Re: Chainsaw Chain Slipping Off

Dale Stansbery
There's too many variables to give you an answer. I've run a 16" Husky for years and never had a problem. If you are experienced with this chainsaw, I'll assume that you know how to tension the chain to begin with. be sure the bar is fully extended and there's only a enough slack to lift the chain up to show a part of the bottom teeth running in the bar. Make sure the bar is rotated up when tightening. If not, the bar will slip upwards while cutting and loosen the chain. Is your oiler working? A dry chain will quickly wear and loosen as well as wear out your bar. If everything is clean, and your getting a good tight fit between the chainsaw body, bar, and outer cover, then examine the bar hole and the adjuster that fits into it for wear.
