    Not a quality bar. Oregon makes a better bar when you have to replace yours. IMO

    I was just thinking I might get a 16" bar for the 445 (18 on it now) cuz they are half price at TS, but what they have may not be worth the trouble

    The bar that came new on my 359 was a low quality Husqvarna bar.
    The oil port would clog often & it would get burrs after a few trips. Soft steel I think.
    Got an Oregon Pro-lite. No oil port problems, yet to have any burrs.

    Kept it as a back up for emergencies.
    Found out there is a quality difference from the cheap box store bars & saw shop bars. :)
    Not sure Husqy makes a good bar. I think the sell some of their saws with low quality bars made by Oregon.

    Any way, I'm glad I got the Pro-lite on the saw now, it's a better bar.

    Pixel = .325 narrow kerf.(NK)

    I've been running .325 standard kerf chain (Oregon 20LP, Stihl RS) on my16" Husqvarna Pixel bar (346XP) for the past few years--no problems. FWIW, the bar came with the saw from a dealer.

    NK chain on NK bar = ok
    NK chain on standard kerf bar = no
    standard kerf chain on NK bar = ok
