Husqvarna Bar Data Page

Husqvarna offers a fairly broad selection of original guide bars for its chainsaws (US models number around 100). The bars are very good, but figuring out which ones fit your saw is not easy: the model naming is unclear and the claimed specs do not always seem consistent.

This page tabulates Husqvarna guide bars to help you navigate the lineup. I have assembled the data from scattered sources, so the lists may not be totally complete or error-free. But I believe these lists are the best ones available.

Here you find only lists; my article on Husqvarna bar sizes has more explanations on compatibility. You may also want to check my post on wider Oregon bar selection for Husqvarna saws. NEW: The compatible bars for most Husqvarna chainsaw models are listed in my Husqvarna saw profiles.

Available Husqvarna Bar Sizes

The table below lists how Husqvarna guide bars break down into categories by mount, pitch and gauge. The table also shows which lengths are available in each category and which saws would take them.

Detailed listings of original Husqvarna bars by mount, pitch and gauge can be found in tables further down. The tables are organized first by mount, then pitch and finally gauge.

I have tried to include a product link (affiliate) to Amazon whenever possible. (Workshoppist.com is an Amazon Associate. As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases.)

Small mount

1/4″ pitch

No Husqvarna saw model currently comes with a 1/4″ chain as standard, but the 1/4″ is an optional pitch for many smallest Husqvarna saws. Currently Husqvarna carries a single 1/4″ pitch bar model for carving applications:
