hey case mx270, often wondered why the 039 wasn't a popular saw, I work for a local estate who have one, one day it stopped so I took it into the tool room thinking the starter recoil had jammed, nowt wrong with the starter, took the plug out and it was all bent and smashed, looked into the barrel and there was a stamp sized piece of alloy wedged between the piston and head, stripped the barrel and removed the rogue chunk of metal, to this day neither me or any of the guys know where it came from, but I put the saw back together and have been using it without fault ever since.

I've been using it mainly for hobby milling beams and mantles on a home made mini mill.

quick one about the 395 XP i just got one and has a 28 inch bar and my 385 does , i have 28 inch chains and 2 of which are skip , but was thinking of getting a 32 inch or even 36 inch bar a s we sometimes have big stuff to cut , but not much , would a 395 xp pull a full chain(not so much for power but clearing wood out ) or would a skip be better as they are not easy to get over here


I think a 32" bar will be harder to find than skip chain.


Rob D has Oregon,Cannon and Sugihara bars in 36":thumbup1:

I have some of robs 3/8 058 skip and it's great stuff.



Do you find it expensive? I looked at one for my 460 on a 25" and it was over £40!
