Replacing a Spur Sprocket on a Husqvarna Chainsaw
Watch our video on how to replace a spur sprocket on a Husqvarna chainsaw.
A spur sprocket uses star-like teeth to rotate the chain around the bar. If the teeth wear down, the chain can slip or derail from the bar.
This video shows you how to easily replace a worn out spur sprocket.
