Smaller chain fitting Stihl and husky saws.

Recommended Posts



I realise with ur standard 325 and 3/8s pitch chain ur Stihl and husky run on different gauges so need different chain reels/loops.


Was just wondering with ur smaller chain pitches can u run them on both stihl and husky saws?

I have a couple of smaller saws of 3/8's Pico chain and all 1.3mm guage ( 2 stihls, efco and solo climbing saw) but no huskies.


Thinking off dropping any I have on 325 down to 3/8's Pico or possibly even the new 325 Pico/husky X cut if I can get bars for Stihl saws.

Or can u get 3/8's Pico for huskies?

Few boys running that new 325 X cut on 572s and 20" bars and saw it really rips but a bugger to sharpen. Not tried it yet


Just so i can start making my own loops, at moment running 5 different types of chain. Just a pain really

Would be handy to have as many on the same chain type as possible.

I run the .325 X-cut on a 346, it’s a little ripper, use a vallorbe or a husky file for regular sharpening and it’s fine. Easier give it a tickle of a chain grinder if it gets damaged, takes too long to bring back with a file. I’m looking at going the other way, thinking of running the X-cut on my ms200 if I can find a bar to suit.
