I while back a buddy of mine dropped off an 088 with a 42"(I think) bar that needed a little work. I got it done and put it on the shelf. I got some wood dropped off after that. I was working my way through it when I came across a log that was 40". Well I figured I wouldn't be a very good friend if I didn't test out the saw before I gave it back to him. WOW! This thing blasted right through it. I was having so much fun I ended up noodling it into quarters. Now all I have to do is figure out how to talk him out of this saw.
