Husqvarna saw chain
« on: January 02, 2018, 09:10:52 AM »
Hello all. Happy New Year.  I was limbing a maple tree with my echo 310 and a new husqvarna h35 052gx 14 inch chain. I was cutting limbs that were off the ground not hitting any dirt. The chain only lasted 10 minutes and it was shot. Wouldn't cut. I didn't cut into any debris. Anyone have a bad experience with husqvarna chain? Thanks Jerry

 From my experience, Husqvarna chain is a little softer than Stihl chain. But it sounds like you either have a bad chain or the wood you are cutting has problems. I can get by with a light touch-up between refueling in fairly clean wood with Husqvarna chain.

I find the Husqvarna chain is a bit harder (thicker chrome?) then its parent Oregon companies chain.

I remember when Stihl chain was first introduced in our logging camps in the early 1980's. Our piecework fallers complained it was too heavily built and took longer to touch up and sharpen.
The lighter built Oregon LP and LG was what everyone was used to.
But in time us fallers respected the durability of the Swiss made Stihl chain.

Two years ago my brother & I cut up 2 elm trees at the end of a farm field next to the buildings, there was so much grit in the bark that we had to sharpen chain every 3 or 4  blocks in 12'' to 16'' wood.
 I don't think there's anything wrong with your chain.

Yes a file is your chain's best friend.

Thanks guys. I will take a file to it. I did change it out to a Oregon s52. It's a green safety chain but it cut well for me and stayed sharp. The husky chain was a yellow chain. I had the same thing happen with a stihl rapid super yellow chain. Cut amazing when new but dulled quick. Went with the stihl green chain and was able to cut longer. Old guy, I know what your talking about with the elm. Cut some up a couple weeks ago and dryer to split it with a maul. No luck.
