Farmi-harvester bar

Recommended Posts

Presuming we are talking about the Igland Forest all in one instead of the Oregon bar and spacer?

 

If so I have tried it and reverted back to the original set up. The Igland bar is a touch thicker and seems more prone to jamming with twisty wood. Also seems soft and spent a lot of time dressing it. It still used the same gauge 0.58 1.5mm chain so not a true harvester bar

Ahh I see thanks for that! I new I had heard of a conversion but wasn’t sure it would be the right thing to do or not.

I should add I think others on here prefer the Igland bar. May depend on the quality of the wood you get. I do loads of twisty hedgerow timber which likes any excuse to jam up.

Others are using iggesund harvester bars but at £170 a pop they should be last a long long time!

Clearly my spelling is off but that's the one I tried but did not like

Another user on Facebook said they’d had a bad batch and replaced quite a few for people and they were working well now a guy up near me is very happy with his.
