Re: Bow Bars Good For Firewood?
« on: November 22, 2014, 07:07:24 am »
These bow bars that are all rebuilt or unused and set up for your late model chainsaw will likely cost more than $100 dollars without the chain. I saw some for $225.

The $60 bar will likely need some work?

The bars have different groove widths. They are .050", .058", or .063". You will need the correct gauge chain for your bar.

The only correlation of the clutch sprocket with respect to the bow type bar is that the pitch of the sprocket must match the pitch of your chain. In other words if you are running regular 3/8" pitch chain, your sprocket or rim on your clutch must also be 3/8".

The guards in the picture are made of 16 gauge aluminum and are painted silver for some unknown reason? They come in different gauge thicknesses and are manufactured as an extruded 10' or 20' length of aluminum that is cut off to the proper length.
