    Is this old news or new to you guys, I have not been on in awhile. It is 3oz (32in) lighter than the Oregon Reduced Weight bar, much sturdier and the tips last much longer.
    BTW, I got rid of all those damn Huskies!

    News to me. Looks like a VERY nice bar. What kind of price is on a 32"er?

    Same here, I actaully cut logs for two weeks with the 880 and a 36" Oregon Reduced Weight bar, in big wood obviously. It was sweet.

    Anyway I paid $144 for a 32". I think they are really hard to find though. Also comes in a 28" and a 36".

    Can you tell what Stihl has done to make it lighter.
    Also is it made in U.S.


    Last Stihl bar I bought was a 41" for the 880 it was $98.
    $142 seems high but don't get me wrong if I had to use
    a saw every day I would fork out the money also.

    Hell I may buy one for my wife's Christmas :)

    Looks as if you used carb HT-7A, I wanted to have numbers as for the carb anyway, I think their were a few diff ones. As I will be looking at some used
    carbs off of saws.

    I didn't find the coil number, but does 1301A ring a bell to anyone?


    Thanks,

    What happened to the 390 vs 660 thing? I thought you had gone all 390s and quit 660s.

    The Stihl site talks about "Light" Stihl bars, but only for Picco and Mini Picco...

    No burning trees this year. Just green ones, and then boards for building.

    This bar has an aluminum insert on only one side. I am not sure if they have large mount.

    The 390 Husky is a good saw as long as it does not break down, it is not near as reliable as a 660 though. I have been using 460s, if I need anything bigger, I bust out the 880.

    I never had a problem one with the 372s, but the 390s, were headaches.

    Bookerdog, I wear that orange thong year round, but backwards. I am a SF Giants as well as a guy who runs Stihls so the orange serves more than one purpose.
