SPROCKETS: The chainsaw drive sprocket moves the cutting chain
around a saw's guide bar at high speed and are an essential element
of the saw's cutting team consisting of the bar, chain, and sprocket.
Oregon® offers a wide range of sprocket types for different sawing
applications -- for professional timber cutters to homeowners who
use saws to cut firewood and do chores around home. The ultimate drive-sprocket
system is the Power Mate® system. Power Mate® provides you
- Smoother cutting
- More horsepower delivered from the saw
- Less chain jumping off the bar
- Reduced expensive chain wear
The system's rim-type sprocket can be replaced when necessary saving
you money -- no need to replace the whole system.Oregon® sprockets
can be installed on chainsaws having either inboard-clutch or outboard-clutch
assemblies. Follow instructions in the operator's manual provided
by your chainsaw manufacturer for correct sprocket installation.
