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

Answer
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.
