on 6 September 2014
I bought this for my little Stihl 017 which I use for cutting up firewood etc. This seems to be a good chain as such but it did tend to stretch when new quicker than say the equivalent Stihl chain (Yes I do know how to use a chainsaw, I have done for 35 years or so I know how to 'run in' a new chain , I did not overtighten it! ) Another observation is that the drive links are a tad thicker than those on a Stihl chain. When I originally mounted it on The Stihl's own guide bar it was so tight it would not actually move around it . But surprise surprise when I took the guide bar off and replaced it with a new Oregon guide bar it worked perfectly. ( A clever marketing ploy by Oregon ? hmm ) Anyway, it cuts wood and it seems to keep it's edge for a long time between sharpenings . It'll do!
