    Hello all,

    I aquired from a clearance sale a few bars that have me wondering what they may fit? They have on them 3/8P 0.63G 68DL and are 20” Bars. Where I’m confused is there is no 3/8low pro chain in 063 gauge, and I’ve not seen a husky which runs 063 chain, also the bar Mount is for an 8mm stud. Much like a D176 Mount.

    I can upload pics which is more than likely a good idea, but the spec I’ve given pretty much describe these bars.

    KXAU20-68-6311p

    Small mount saw running big chain??

    Cheers Eddie

    This kind of sounds like it could be related to a small mount Dolmar bar i had once that was 3/8s 64dl 18". Usually 68dl is found on husky bars both small and large mount.

    Welcome to OPE!

    Some 'small Husky mount' saws might run full sized 3/8 chain; e.g the Jonsered version of the 562. Some people like .063 gauge chain and might want a non-standard bar that accommodates that.

    'P' ('picco') is a STIHL only name. Might mean something else on those bars. If you have some 3/8 low profile, and full sized 3/8 chain, you can test fit them into the nose sprocket to see which fits better.

    Also, check out the attached Oregon bar mount pattern guide (PDF might be easier to read).

    I'm guessing the "P" is for pitch, just like the "G" is for gauge. Nothing to do with picco

    That’s how the Sugi nose sprockets are. 3/8P for 3/8 pitch.

    Thx for the reply’s and the welcome, been using saws since a kid as I grew up in a sawmilling town, been blown away by the knowledge on this site! Learning heaps. I own a few saws, 090 which is a pig of a thing really, 661 which is good but my favourite is a little Ms 180, an angry saw that packs a punch and will try and take on too much!

    I’m thinking the bars are for a cheap Chinese saw, got about 10-15 of them so might find a use for them one day?!

    Cheers for the helpful reply’s, look forward to learning more, Eddie
