Ron,

Let me know if you try one and how well it works on a 36 bar.
I need to get a larger mill. I tackled a 30" log the other day with my 24. Talk about tedious.

With my Stihl 090, I think that I am "stuck" with using .404 pitch, 063" gauge chain.  Of course, the bar is 41", so I suppose the strength of this huge-kerf chain is an asset.
I do wish for smaller teeth at times, but, when cutting a 30" sappy pine, I think the large teeth might be necessary, just to carry out all that saw dust.   When I was cutting a 28" Red Oak two weeks ago, it seemed that the chips were packing the chain and bogging down the engine more so, than was the actual strain of the cutting action.

Oregon lists a 3/8, .063 in a 36" bar for the 090.

Here`s a little something extra...

G'day Kevin,

Funny you should bring that up.  Im talking at the moment with a GB rep regarding a 87" double ender...... Around 4 hundy US, which equals almost 500,000 NZ sheckels!  Have had a few occasions where the extra length would have been handy, for that "mother of all table tops".
Also, got a box of 27RA to try, (on your recommendation..... lol) should be fun.

Phil L - with the chips packing your chain, are you using full skip chain?
Cheers
Charlie.

G'day Kevin,

Yep thats the one - .063 .404 full skip.  They didnt have any of the .063 3/8 full skip, maybe I can find some in the future, but Im not to worried over the kerf size, as I cut very little dimension timber.  The 090 can pull the .404 no probs, although I do wonder about a 87" bar though.  Cant really justify 2 088 powerheads but would that sing or what!!!  Ahh its nice to dream.......
Cheers
Charlie.
