These chains suck bad.

I purchased a few loops for my 18” and a few loops for my 24” saws.
It’s all that my local dealer had in stock.

They don’t cut right after very little use (no abuse).

I have been using Oregon, Husqvarna and Stihl chains for almost 30 years and have never had such poor performance (besides the garbage Bailys chains).

Don’t waste your money!!!

Been here a while
Thanks for the tip...I have some woodland pro chains that I bought $100/10 that I regret. Was thinking I might try x-cut as replacement. Maye not so much.

The X-Cut chains are what Husky puts on all their new battery saws (T540iXP, etc) which I've been using recently, and I'm not super impressed. I know it is a narrow kerf design for efficiency, a good thing especially on battery tools, but they just seem weak and chinsey to me. I'm only 1/3 of the way through my first chain, it is cutting fine for me and probably is plenty for what the saw should be used for, but it doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in it's durability.
