And the cutters will bend if you look at them too hard!!!!
Bailey's had Carlton/Woodland Pro 3/8 .043 non safety, non bumper chains. I picked up a couple for my polesaw.
I will agree the quoted text is a good answer to whether or not non safety 0.043 3/8lp is available. That stuff is just the cutters for what is normally on the 0.050 3/8lp if that is what someone wants.
So the Carlton has the same cutters on both chains?
.043 and .050?
The loops of .43 I received were definitely non safety with no bumpers or bent over rakers.
I am talking about the cutters. On Stihl, the cutters are much thinner and lighter and bend easily.
Same with Oregon.
I just converted 2 MS170 series saws to 3/8" .050" pico (low profile) and am working on a third. Cuts much better, chain lasts longer, bar lasts longer, etc.
IMHO the .043 chain should NEVER have been put on a standard high rev chainsaw. It should be left on the slow pole saws that it was originally designed for.
No not the same with oregon. Oregon 90 class chain is closest to bend by looking at which you mentioned prior. Carlton N1c and N4c sure seem to have the same cutters, hopefully I remember the codes correctly. I think there is even chisel 0.043 chain on ebay that likewise has the same cutters as the 0.050 of the same brand.
But the cutters on the Stihl .043 is very thin as well.
I never measured to see who is the thinnest.
It is good to know that the \Carlton has the same cutters though.
I ended up buying the .050 bar and chain Oregon from Walmart for 27$. That killed any savings I had buying the 170 in the first place.
But it cuts good and will be a good pick up truck saw.
The Stihl dealership in Glasgow, KY said they would swap out the new bar and chain with the .050 if I wanted! So I’m thinkin about gettin another one before the end of June, 2019, while the $20 sale is still on!
Yeah, a lot of dealers will do that.
The price is about the same, and it beats having a pissed off customer
What about full chisel pika? Those are sharp little teeth
