Question about Husqvarna Chain Saw 20" Bar

1 Answer

I have a Husky 445 Rancher that once started the blade spins fine, but once the blade makes contact with the wood the blade stops spinning. Also the blade tension seems to slip and the blade becomes sloppy. Please help

I have installed a new blade in my circular saw R32021 and the blade stalls even before I begin to cut wood


by stalling do you mean that the blade stops spinning or the motor stops turning
if the blade stops spinning then the mounting bolt for the blade is not tight enough
if the motor stops spinning , junk it and get a new unit

Circular saw spinning but not cutting wood


Does the blade actually stop when you try to cut or does it spin but not cut. If it is stopping, and the motor is still running then I am afraid you have stripped gears and will need anew armature and spindle gear (sometimes complete with spindle, sometimes a press fit with a woodruff key to locate it). If the motor is stalling then it would suggest that the field coil is faulty, but you would notice excessive sparking from one brush if this was the case. if you get major sparking from both brushes then the armature is probably faulty, or if you are lucky it could just be brushes wearing low and not making a constant contact.
If the blade is spinning and not slowing when you try to cut I would think it is either blunt or mounted the wrong way round.

I cannot loosen the bolt that holds the blade on my 7 1/4 Makita circular saw. How do I make the blade stop spinning to loosen it?


they make a blade holder now but usually if you hold the blade against a wood block real tight you can loosen the bold / screw . most warn against over tightening them

Chain spins when not cutting


Sounds like a clutch issue but if the chain is spinning once you start the unit you'll need to do some adjusting to your carb.

Cutting stair stringers with circular saw


the start of the cut is starting to close up and pinch the back of the blade once you have gone past centre,if the blade is past the starting edge you can tap a small wedge into the start of the cut and that will stop it .I AM AN EXP SAW PERSON TO PROVE IT I ONLY HAVE A THUMB, AND ONE REATTATCHED FINGER ON ONE HAND .that happened on a bench saw only the back of the saw blade lifts the wood and for some reason i pushed it back down,DUMB ..Be careful and think before you do , But a wedge will solve your problem
