What am I missing please?

Recommended Posts

I came across this when I first bought the new saw, just after they launched the chain. I don’t understand why husqvarna would develop a new chain, spending millions in the process. Now i am unsble to clip the roller over the tie strap. Ive used that roller for years.  Fudging it when its new, free hand is one thing but i cant be messing about like this when the chain needs some really heavy sharpening down after hitting an absorbed foreign body in the cut. Or, wait for it, do i have to buy something else?

Shit file guide anyway . When the rollers ware down it drops the file too low . Use an Oregon plate type .

I actually like them. Replace them before the rollers get too bad. But thats just me.

I no longer use a guide unless I’ve proper mullered the chain, really like the x cut chain stays sharp for a good while and easy to sharpen.
Initially had a problem about halfway through chain with it not cutting quick: the depth gauges stick out to the side a touch so they sit proud as the cutters get shorter, I found you need to take a bit off side as well as top, hope that makes sense?
