Who beds a bar stud into plastic?

STIHL do.   MS-171 MS-181 to name two of them.  They tear out if overtightened, or will unscrew with the nut.  STIHL even do a oversized threaded stud to replace the ones that have ripped the thread out of the plastic engine housing.

Bugger. Although those are home use saws I think, the ones I have are forestry spec although I could be wrong I'm just a user not a mechanic

I’ve had at least 3 ms200’s do that over the years... easy down when tightening bar studs!

It's a weight thing isn't it.
Plastic is very light.
Look at all the components which have been changed from metals.

Echo are a decent Saw manufacturer.
They sell several very reliable models.
Like every chainsaw manufacturer though there are duff models or components.

 There are thousands of 2511's about, if it was a common issue it would have been sorted like the heat issue with the 2510's were.

Yup might not be common but once is enough for me
