What's a mastermind saw Andrew, sounds interesting. I'm still thinking about a 60cc saw, but can't make my mind up between 6100 and 560.

Just put “mastermind meets the dolmar 6100” in google or what ever saw your wanting. If he done it it should be there. 

but on the side note, he used to be on ass-site (arboristsite) not that I have any preference to a favourite forum or unfavourable one. It’s just what I read and what’s. Gone on before..ymmv.

anyhow,  mastermind is just that with saws and has a good reputation,,  you will find him on Ope.com (outdoorpowerequiment) 

ps tree monkey is there. As are others..

you. Will need to Spend time reading some threads 😉

 

Edit  if you read and take note of the tone, your be ok. They do ban peeps will attitudes, unlike other forums like sawhawgz etc.

I have a Dolmar 7910 79cc chainsaw that run the D009 type of Bar with a Chain that has a Pitch 3/8" and a Chain Gauge of 0.058 ...
 
I have been thinking about also getting a Dolmar 6100 60cc Chainsaw that runs a ??? bar and Chain Pitch 0.325 " and a Chain Gauge of 0.058 "
 
I understand that it is possible to run the same type of chain as my 7910 chainsaw 3/8" - 0.058 on the 6100 chainsaw. Which will mean that I won't have to carry a second sharpening kit about....
 
So what will I need to do to be able to run bigger chain on the 6100?
 
What type of bar style is on the 6100 and will the 6100 take a D009 style bar?
If so will I have to do anything to get the 6100 to take the D009 bar?
Will I need to change the drive sprocket?
Will I need a different bar and if so what?

So would I be correct that I have to get a K095 Mounted Bar  that will take a 3/8th Pitch and 0.058 gauge chain and swap the drive sprocket to one that will drive that type of chain? 
So it will run the same chain as a 7910 but using a different mounted bar?

The chains are the exact same, just more links/longer... the bars are different shape, size and pattern. For example a 3/8 0.058 in 18" for your 6100 will be a 64 drive link chain, but the same chain is 68 drive links for the 7910 18" bar...

You don't change anything on the saw - leave it alone.

 

The 6100 will 'take' the bigger bar but it certainly doesn't fit properly! (Been there done that with my 6800)

 

 

I have 3/8, 1.5(0.058) on all my blue Dolmars running from 15" right up to 28". For the reasons you are thinking about - you only need 1 file etc for sharpening.
