Is the Husqvarna brand chain any good?
« on: December 03, 2013, 05:56:55 pm »
  Hi I just went to my local saw shop (Husqvarna dealer) to get a chain to buck up some fire wood. He usually sells me Oregon chains. But this time he made a a husqvarna chain and said I'd like it. He put it in an old husqvarna chain box then scratched out a number and wrote LG on it.  for future reference if i wanted an other.
    I am asking the quality question because I buy husqvarna thinning saws for work and the husky blades that come on them seem to be soft and you cant keep an edge on them. If you hit a rock might as well throw it away. Just wondering if its lower quality then other brands

I have some Husky chain and it is no different than Oregon if you get the same version in each.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

Yep.  Oregon makes chain for Husqvarna.  This chart shows what Husqvarna branded chain corresponds with what Oregon chain.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Yep!

However, I read somewhere that Husky is setting up their own Chain factory in Norway, but I haven't seen any resulting Products yet......
