Just got off the phone with Madsen's... they are making me up 2 Oregon square chisel full comp loops for the 28" 92DL Tsumura Bar I bought to run on the 372. Also ordered a 7 pin .063 sprocket to match the bar/chain. This should be interesting for me since I've never run anything bigger than .050 lol
Good point on the full house chain, I have been use to hardwoods here in the midwest. Although I will miss all the hardwoods from a builder's/woodworking perspective, the softwoods will be welcomed from the wood cutting/splitting aspect and the timber I have on my land up there is mainly Doug Fir, Larch and white pine, so still outstanding for structural timber.
So taking this one saw at a time, I've decided for the 372 to run 3/8 .063, I found the Tsumura bar I want but finding good chain for it is proving to be more challenging. I don't know a lot about who makes the best chain and so forth, I know I really like the Stihl and Husqvarna chain I've run in the past as well as Oregon Chain but it seems nobody sells a loop for the bar. I will be buying by the roll eventually but before I buy a roll, I want to make sure I like the bar/chain combo. What I can find are a bunch of unbranded & lower end chain from names I've never heard of... a little frustrating.
I'm looking for this chain (to fit a 28" 3/8 .063 D009 Tsumura Bar):
Am I missing something? I would think this chain would be all over the place, anyone know where I can find one made by Husky or Oregon or maybe a better brand I don't know about? I'm not even trying to find a Stihl version, although they have been my preferred chain for all my Stihl saws thus far.
Why is that? It's about my favorite for clean wood, definitely the fastest grind in the wood. Only down side is it can dull faster, hence why I normally run round chisel, but I always switch back to full square when I know I'm in good clean wood.All good except for the square ground part... I've tried different grind styles/techniques including the square ground and hated it. I will likely hand file round ground chain the rest of my days, it's what I know well and what I prefer. I've got no beef with people that have a different way of grinding their chain I just won't use their saw.
Because it's a pain in the @ss to sharpen!Why is that? It's about my favorite for clean wood, definitely the fastest grind in the wood. Only down side is it can dull faster, hence why I normally run round chisel, but I always switch back to full square when I know I'm in good clean wood.
