Makita EA7301 bar
« on: October 27, 2019, 07:33:03 AM »
Just pulled  the trigger on a Makita AE7301 .I got it for very good price brand new in the box. I have never owned a Makita/Dolmar  so ......Looking to put a 28 inch light weight bar on it. 3/8 050 is what it calls for. What would you recommend for a lightweight bar. I mostly just do firewood and usually use my still MS 291, but I have some larger wood to cut through so for the price of this saw went for it. Any help would be great. New to this forum. There is so much info here.

Welcome! My *thorough internet research has determined it uses a large Husky mount(D009), so any bar compatible with that. Personally I'd look at Sugihara and Tsumura.


*IOW, you should confirm that elsewhere. I don't have the saw, and I'm not familiar with them, but that's what the internet told me.

Correct D009 mount, I call it Large Husqvarna mount as it fits on their larger saws, 562, 372,390, 395 and many others, very common bar mount, even some Stihl bars will fit with an adapter. ✌

Thanks everyone!!!! I followed his advice and when with a 20 husqvarna pro bar with replaceable nose, with a Oregon power cut chain. Wow its the most powerful saw I have run and pulls it no problem. Heres another question I picked up a light weight 28 and and a skip tooth chain for only occasional cutting. Do I need to change the sprocket??

Sprocket will be fine as long as the gauge of the new stuff matches stock.

No need to change the sprocket as long as the pitch matches, it doesn't care about the gauge.

Ah! Pitch is what I meant. Gauge is irrelevant. A case of the stupids, and maybe a little scotch.

The 7301 will pull that 28" bar nicely, I bet that you'll keep the 28" on it most of the time.
