Description

There are 3 types of Sugihara Guidebar – Laminated, Pro Solid and
Light Type. Have a look at the second picture above in the gallery to
see how these bars differ. Read on to find out what makes a Sugihara bar better than others?

 

Steel has different properties dependant on how it is heated then
cooled. Sugihara bars may go through the process of heating and cooling
up to 4 times on different parts of the bar in order to gain maximum
performance. The rails need to be accurately cut and hardened but over
hardening can make them brittle. The bar body needs to be stiff yet
flexible. We have used a number of different chainsaw bars over the
years including all the major manufactures. Sugihara bars are the
hardest wearing bars out there. Even their laminated bars will outlast
rivals.

On the single piece pro and light type bars the hardness of the rails
is measured at HRC 60. Compare this to Stihl at HRC 57 and Oregon at
HRC 55 and it is clear why these bars last longer. They are so hard they
resist most flat files when it comes to bar dressing.

However bear in mind they are more ‘thoroughbred’ in that if they are
mistreated and the bar gets over heated they are more prone to
chipping.
