Sorry about the photo quality.  I was taking a pic with my phone with one hand of a .magazine held in the other.  I did try to notify husky though, just in case they wanted to send .e a prize ;)

Flipping the image will not change the direction of the chain in relation to the body of the saw. I don't care if you flip the picture upside down, that chain is still on backwards.

We used to turn customer's chain loops inside out sometimes.   Usually good for a laugh or two.

My brother has one just like it, except chain on right way, and I have put several hours on it.
A little high priced but one heck of a saw!!    ;D

I had a customer in the mill yard one day, and he wanted me to cut some salvaged beams into flooring. I scanned the beams an one of them had a big nail or bolt in the end. He said he brought his chain saw and he had just had it's "blade" sharpened.
He said he'd put on the sharp "blade" and cut off the end of the timber so I could slice it up for him.
I watched him from across the yard and there was a big cloud of blue smoke coming of his chain saw as he was attempting to cut off this timber.
I walked over and he told me he didn't understand why it was smoking so much as he just had his "blade" sharpened.
I asked him "would you get mad at me if I told him that he had put it on backwards?"
He said: "no."
I said: "you put it on backwards."

Shortly thereafter it was cutting correctly again.

Thinking that the Europeans drive on the same side of the road as we do in N.America.  ;)

Except for the Brits but they are off by themselves on an island and do things different. :D I once had a customer come in complaining about his new chain. I said I don't want to insult you but do you realize the chain is on backwards. Well, yeah but I am cutting with the top of the bar. ::) I hope he didn't kill himself.

I once worked on a crew, and this was the first "test" they gave to greenhorns, the boss fits the bar with the chain on backwards, and if you dont spot that right away, you dont get on the crew, and just because its 7am and you missed a coffee its NO EXCUSE ... be warned !
