    Best entry level saw a available
    I’ve had this saw for many years now and it has done jobs way bigger than it ever was meant to do. I must have had it at least 15 years now. Maybe 10. I’ve replaced a bar oil reservoir and a chain one time. It is very powerful for a small entry level saw. It has been worked very hard recent cutting down 34 ash trees all around 50 feet tall. It has a thin bar and blade that allows it to cut through fast. Some of the trees were more than two feet across. It had zero problems. It’s light weight. ... read more It’s perfect. Everyone should have one of these. The only suggestions I would have would be to make the gas tank bigger and the bar oil tank bigger. It runs dry fairly quick. And I’ll add again that I use it for way more than it was built to do. It’s a great saw. At this price you will find nothing comparible.

    This my BACK-UP Pack!
    Great quality for a great price. I keep a pack of these with my Saw Sharpening Kit. Perfect quantity to get you through the season. A 10-pack would end up rusting on you!

    Strong STIHL for Razor Sharp Teeth
    I’m not sure what hey have done at STIHL to make the files but they seem to cut better than the ones ya pick up in the box store. They sharpen quicker and last a bit longer in my experience. I’m using the files on .375 RS & PM & PMM chains. They work great on all of them! A bonus is hey drop right into my 2 in 1 kit as well!! Worth the extra money!

    Probably my favorite chain for my 026 Pro
    I swapped the .325 pitch chain on my 026 Pro to run 3/8 so that I was using the same chains as my larger saw. I love the 026 but it's right at the bottom of the power range to pull a 3/8, so the chain really makes a difference. I've used several different chains from Stihl & Oregon, and this one seems to work the best for me. As long as I'm not too impatient, it cuts well and sharpens easily. For reference, I'm NOT a tree professional. I typically drop & cut between 15-40 trees a year and file ... read more by hand with a standard file guide.

    Best Full Comp Chain
    I can't say enough about these Rapid Micro chains for durability. I used to run all full chisel, Rapid Superb but dulled more quickly. Have changed over to the semi chisel. Stay sharp longer in hard wood. I've tried other cheaper brands but the genuine Stihl is the best chain but important to always keep sharp and properly tensioned.

    terrific all purpose chain
    I bought this chain to replace the green safety chain that came with my Stihl 291 saw. It is the 26RM74 for use with my 18" bar. When I first used my saw with the safety chain it cut very well-just a bit slow. At the time we were cutting fallen oak. For comparison, I switched to this yellow RM chain and the difference was immediately apparent. The RM chain was much more aggressive. I'm still using the original bar, which is a Rollamatic E bar (green). The chain is easy to sharpen and ... read more maintain. I am not a lumberjack by any means but I usually cut with a friend who typically cuts 10 to 12 cords a year. He tried my saw with both of the chains and he also thought the difference was significant. In not so many words, he basically told me to throw the green chain away. Of course I will not. Instead, I keep the green chain as a spare. Stihl's website warns users that the yellow chains have a higher potential for kickback but I have had no such issues. Again, I'm still using the green safety bar so perhaps that is one of the reasons I've had no issues with kickback. That's about it. The RM chain works very well and is easy to sharpen. Wilkie

    Dog & Chain Saver!
    If you drive like any typical logger with a dog in the back of your truck, these Bar Scabbards are the best way to keep Fido from becoming hamburger! Aside from protecting "man's best friend", they sure save your chain from the ravages of a steel pickup bed, or from any other objects for that matter. You might even save those new double-front logging jeans, as well. Just think how long it takes to dress-up a chain!

    Great design
    I have owned countless stihl chainsaws and always put scabbards on them. I am extremely impressed with the climbing saw scabbard as it clicks on to prevent it from falling off and can be hooked onto a carabiner when your operating the saw in the tree.

    Basic but effective tool
    I’m not sure how much more they could pack into this small package. It’s like the Swiss Army Knife of Chainsaw sharpening tools. I use mine to clean the bar and file the rakers when the shop sharpens the teeth (they never lower the rakers and it won’t cut as fast). Anyway, the tool is good and well worth the price, BUT now there is the 3 in 1 filing system that cuts the time down by filing the tooth and the rakers in the same operation. This tool is good and will serve you well but in the same ... read more way the computer is an improvement in efficiency over the abicus for calculating numbers the 3 in 1 tool is that much more efficient for filing your chain. You can get there both ways but one is much easier.

    A MUST-HAVE to Keep Your Guide Bar Channel CLEAN !
    In some ways this inexpensive tool is just as valuable as your Guide Bar. You should carry it in your saw's Tool Pouch & clean out the oiling channel every time you pull the Chain off. The newer Bars have inadequate diameter oiling holes, resulting in a "dry Bar" condition regardless of how much you turn-up the Oil Delivery setting. A dirty channel will only exacerbate that problem! And, a screwdriver will not reach down to the bottom of the channel. Most shops tend to forget to file the ... read more rakers when sharpening your chains. This tool is a must-have to ensure the correct amount is filed off.

    Great saw
    The easy start is great. I ruined my old saw when I put regular gas in it. My friend had an easy start saw. I got to use it and loved. When I replaced my old one I purchased the easy start. It has plenty of power and it is easy to use. Love it and I would recommend it perspective buyers.

    BEST Choice for Demanding Conditions & Plunge Cutting
    I opted for this Bar in a 41" length on my MS-880 R "BAKERIZED" Hi-Performance/Timbersports Custom Pro Chainsaw. This saw's aftermarket engine modification is cranking-out unreal power. I prefer to stay away from roller tips when cutting dirty logs or close to the ground, such as flush-cutting stumps. However, I also recommend a solid tip whenever plunge cutting. Since I have boosted horsepower, I also opted for an 8-Tooth Sprocket and the resulting higher Chain speed. I'm running .404/.063 ... read more RSF Chain. The increased arc over the length of the Duromatic E Bar helps keep your cuts straighter than those using the Rollomatic-series Bars. This Bar does not flex as much as the Rollomatic-series, so it should be the obvious choice when opting for an extra-long Bar. The newer Duromatic E Bars do have the angular Oil Delivery Holes. However, I have not run into any problems with adequate Oil delivery to the Chain on my 41" Bar. The Oil Delivery Holes on the longer Bars are of larger diameter. My MS-880's Oil Pump is set at the nominal factory "E" setting & my 41" Bar is plenty wet as it should be.

    Best bar I have ever used.
    The Stihl Duramatic E . Proving it's durability, this bar has been through a lot of cutting in the amount of time spent using this, it's really shown that it can handle whatever is thrown at in the past few years. I have cut everything from small limbs to felling, to bucking, to flush cutting 40 inch stumps, this bar has stood up to the punishment. Proving itself and outlasting any other bar 3 to 1. This is my bar of choice!
