    I purchased a Husqvarna 240 XTorq 18 inch chain saw from Sears and cannot find a replacement chain for it that will fit. What chain will fit the 18 inch 240 series? The teeth of the chain it came with are stamped "16".

      The Husqvarna 240 with 18' bar uses a low profile chain, A good site to research bars and chains is "", just click on selector guide when you get to the site. Here is some information that I found on your chainsaw:


      S64 91 LOW PROFILE™ Chain 64 3/8" .050" 5/32"

      From the table above you low profile chain for an 18" bar will have 64 drive links, 3/8 pitch, and .050 gauge, and oh the 5/32 is the round file size for sharpening.

      A cross reference to Husqvarna chain is HVA 501 84 70 62 , there are many manufactures of chains for your saw, Just remember its a "Low profile" chain, and all the numbers in the table above have to match up (drive links, pitch and gauge).

      Oh, the "16" on chain is a specific manufacturers numbering system, and they have combined the pitch number and gauge number.

      I hope this helps
