Since I screwed up one of my chains, and I like having a couple extras for a big job, I decided to buy a couple cheap Oregon chains to see how they perform. This is for a husky 455 rancher. This is the exact chain I bought. I noticed that the angles were a little different than the chains that came with the saw, but that should not be a big deal (35 degree vs 25). Anyway, chain fit fine, but right from the very first cut it seemed dull and it only got worse from there. I haven't sharpened it yet to continue the evaluation, but I was just wondering if its unusual or typical for a new chain to seem dull right out of the box? Also - I thought someone said oregon made the chains for Husqvarna, but the Husqvarna chains that came with my saw look a lot different (they were also very sharp right out of the box).
