Is the feed belt still pushing the timber up against the bar as it’s cutting?

no, feed belt pushes timber to the length stop.  then belt stops.  bar is pulled down, chain starts, then cuts.  Belt does not start again untill I make it start.

Yes I know how it works used to have one . What I mean is once the timber has hit the stop is there tension in the feed belt so as you cut the timber is getting pushed forward ever so slightly from the tension in the belt . 

On the palax the stop retracts once the blade starts to come down meaning any tension in the belt disappears

Ahhh I get you, im not sure.  I am cutting longer & heavier lengths than I used to so its possible the extra weight is making the difference.  I'll check it out.  Thanks for the pointer
