  1 Question
Q: I have a Husqvarna 455 Rancher 2009. I want to buy new 2 new 20" bars. I know I want 3/8" pitch and .050 gauge, but I see several options from Husqvarna including the FT280-72 and the HT280-72. Where can I find details about the different Husqvarna options and make an informed decision of what to buy? I have similar questions wrt the different models of compatible chains. Thank you, Mike
by Mike Breckon from Maryland on May 28, 2015

A: Mike,

We carry the FT280-72 Husqvarna 20" (3/8" Pitch) .050 Gauge Guide Bar. This is a laminated bar consisting of two pieces laminated together sandwiching a chain sprocket in the tip of the bar. This would be the choice for most people with medium duty usage. When the sprocket fails the bar gets replaced.

The HT280-72 is a heavier duty one piece bar with a replaceable tip which contains the sprocket. This is great for professional use especially in rough conditions such as swamp logging where the saw bar spends considerable time under water. Once the sprocket in the tip fails you may keep the bar and just switch out the tip. You will pay double but the bar has a longer life than a laminated bar.

Once you have the right chain pitch, gauge and link count there are many other combinations that often come down to personal preference. You may use the Oregon bar and chain finder at the link below.

Husky 455 Gets A Breather....
New chain and bar for old 455 allows it to run less to accomplish the same work. It sure makes my life easier, too.
I've been busy cleaning up after Asplundh tree company came through cleaning up the power line right-of-way.

Waited Too Long To Get A New One.
Got the saw stuck dropping a tree, so hooked on with chain and pulled with the Kubota, tree went sideways and bent the tip of the bar.

Took me a while to figure out why I kept getting it bound up when cutting. New bar and new chain is like a new saw... Now I can just hold the trigger handle and it cuts straight through.. Thanks.

Old Bar Relief!
For months I cut with a badly worn short bar on my saw. It was getting harder and harder to cut straight. Finally I broke down and ordered a clean new bar. Bliss! The price was right and I love Husqvarna gear.

I would rather get a OEM bar than an Oregon. I got a lot of trouble-free work out of the original Husky bar, and I wanted more of that. Delivery was quick, and the process was smooth, even with a PayPal glitch.

Extends Possibilities Of My 460 Rancher
I run a 24 ich bar on my 460 Rancher here from Chain Saws Direct. This bar is too long for some jobs and I change to this shorter ones. Fits perfect.

I just adjust the oil pump on the saw from position 3 to 2 to adjust the oil flow. Then I check the oil flow by holding the bar tip against something bright. When I see the oil on the bright all is good.

The bar is very solid and sturdy (Made in Norway).

This bar requires a 72 drive link chain, for example the H80-72 from Husqvarna. This... more
