How are your Sugihara bars holding up?

Recommended Posts

Not when cutting, just when warming up, running the chain.

 

But yes it's from the back of the bar. Maybe the bar is tapered a little too small before it hits the sprocket? Just thinking out loud...

 

 

Hmmm... dunno - if you can post a vid up that would be the best way to ID what's happening?.... does it happen with other chains or just the Granberg?

No, just the Granberg. I've never known it with any other saw/bar/chain, just this combination of sugi/Granberg.

 

I'll try to get a vid tomorrow if I get the chance.

 

Cheers rob

Got the standard sprocket one - running beautifully on the ms341 Rob. Keeping its paint well too which is nice! Might be the smoooothness of my method though ha!

Thinking about it, it's usually when horizontal and in the mill so maybe caused by flex in the bar?

 

 

Just to add to this Dan - I had this happen the other day using the 090... chain was really bouncing around on the back of the bar but halfway down seemed to be fine...

 

 

Turns out that when I had the bar clamped I had pinched a slight bend into bar... released the nose clamp and the bar straightened... re tightened the nose clamp and the chain was fine....

 

It was easy to see on the 60" bar but this could have been the cause of the problem.

RobD - do you supply a 15" .325" for a husky 550xp? My original husky bar is nearly ready for the scrap bin!

Running a 20" on my 576XPG and a 15" on my 560XPG, I will never buy a Husqvarna bar again. The Sugihara bars so far are holding up really well, they seem to be a bit stiffer that the Husky bars without a noticeable change in weight or balance.

 

Just out of interest how do they weigh in against the manufacturers bars??

It's a very good point... I did this weigh chart....

took ruddy ages and nobody really looks at it but it was before I had the Sugi bars...

 

 

Quite unique but a lot of work... will try and re do with Sugi bars but I did weigh a couple... they are a little heavier I think and yet when you use them feel lighter!
