Chain Saw 20″ Bar
How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
Stihl uses larger shoulders on the mount bolts, therefore, the bar opening is much larger than Husqvarna`s. Husqvarna mount bolts are further apart in spacing, so the slot for the bar is longer than Stihl`s. So, I`ll show you how to overcome those differences to easily mount a Stihl bar on a Husqvarna saw.
A type Y and S chain have no significant differences other than the letters` significance in the serial number of a chainsaw manufacturer. The Y or S in the serial number of a chainsaw chain signifies some feature of the chain. The chainsaw type is really determined by the way it cuts and is identified that way.
The most aggressive chainsaw chain is either a full chisel, or a chisel skip chain. A Full Chisel is an aggressive chain on chainsaw bars that are 24”or less. When cutting deep, long cuts with a bar longer than 24”, a Chisel Skip Chain is most efficient and aggressive.
Not every bar or chain is right for every saw. For example, larger chainsaw bars work best with more powerful saws because it takes more energy to drive a chain around a long bar. That`s why electric saws use bars 18″ and shorter. Similarly, chainsaw chains are measured to fit certain bars.
Stihl and Husqvarna have an equally excellent reputation for quality and durability, but the heavier construction and larger engines of Husqvarna chainsaws typically means they`re priced a bit higher than a Stihl chainsaw.
These bar adapters allows you to run 12mm Stihl mount chainsaw bars on many Husqvarna chainsaws. Great for those operators who run both brands of saws, because you only need one type of bar now, one with a 12mm Stihl mount.
Typically only professionals and experienced chainsaw users use full chisel chainsaw chains. They are typically used to cut through hardwood such as oak as their square-cornered cutting teeth are more geared up to power through the wood.
As mentioned previously, Husqvarna chainsaws typically have larger fuel tanks than Stihl chainsaws, so a Husqvarna saw is the right choice if you want to get through the job quickly without worrying about refueling, but a Stihl saw is better for smaller properties and users who don`t mind stopping to refill the tank.

Husqvarna 350 chain saw not getting fuel – Husqvarna Chain Saw 20" Bar
Hi you will need to put on its side and fish out the fuel line, if it is like strechey rubber when you hold it you will need to replace the fuel line and filter. If this doesnt work you might have to rekit the carb or replace it. replacing it will be better since you will be paying about as much if a shop does the rekit and it is only about a 50-50 chance the carb got clean. hope this helps
Husqvarna 235 is not oiling.Hole and groove on bar have been cleaned. The saw does drip oil with the bar off when running.All parts are clean but bar is not getting oil.Hope you can help,thanks.
With saw running and high speed hold saw close to a piece of wood and check for oiling. If still no oil, then use air pressure at hole in bar to clear.
No oil to bar. – Husqvarna "Chain Saw – 16" Bar, 3 Hp
You need the oiler gear . You have to remove the oiler and clean it out too. They tend to clog up then stop all together. You remove the clutch by turning it clockwise and using a thick plastic piston stopper that fits into the spark plug hole. Then remove the screws to the oiler.
I have only used my saw a handful of times and it has always done this since i bought it new at lowes. It wont lube the chain with oil and gets vry hot at the clutch it will go through a tank of gas to a half of a tank of bar oil. and like i said it has always been this way whats possibly wrong with the saw or did i buy a lemon

Husqvarna 460 rancher saw- chain brake is tripped and locked; cannot replace cover How do I reset the chain brake?
Pull back on the chain brake, this will release it.
Chain saw chain is loose
Loosen the side cover nuts, then turn the adjuster CW to bring the chain up to the lower edge of the bar, then check to see if the chain will move fairly easily by hand. Tighten the clamp nuts and recheck tension. If chain seems to get loose quickly again, it may not be sharpened correctly causing heat to build in the chain. You should see no reflection of light from the cutting edges if filed correctly and the saw should require very little pressure for it to cut rapidly. Hope this helps!
I have a husqvarna 257 with a 20inch bar and having oiling problems, is getting hardly any to no oil and have the oil adjuster screw the whole ways out, is the oil plunger bad?
If you take the bar off, and then run the saw, does oil come out of the saw? If it does, then the oil pump is likely working O.K.
If the oil comes out of the saw and does not make it onto the chain, it is possible that the oil exit slot on the saw, and the hole on the bar are not lining up properly. This happened on my Husqvarna 141 saw. The oil was coming out of the saw fine, but it never made it to the bar and chain. As a consequence the chain was always dry and very, very hot.
The other saws we use, always have plenty of oil on the chain. I think Husqvarna may have made a design flaw on some of their saws, and the exit point of the saw and the entry to the bar are not properly aligned. I wonder how many saws this affects.
Were can i get parts for spear and jackson chiansaw?
HI. YOU MUST HAVE A SAW SHOP NEAR YOU AND IF YOU DO THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THESE PARTS FOR YOU AND IF THEY CAN’T YOU SHOULDN’T GO BACK THERE BECAUSE ALL SAW SHOPS HAVE DEALER BOOKS ON DIFFERENT SAWS. HOPE IT HELPS. JIMBO
