    hello all, i was recently given a 48" cannon bar. it used and probably 10 years old but its in fine shape. it is marked "HUS5063 S" i dont know if this means i need to run 063 chain or not. its for milling mostly and accational stump job, if you understand these markings please help.
    thanks

    Stab in the dark, but to me, that looks like a 50" .063 gauge bar, maybe the S means "sprocket". The H at the beginning may be for Husqvarna mount?

    Old stock markings?
    As above, Husqvarna mount, 50 inch, 0.063 gauge- S probably means replaceable sprocket tip.
    Only thing I cannot tell you is if it is 3/8 or 404..... which might have been stamped into the sprocket tip?
