Husqvarna X-Cut Designing a better saw chain   http://www.husqvarna.com/uk/forest/get-started/from-professionals/husqvarna-x-cut-designing-a-better-chain/

https://youtu.be/ruWMOI70atA


For the first time, there are original Husqvarna saw chains, and they are made where it all once started – in Huskvarna, Sweden. Why, you might wonder. Well, the story actually starts at the end. Through all our research and development, making your output the highest possible has been the overarching goal.



For decades, Husqvarna has been one of the world’s most respected chainsaw brands. There is no simple explanation as to why that is. But a major key to the brand’s success has always been the constant focus on the user’s output. Anyone picking up a Husqvarna chainsaw should be able to count on getting the best possible returns.

“Manufacturing our own saw chains is not something we have embarked on just for fun, or because we felt like it,” Lead Engineer Hans-Åke Sundberg says, rather seriously. “Through all the years, we have never stopped improving our users’ experience and output. The cutting equipment plays an extremely important role in that.”

More than just high quality

The dream of an original Husqvarna saw chain has been with us for a long time,” Global Product Manager Mattias Karlsson adds. “Making it a reality, however, has taken a huge amount of planning, research and strategic thinking. There’s no trial and error in a Husqvarna product launch.”

Naturally, the Husqvarna saw chains had to meet the high quality of the Husqvarna chainsaws. But for most users, Husqvarna stands for more than just robustness and performance – it’s about trust.

“You must be able to trust that the machine you have invested in will give you the highest efficiency and the best results,” Karlsson continued. “Living up to those expectations requires considerable commitment from the manufacturer.”


At the heart of Husqvarna

The saw chain factory was built from scratch over the course of several years. Its strategic location, right beside the original chainsaw factory in Huskvarna, Sweden, underlines its importance – it is right at the heart of the brand.

Inside this advanced and modern saw chain factory, there is a rich variety of complex machinery, winding production lines and elaborate processes. Not one part of the saw chain comes ready from any supplier – it’s all made here, from raw steel to finished product. In addition to the factory, Husqvarna realized that they also had to build an adjacent little sawmill to be able to continuously test prototypes.

Developed backwards

“The single most important part of a logger’s every day is the cubic meter output,” said Sundberg. “We worked backwards from there. We identified the right product features, the right manufacturing, the right materials, the right competence, and the right mindset for a long-term venture into a new field.”

The X-Cut saw chain has been tested and fine-tuned for about two years now. Following classic Husqvarna procedures, a combination of lab tests and test runs in different environments has been crucial for perfecting its features, refining its design and ensuring its quality.

Ready for action

So, from the end to the beginning and back to the end, we have finally arrived. After years of planning, research, development, testing, collaboration with loggers, and some more testing, the first Husqvarna saw chain is ready to be mounted on your chainsaw. It’s ready for hard, uninterrupted work, ready to give you maximum efficiency and output – ready when you are.

The first impression of the 572XP is that the saw definitely will be a good inheritor to the legendary Husqvarna 372XP. This is with a reservation – it has to be used with the new full chisel saw chain, X-cut C85.
This is a newly developed chain from Husqvarna, in their own factory in, yep, Husqvarna, Sweden.
When we tested the chainsaw with the C85 X-cut chain we saw an increased cutting power and a smoother cut, just like with the first X-cut saw chain, Sp33G (0,325, 1,3mm).
C85 is a full chisel 3/8 saw chain with a 1,5mm gauge that comes pre-stretched and sharp from the factory.

@HolmenTree
Kevin, yes I like the looks of that chain . They have a winner there.
As I told the guys last night over on OPE they built a chain that will cut like a normal chain that's filed half ways back just ahead of the rear rivet, right out off the roll.
Whole cutter bit is moved rearward allowing a big gullet and a nice looking depth gauge. Rivets are flattened for the narrower kerf. I'd like to see the top of the chain.

Still retained the Vibe-Ban design they  had with the rebranded Oregon, but swapped out the LubriLink for the Stihl Oil O Matic. Still a little LubriLink design on the top corners of the side links without the cavity behind.
Making a living with a saw since age 16.
