That there is a Sandvik bar. I used them logging back in the early 1980s. Weird bar , they were laminated but still had a replaceable nose. That design of nose proved to have a weak bar/nose joint.

OOPS, my mistake. I took a closer look at the video and I see the bar is a Tsumura.

You might like this new 25% lighter bar ST, Mar 16 2011, Husqvarna TechLite. 


The new lightweight guide bar from Husqvarna utilises aerospace technology. This has resulted in a more balanced and easier-to-handle chainsaw. The TechLite™ bar is up to 25 percent lighter than regular guide bars, without compromising the superb rigidity.

By using new materials and a new construction technique borrowed from aerospace, Husqvarna has managed to lower the guide bar weight by 25 percent compared to regular guide bars. TechLite™ is a true state-of-the-art innovation which significantly reduces strain on the operator’s body and enhances ergonomic efficiency.

The unique features specific for TechLite™ include a laminated guide bar with an aluminium centre and a sword constructed in layers of steel, aluminium and steel (S-A-S). A laminated guide bar is highly uncommon in sizes 20" and over. The TechLite™ bars come in lengths of 20" and 28" and fits all models over 60 cc.

The Husqvarna TechLite™guide bar is available in shops on the XX of XX

The Tech-Lites are in the catalog here, but I haven't seen one. Some guys on the AS have used them for a while, but they aren't common yet.....

Btw, they are made in Norway at a Husky owned factory - not by Oregon. ;)

Yep. That gasket was on the wrong side, blocking the impulse hole in the carb. Thanks for the IPL BTW ;D
