I own a chainsaw and I want to know how to measure chainsaw bar for new chain.

I don't want to pay big bucks for a professional chainsaw sharpening service.

There are many ways to measure chainsaw bar for new chain versus supply chain. One of the most important things to remember is that all chainsaws are different and you must use the method recommended by the manufacturer of the chainsaw. The most popular and simple way to check and replace your chainsaw bar and chain is to use the measurement of the bar and the number of teeth on the blade.

Ideally, you measure the tension of the old chain and compare that value with the bar size. The difference is the amount by which you cut the bar. If the bar is larger, the amount of wear must be added to the measurement. If the measurement is less, then the amount of wear will be subtracted. If you need to make the bar smaller, your saw's manual will tell you how to do that.

A logger uses different sizes of chainsaws to cut down trees. Common sizes of chainsaws used include 16-inch, 20-inch, 24-inch, 30-inch, 36-inch, and 48-inch, with each size being used for different types of trees. The most common trees cut down with chainsaws are trees between 8 and 30 inches in diameter. Each chainsaw size has a different length of its bar, or the saw blade of the chainsaw, so when replacing the chain on the bar it is important to know the length of the bar the new chain will be used on. The chains will have a recommended length listed on the side of the package. If this is not listed, the chainsaw size and bar length can be found on the chainsaw's owner's manual. A new chain should always be measured and cut to the right length before it is installed to make sure it works properly and does not pop off while cutting.
