The guy at the Stihl Dealership asked why I would want to convert over to the 3/8" pitch chain from .325" pitch on my 260, I told him I wanted to be able to swap out with my .031av which also has a 16" bar (which is the truth). He said he hardly ever sells a 3/8' chain and bar for smaller saws like the 260, I believe him as he had a huge stock of .325" pitch Stihl chains on the display. He had a hard time finding the correct small spline 3/8" 7 pin drive sprocket for the 3/8" pitch chain. I hope I am not messing up by trying to standardize on one size chain. What chain type do you guys like? I will be cutting both green hedge, and soft woods like elm, pine, etc. I am guessing but am thinking about a full chisel non-saftey chain as I am pretty careful when cutting.
