After 50 years of trying, they finally figured it out?

The chain.  This saw must be specially made for undercutting.

I don't see anything wrong with the pic!

Any chainsaw I've ever been around the teeth on top of the bar cut going away from the saw and the ones on the bottom of the bar cut going towards the saw!

yup, it's on backward. If they spend as much attention too building them as advertising them, Their in trouble.

I think what is being seen as "on backwards" is the angle of the picture and the reflection on the teeth.

Here is an ad and can see what appears to be the same pic showing the chain correct on the saw.
(at the link, click on the pic of the saw for an enlargement for a closer zoom look)

http://www.husqvarna.com/us/products/professional-chainsaws/550-xp/

And a blowup of just the chain, where the reflections and angles may (or may not) look different.

A little closer view

On another note,  when I try to copy the URL of the pic into my post, I cant get it to copy or use the insert pic in post button.  Have to open a new window to copy.  Using android mobile.

Someone in the ad dept (that knows nothing about chainsaws, nor does he/she care ;D) just flipped the image to fit the ad.  That'd be my guess at least.

The picture quality is very poor, the image was modified and it looks like the chain is oriented in a reversed mode in a few of the images. It seems to me that the person or persons who developed the image had no idea of the importance of detail to those of us that use this equipment.
