It’s all about the output: Introducing the Husqvarna X-CUT® saw chain
It’s designed for a single purpose: to optimize the performance of your Husqvarna chainsaw – and thereby maximize your output. This is how it works.
After years of research, development, lab and live tests, the Husqvarna X-CUT saw chain is finally here. The X-CUT saw chain SP33G is a low-vibration pixel saw chain that cuts a narrow kerf and requires less power from the saw than standard cutting systems. These are its most prominent features – all working together to provide you with more cubic meters, every day.
Sharpness that lasts
The design of the cutters, the materials used and the manufacturing processes have all been refined to the extreme. This gives the X-CUT saw chain an outstanding sharpness straight out of the box, and also – perhaps more importantly – a sharpness that lasts considerably longer before filing is needed.
Low stretchThe X-CUT saw chain is pre-stretched at the factory, which means you will be able to work longer before it needs re-tensioning. No unnecessary adjustments will slow you down, and the risk of damaging the cutting system with a slacking saw chain is decreased significantly.

High durabilityThe exactly balanced combination of construction, materials and processes have resulted in an excellent, dynamic durability. The wear on the cutting system is reduced, and consequently the need for service.
High cutting efficiencyThe X-CUT saw chain is made to cut faster and smoother than comparable products, and it is ready to be used right out of the box. This improves your cutting efficiency and thereby your results. At the same time, less human effort (feed force) is needed, making the whole work experience easier on your body.
Optimal cutting angleThe angle of the cutter is crucial for your long-term efficiency. The tighter you make this angle, the higher the sharpness – but if you overdo it, the cutter will lose its sharpness faster and break easier. With X-CUT, Husqvarna has focused on finding the optimum angle for an efficiency that lasts.
Chrome and steel exactly measuredThe microstructure of the steel – not too hard, not too soft – and the chrome layer – not too thick, not too thin – have both been exactly defined on a molecular level. This ensures a high cutting capacity and a lasting sharpness.
Superior lubricationSmall, arrow-shaped channels in the links help transport oil to the saw chain during operation, ensuring a superior lubrication.
Optimal heat treatmentFor the hardening, Husqvarna has developed its own unique method of making the steel as durable as possible. This includes optimal heat treatment as well as optimal cooling – creating a molecular structure that provides an incredibly durable saw chain.
The professionals’ assessment
There is, as you may have guessed, a lot more that could be said about the Husqvarna X-CUT saw chain. But, enough product facts – what might be most important to you right now is what the professionals have to say.
In v May 2016, sixteen professional loggers and arborists from seven countries were let loose in a Swedish forest to try the new saw chain. These highly skilled and experienced men and women are dependent on the efficiency of their tools in their everyday work – and their assessment of the X-CUT saw chain can be found in the article below.
