Thanks for sharing. Very good read. I can certainly agree with getting older and seeing that all important corner. Last chain I sent to Mike had quite a few beaks I never even saw. He touched them up and retested with substantially better results. Since then I use these and now I'm getting better results...

That was a slick chain you sent. Just needed a few things smoothed. I would like to try the new Husky chain myself. Oregon dealer on Facebook was talking about their new chain as well.

I know its apples and oranges, but Would have been interesting to see how the New husky X cut would have compared... Have any of you fellas had a chance to get your hands on any of this new husky chain and tested yet?

The c-85? No. There was a guy on fhc claiming he had it. But he wouldn't post pics.

I'm a member of the English version site of Skog Forum. But hardly any activity or response on the site.....but good pics of the new Husqvarna chains versus the old H chain.
All I can see is bigger gullet, cutter bit more rearward, higher inside side plate, flattened rivets, Stihl style oil o Matic DL.
And what appears a more pronounced  Oregon style Vibe-Ban with bigger difference in material under the cutter's toe compared to the heel.
But like I said before this new chain is setup new out of the box like a standard chain filed about 1/3 to 1/2 ways back.
I can at least envision that this made in Scandinavia chain should have some high quality metallurgy with excellent edge holding capabilities.

I also notice the new Husqvarna chain's drive link tops are more flat like the early LG/LP, maybe improve chip flow?

Hard to say for certain judging only from the outside, but that C-85 looks an awful lot like Oregon X grind design.


I'm going to have check that thread out too. Haven't been on here for a while. Thanks for posting the links Kevin.

Is it just me or do I see this new style X chain 20LPX or what ever it's called has a inverted concave sideplate and depth gauge?
If that's the case then as long as the top plate is far enough out for the rivets to clear in the wood kerf, it should cut well.
New Husqvarna chain's cutter bit is further back from the depth gauge.
