STIHL Round File
STIHL Files come specifically designed for each pitch of saw chain, with this particular round file suited for use with a . 325″ pitch chain. The file size is 4.8mm x 200mm.
The filing angle is then 25–35 degrees depending on the type of chain.
Chainsaw files are essential for sharpening the cutting edges of a chainsaw chain, which will enhance the performance and extend the life cycle of your equipment. Dull blades do not cut as well and can make your chainsaw eat up fuel a lot faster.
The 3/8″ Mini chainsaw chains are designed for smaller chainsaws. They are used by woodcutters in a high production environment. But you do not use these chains on chain saws with a higher than 45cc engine power.
If you have never filed your rakers before, you will likely notice a huge difference in how well your saw cuts. Luckily, this isn`t a process you need to repeat very often. In my experience, you only need to do it once every 10 sharpening sessions or so, but for you it may be more or less.

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!

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

I used my brand new Husqvarna chain saw for about 30 minutes then when I pinched the blade a little bit and it kicked back out at me, the chain stopped moving. I can’t even turn it by hand. The engine runs but you can tell it run wide open. and the gear that runs the chain doesn’t move either. Please help.
The chainbrake has actuated, you need to pull the hand gurd fully toward the rear of the machine until you hear the click of the brake unloading.
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.
