I had a brand new 18" bar for my 026 that I purchased years ago and thought I would put it on. Instead of going to my Stihl dealer I just got one from Lowes. It's an oregon low kick chain. What a joke. It won't cut shi:censored:. Guess I'll go to my dealer and get a real chain. I've used Oregon chain before and never had problems. My Echo has an Oregon on it though it's a different style, cuts very well. It'll out cut my Stihl with that POS chain. Anyone ever experience this. Looking at the chain closely it looks like the guide is as high as the cutter or almost. Maybe .010.
