440 magnum max bar
« on: June 26, 2014, 07:28:48 PM »
So keeping the power of a 440 magnum in mind what is the max bar length I should consider? I need to split some large spruce logs so they will fit on my mill. It would also be nice to have a longer bar for the occasional large tree I need to drop. Currently I run a 20" bar. Hoping a 30 or 36 is doable.

I have a 36" for my 440 and in the past used it quite often. Don't be in a hurry, keep the chain sharp and just let it cut.
