Recession Spending on Chainsaw Parts

Daytona Beach, FL There may be some indication that there is a growing trend of recession spending on chainsaw parts and other outdoor power equipment parts. At HLSupply, revenue in the second quarter of 2022 may indicate that the pending recession (or is it already current?) might indicate that hard working folks are spending on parts to repair their yard and tree machines instead of buying new equipment when there are breakages or deficiencies. In April and May, outdoor power equipment parts sales at HLSupply were closer, though still far below the same months of 2021. However, in these first 6 days of June, sales of chainsaw parts et cetera are almost equal to the first six days of June 2021. Are people being more cost conscious with their outdoor power equipment expenses due to the recession? Is the everyday person watching expenses of all other things similarly due to the recession? It seems that everything points to the decision to buy chainsaw parts and fix your equipment is wiser than buying new. Why? Inflation is too high now, and on top of that there are still factors effecting prices and delivery times due to COVID, while equipment manufacturers are raising their new equipment prices frequently and yet HLSupply prices of chainsaw parts and other parts are mostly the same. Inflation is way up with great effect on the cost of living, gas prices are up a lot, and we are still in a housing bubble. Will that bubble POP soon too? Sadly, the guesstimates are "YES". Some argue that the recession isn't here yet. Others have concluded that certain economic facts indicate that a recession is looming. Still others claim the recession is already upon us. This may get worse than it already is now in mid-2022. Leave a comment below about your spending habits during a recession. Do you cut back on anything? If there are tools of your trade or hobby or lifestyle that require a little more attention than just plain old maintenance, such as repairs or replacement, what will YOU do? Can you even afford to put gas in your chainsaw right now? LOL I mean $4.75/gallon of regular 87 octane fuel is outrageous. Right?

Husqvarna X-Cut® Narrow Kerf Saw Chain

Introducing the Husqvarna X-Cut® saw chain. After years of research, development and live tests, the Husqvarna X-Cut® chain is finally here. The slit (kerf) made by cutting with a chainsaw that is equipped with this chain is very narrow, and will require less engine power (and physical muscle power) to run it than a standard cutting system. We encourage you to try it. Throughout the X-Cut design and the manufacturing process, every facet of the X-Cut® chain has been extremely refined. With this chain you get outstanding sharpness straight out of the box, and that sharpness lasts longer before filing is needed.

What A Husqvarna X-Cut® Narrow Kerf Saw Chain Will Do For YOU

This chainsaw chain will enable you to work longer without re-tensioning, because the X-Cut® chain is pre-stretched at the factory. Imagine not being slowed down by tedious, constant adjustments. Consequently, the risk of damaging your saw due to a slack chain is decreased significantly. Wear on the cutting system of your chainsaw will be reduced, and so will the need for service. Less chain stretching equates to less tedium for you and less risk to your chainsaw.

Here's Partly How Husqvarna Achieved Such High Durability

Wear on the cutting system of your chainsaw will be reduced, and so will the need for service because a precisely balanced combination of materials and manufacturing processes have resulted in the X-Cut® chain’s excellent, dynamic durability. 1) It has been made with optimal heat treatment. Husqvarna has developed a unique method for the X-Cut® chain’s hardening. This process involves optimal heat treatment and cooling – creating an incredibly durable structure on the molecular level. 2) The micro-structure of the steel is not too hard, not too soft. The chrome layer applied to it is not too thick, not too thin. The steel and the chrome have been precisely defined on a molecular level to ensure this chain’s high sharpness and cutting capacity. 3) Speaking of cutting efficiency, the X-Cut® chain is designed to cut faster and smoother right out of the box. It's easy to understand that with your cutting efficiency improved, less of your own physical effort is required to make each cut and that certainly makes the job easier on your body in a day's work. You'll see it in your results. 4) Small, arrow-shaped channels in the links transport oil to the X-Cut® chain during operation, guaranteeing superior lubrication. The result is less wear and tear on your Husqvarna chainsaw. 5) A saw chain’s cutting angle is critical. The tighter the angle, the higher the sharpness – however, if you overdo it, the cutter will lose sharpness and break. With the X-Cut® chain, Husqvarna has found the perfect angle.

9 Reasons Why YOU Should Run A Husqvarna X-Cut® Narrow Kerf Saw Chain

  1. Sharpness That Lasts
  2. Low Stretch
  3. High Durability
  4. Optimal Heat Treatment
  5. Efficient Cutting
  6. Optimal Cutting Angle
  7. Precision Chrome and Steel
  8. Superior Lubrication
  9. Less Physically Demanding

Buying Pixel Chains

The difference between a pixel chain and regular chain the width of the cut they make (kerf). You can not run regular chain on a Husqvarna pixel bar if it involves mixing guages, but you can use .050 guage pixel chain if the bar is .050 guage. Where some folks get messed up is when different language and abbreviations are thrown in, such as PICCO which can be the same as calling it pixel. This is not the same as Low Profile, although there are Narrow Kerf versions of LP. Any of these will work on a give bar of the same gauge and pitch provided you don't try to use narrow kerf on a standard kerf bar. Pixel bars and chains are narrow cutters and are good for lower powered saws because they make less work load. You can run normal .325 .050 chains on a pixel bar. But you can not run a pixel chain on a normal bar because the bar would be too wide and would stop you from cutting when it hit the wood. If you did install a pixel narrow kerf chain on a normal kerf bar and tried to cut wood, it wouldn't cut past the chain depth. The slit or kerf that the pixel chain would be cutting would be smaller than the width of the bar, so the bar would get stuck. Remember the traditional jargon and measurements of chains when purchasing: pitch, gauge, and number of drive links. Then add the fact that they're low profile, narrow kerf, then their shape (chisel, semi-chisel), cutter spacing (full complement, semi-skip, full skip), include any low-kickback features, special grinding angles, carbide tips. Anytime you change a chain, you just have to verify that the sprocket and bar are compatible, and that there aren't any clearance issues with the saw itself.
