325 chain
« on: October 15, 2013, 06:59:05 pm »
hey all, I have a logger friend using a 261 on the landing for limbing and sizing. I am supposed to get him some of the best cutting chain at Bailey`s and I need to know what species.
So what say you.

That's what these guys are using I believe, its Stihl something. Im referring them to Baileys to get them a more affordable option. We have an Oregon and a woodsman pro. Anybody have a favorite.
Would it be safe to assume 50 gauge is the more common bar

I would go with Oregon 21 or 22 lp, that would be close to rsc chain. Not a fan of the woodland pro chain.

Here the loggers buy Oregon, homeowners Stihl.
What do you want? May be able to save you a few bucks.

Art I'm looking for 73LGX but in 325 ;D

in truth Art what did you use, they have a 261 as a landing saw, they bring the tree out whole and limb it and size it. They then bulldoze the branches into piles and burn them.  They are making more farmland.

Lots of limbing....they are keeping everything 2inch and up

Oregon .325 chisel chain has safety bumpers on every other driver that works along side the rakers.

20LPX?? =.050   ?? = drive links
21LPX?? =.058
22LPX?? =.063

Landing saws got Stihl RM or Oregon BP/DP if any mud was around. Same for winter skidded wood.
