Re: Bow Bars Good For Firewood?
« on: November 22, 2014, 06:57:33 am »
The things that usually happen is first that the bow bars that are 14" high across the front need a 60cc chainsaw or larger.

I don't know of any new bars being made except the little 8" high brush clearing bars used on the smaller saws?

So most of the available bars were originally made for the McCulluch, Homelite, and Poulan saws. If your chainsaw is different from this, you will likely have to change the old bar or get one that someone else changed? These old bars are still out there that were never used.

You will have to get a chain made up or make it yourself for the bar as it is unusual for one to be 84 DL.

More typical than not, the top front of your clutch cover will have to have a notch cut into it to clear the bar.

These bars are what is called hard nosed bars and there are no sprockets in them. So the chain will need to be run a little loose and your oiler will have to work well.

This is Just South of Chesterfield, VA.

We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
