Little Stihl - long bar...

Recommended Posts

We now have 20" 1/4 .043 bars for both Stihl and Husky saws - a smaller saw ie. 35cc will work with these bars but please be aware:


  1. Panther mini bars are more delicate - all the 1/4 .043 bars are - they don't last as long as a thicker larger bar.
  2. The pay off is a smoother nicer cut - less longevity - how much less longevity is more down to you than the bar.
  3. If you want to go down this route buy a few chains - these small chains tend to be best sharpened once or thrice then replaced.
  4. Below vid is the Stihl bar on an Echo 390ESX [this works with 102 drive links not 100]
  5. Saws this bar will fit? See below BUT this is a custom type fit for experienced and knowledgeable folk - just because it fits doesn't mean you should do it - most people love the 1/4 .043 set up but some really don't so it's not a case of 'this is the best so get it' - it is an option [which we really got for the Panther Cub to give the thinnest milling kerf of any chainsaw mill].

Very very thin so down the grain or across the grain it cuts well - and less sawdust as well. Downside is the fragility...
