Found this had happened today, have been using this 14'' inch bar on my 200t for under a year and I have found it to very good up until this afternoon.

 

So I have refitted my old Stihl bar.

I run mine cross a sanding disc and a belt sander no. Problems as yet.

In my opinion the bar looks a little abused. Robd is probably at the arb show so won't see this postfor a while

Sorry to see that's happened....

 

 

On the whole the Sugi bars last longer and are harder to file because they are hardened as much as possible.

 

 

But not a problem, send it back - and I'll send you a new bar under warranty.

Ha ha! Well I think it's hard to say what has happened with this bar just from x2 pics and so I think fair's fair and benefit of the doubt should be given.

 

 

The Sugi bars are hardened as much as possible (I use a battery grinder with flap disc to dress the bar BTW) but on all the Sugi bars I have been using there has only been slight burring - i.e. no channel into the bar.

 

 

But the harder the metal the more brittle - there will always be a compromise...
