    Pretty sure the 18" doesn't really have 755 drive links.!!!
    Perhaps someone with more knowledge than I can comment?

    Always happy to see someone stand up for literacy, it doesn't seem to be fashionable these days.;)

    Based on the part numbers and specs of the other chains, I'd say it's 72 drive links.

    anyway, back to the topic on hand. I don't think that will fit, but I'm not a husqy expert. A quick (not thorough) google search tells me that you need a .325/.050 x 72DL, the one on that website is .375/.050x??DL (.375=3/8)

    anybody else confirm this?

    I see a lot of 0.085 gauge chains there but no 0.058 gauge. Are they typos like the 755 links?

    Last I was at local Northern Tool in November to my surprise they still had a couple sizes of Oregon LGX 72 yellow label full comp chain on the shelves.Even the 20" 70 link which is scarce around here in loops.Back when I started cutting over 30 yrs ago all you could find at farm supply stores,hardware stores & saw/OPE shops were full comp,not that worthless safety chain with the folded over rakers that's at all big box stores too.
