I stayed with the minimum to ensure max torque - 18" but it will take up to 25".  After running it, I like the 18" a lot more than my other saw with the 20".  Just more maneuverable and as I stated - ate the wood up like nothing I ever ran. 

I like the control of a shorter bar too.  Guys with longer bars tend to hit dirt and dull their blade.

Here is the link to the chisel cut chain: https://www.baileysonline.com/woodlandpro-18-chainsaw-chain-loop-33rc-66-drive-links-33rc66-wpl-33rc66.html

The bags that the chains came in are generic so I was not able to get the part number off of them, nor find my old order receipt.  I am using the WoodlandPro chisel on both of my bars.  They cut great and sharpen quick also.  Personally I feel I get better longevity out of them vs the Stihl blades.

I got to admit I was afraid to open when I saw the title. Thought it was going to be a picture of my ex.

only used a bigger saw when the 020 wasn't big enough  in tree doing take downs, normal pruning was only an 020.

did use a few climbing saws before I had enough $$ for the o20, started with a homelight xl, then a solo 15

had a few trees I had a homelight   750 in .

fun having that hanging on my side.

we also used a few 032 to just do limbing on the ground. they were super light to work with .

 

somedays feels like that was yesterday, others it feels like 3 lifetimes ago

I knew the guy that owned Allendale Equipment Co. He owned 300 acres of woodland in NY State and he cut A LOT of wood. Only used Stihl saws.
