tighten the nuts back up. You are good to go.

Chain saw cuts at an angle


I have seen this problem of a chain saw cutting at an angle brought up again and again on forums, and result in a variety of answers about sharpening the chain, or replacing the bar and/or chain. In a number of these requests for solutions, none of the advice has solved the problem. I have used chain saws for about 45 years now, and there is a condition that some chains develop with the pitch of the teeth or the guides...or both...that will cause them to cut to the left or right at an angle (usually left). While I have not figured out what causes this, I have solved the problem of correcting it. First, turn the nose of your bar and chain toward you on a bench, look down it like sighting a gun and take a look at each tooth and guide. If the saw is cutting left, the teeth or the guides (or both) on the left (while you are looking down the bar from its tip) will be pitched differently than the teeth and/or guides on the right. The pitch of those teeth or guides (those little ears that stick up about on-fourth inch in front of each tooth) will be: 1) too much in line with each other, or 2) the teeth or guides will be less pitched than the teeth or guides on the right side of the chain. Solution: take a large pair of lineman's pliers or similar pliers and pitch those teeth and guides to match those on the right side of the chain. Also, make sure the curved part of your chain teeth peek out around the outside edge of those guides. If the guides are directly in line with your teeth, they will hinder cutting by the teeth. You can do this with the chain on the saw if you don't have too much slack between the bar and the chain. Last, make sure that the chain guides are not as tall or taller than your teeth. If they are, you will need to file them down a little (with a flat file) until the teeth are slightly longer than the guides. Afterward, make sure the teeth on both sides are equally sharp, and go cut a straight cut! TennesseeBob
