At my real job, we use a 28 inch bar with skip chain on the 440, its just right. On the subject of 16 inch on the 440, we use a 16 inch bar on the 66 and a 20 inch bar on the 88 ;D
Over here 15" bar is standard on the MS660, unless you buy it with Picco (PMX) ripping setup..... :D :D

.... The thing to think about when you put a 16 or 20 on one of these says is that it allows you to exceed the max RPM (around 12,500) ...
Not if you are tuning the saw with the shortest bar you plan to use, or retune each time you swap the bar.

   Out here (gotta make that old "east side/westside" distinction) I've seen 044s with a 32" bar used as landing saws.  The knot bumpers like them 'cause they don't have to stoop over so much.  No real cutting power even with the 32 but  much easier on the body.  For any serious bucking they'll go to a bigger saw.
Sometimes you get things done faster if you do them slower
