What bar???

Recommended Posts

Hi, i was wondering if anyone could help me?

 

I have a Stihl ms230 and it needs a new bar, but the old one is so worn out i cant see the details of the bar.

 

So i think the bar is 3/8 and 0.50 is this correct?

 

Also i was wondering if i could put an Oregon bar on the saw because they are slightly cheaper.

 

Many thanks!

Could i buy any brand of bar with the correct pitch and gauge and put it on a stihl?

Only if its for your Stihl . Mount stud size , oiler hole position , that sorta thing . Be silly to get the right gauge and pitch only to find the oiler hole does not line up or it wont fit over the bar studs .

Dont know . Is it listed for your saw ? I thought most Stihl ground saws were .063 gauge but don't quote me on that . Best put a vernier or mic over the drive links of your chain first .
