How are your Sugihara bars holding up?

Recommended Posts

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.

 

Only just seen this rob. I think that's the main cause of my trouble, I'll have to make I set the bar in absolutely spot on. Haven't had the mill out since I posted on here so haven't had the chance for a vid yet.

60" pah! Now you're showing off:D

I'll do my best Matt but most days I struggle to remember my own name and even that's when the it's been shouted at me a lot!!

 

 

There'll be a few threads up when they are here.

Picked up my 550xpg today, so the bar you sold me is finally about to see some use.

A bit of ignominious firewood ringing, but a good way to run the beast in.

Nice Jim - looks very smart! :biggrin: Almost a shame to use it!

 

 

Be interesting to see how it copes with the 550's power.

It came off the saw the next night, Rob. It's a 15" bar and its too long for fir and birch snedding work. Plenty of oomph for that size of bar, but once you use a 13" bar for snedding I don't think you look back. Will order a 13" Sugihara from you tonight or tomorrow.

Doh! re-read above.

 

Rob, as Matt said. Please could you put me down for a 13" Sugihara bar for my 550XPG if that's on your order list.

 

cheers,

 

Jim

Okey Dokey - the latest batch of Sugihara bars are here!

 

 

 

These are all pro versions so solid single piece Stihl with replaceable sprocket nose, have got a lightweight, smaller tip 14" version for the 200T.... next order will have some 12" ones as well...

 

 

I will be doing lots of threads over the next few days.... I would expect the 13", 15" and 18" Husky bars for 346 and similar to sell fast as well as these 14" ones for 200T.... do not hang about as lead time is 4 months (next order will be 1st April so will not get next lot until 1st August.

 

 

 

:biggrin:

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!

 

same on its 6th or 7th chain, very little ware, only one fault there is no way oregan flat files will dress the bar:lol: has to be the cordless when i get home:thumbup1:
