Saw pulling left - not bar, chain or user

Have you checked that the cutters are all the same both sides with a gauge? even if new worth a check? I don't see how it can be anything other than bar, chain (usually chain) or maybe Stubby is correct and it's left handed wood.

If it cuts fine on new chain then turns left, you need to get a trump bar, they tend to pull to the right but swing to the left sometimes to make up for it randomly.


Have you dressed the old bar and checked the grove width? is the other bar you tested brand new or just one from another saw?
