Introducing Husqvarna X-Cut® saw chain
The Husqvarna X-Cut® is the world’s first original Husqvarna saw chain. It’s designed for a single purpose: to optimize the performance of your Husqvarna chainsaw – and thereby maximize your output.
The highly anticipated X-Cut® chain for professionals is finally here. Developed, designed and manufactured using the most advanced technologies and rigorous quality control. With a long-lasting sharpness, an outstanding durability and high cutting efficiency, it is made for minimum down time and maximum results.
SHARPNESS THAT LASTS
The design of the cutters, the materials used and the manufacturing processes have all been refined to the extreme. This gives the X-Cut® saw chain an outstanding sharpness straight out of the box, and also – perhaps more importantly – a sharpness that lasts considerably longer before filing is needed.
The X-Cut® saw chain is pre-stretched at the factory, which means you will be able to work longer before it needs re-tensioning. No unnecessary adjustments will slow you down, and the risk of damaging the cutting system with a slacking saw chain is decreased significantly.
HIGH CUTTING EFFICIENCY
The X-Cut® saw chain is made to cut faster and smoother than comparable products, and it is ready to be used right out of the box. This improves your cutting efficiency and thereby your results. At the same time, less human effort (feed force) is needed, making the whole work experience easier on your body.
OPTIMAL CUTTING ANGLE
The angle of the cutter is crucial for your long-term efficiency. The tighter you make this angle, the higher the sharpness – but if you overdo it, the cutter will lose its sharpness faster and break easier. With X-Cut®, Husqvarna has focused on finding the optimum angle for an efficiency that lasts.
CHROME AND STEEL EXACTLY MEASURED
The microstructure of the steel – not too hard, not too soft – and the chrome layer – not too thick, not too thin – have both been exactly defined on a molecular level. This ensures a high cutting capacity and a lasting sharpness.
Small, arrow-shaped channels in the links help transport oil all high friction zones during operation, ensuring a superior lubrication
OPTIMAL HEAT TREATMENT
For the hardening, Husqvarna has developed its own unique method of making the steel as durable as possible. This includes optimal heat treatment as well as optimal cooling – creating a molecular structure that provides an incredibly durable saw chain.
DEVELOPED BY ENGINEERS
True to Husqvarna’s heritage, the chain has been developed in close collaboration between engineers and professional loggers. With the ambition to design a chain that increases productivity, the engineers and loggers have worked together to perfect the chain.
“For me, logging is a passion and a business, where high performance means high productivity and better profit. I’m proud to have been part of the development of X-Cut® and excited that there is now a chain specially designed for my Husqvarna chainsaws”, says Lars Strandell, multiple World Logging Champion with 30 years of professional logging on his record.
PRODUCTION BUILT FROM SCRATCH
The saw chain factory in Huskvarna employs over 100 people and is strategically located beside the chainsaw R&D and factory. All parts of the saw chain are manufactured on-site, from raw steel to finished product, reducing dependency on external suppliers and securing quality of the chain. The factory is designed to be environmental impact neutral, and uses state of the art technology to recycle both chemicals and energy.
Husqvarna X-Cut® is now available instore in two variants: C85 3/8” full chisel, and SPG33 .325” semi chisel chain. Both are sharp out of the box, pre-stretched, highly durable, and easy to spot due to the golden tie-strap that helps users keep track of the start/finish of their filing loop.
