SPROCKETS, CLUTCH DRUMS
High-grade sprockets and clutch drums for the chainsaw at chainsawpartsonline.co.uk
The chainsaw works with a sprocket on which the chain is installed. The crankshaft stimulates the sprocket for the movement of the chain over the object to be operated. The sprocket is integrated into the clutch drum which is a disk-like object. With the regular usage of the chainsaw or sometimes when it is used with the brake in on position, the clutch drum starts to rotate while the chain does not move resulting in the warping of the clutch drum. This also causes the overheating of the whole system causing a breakdown of the chainsaw. The needle bearing may get broken if the issue is not resolved timely. The sprocket and the clutch drum can be checked for replacement if the chain stays loose even after repeated tightening.
