 If sawing much hardwood go with the 7 as they will saw softwood just fine also.   You are talking about    not pitch.  Pitch is how far the teeth are spaced apart with 7/8" being the most common, I run 3/4" pitch for spruce now, also some run 1" pitch but I've never tried them.   Steve

I like 7 blades for all around use, they seem to do better in difficult species. Go with the .045 thickness.

this is good advice,
got the sample a month or so ago, .045 7's not too shabby, in fact cut real good, pitchy pine, some with knots, no issues at all. 
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

I do agree! My 18HP mill is happiest in general with a 7 blade ;D

Please understand that I have only run 10, in several brands, and the 7 in WM. I've heard that the 4 is good for difficult hardwoods, I had one to try but all I had to saw was knotty pine. It didn't do that well for that.

the woodmax in what I sawed in knotty, pitchy pine did good, real good. 7 degree,045, conditions vary for sure, as do mills,
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

Ladylake ,let us know if you try the one in. pitch band I am curious how it performs .I don't cut much hardwood and 7/8 pitch works well in softwood for me.You hear much talk of hook angle and kerf settings but not much on different pitch .I know it's not a fair comparison but a while back I switched to a skip tooth chain over the standard one on my stihl and it was a big improvement.I guess the density is a big factor .

On a band mill I think horse power may have an influence on pitch ,could be wrong.I have heard the 7 degree wm bands turbo I think need a fair amount of power to perform well.Have not tried any yet.Al
