Husqvarna carving bar

Husqvarna is listing a 10" and 12" carving bar that appears to be available in Europe and soon in the US.

It is a laminated bar and I assume has a welded hard nose tip.
Has anybody been using this bar had the tip fall off (as does the Stihl laminated bar)?

I believe it is intended for use with the Li series Husqvarna saws but will fit the 240e and 543XP (and a few others that are higher power than the AP chain is rated for.

Re: Husqvarna carving bar

I should have included the part numbers


587394460
HUS 10" CARVING BAR 1/4, .050

501844060
HUS 10" CARVING CHN 1/4, .050

I have also seen somebody on ebay.uk selling an MS170 with teh Husqvarna bar mounted. Comparing image profiles it appears that the mount holes would not line up properly and the bar would have to be shortened?

Re: Husqvarna carving bar

Not sure why you would go this route over say a Sugihara bar? Are the new Husky ones very very cheep?

Re: Husqvarna carving bar

Personally I would not buy a laminated bar.
I am just questioning whether anybody has used it and had any opinion.

Thanks
