I'll also have a look at modding Stihl bars ready for other saws - although not sure what the legal aspects of that may be ie. fine for customers to do it - fine for me to do and then sell to customers? Not so sure :001_huh:



No one would have to know... I might give you a call about those "defective 150 bars" if I buy an echo :biggrin:

So a narrower chain would just speed up the cut? I can see that being a good upgrade. Used it again today, not really a tough test just pruning apple trees and a small syc reduction. It doesn't really lose power in the bigger cuts but an increase in speed of cutting would be a definite improvement. Not used a 150 very much but this seems quicker and more powerful than the 150 even with the stock chain. Would be interested to compare them back to back.
