Has a Oregon style nose.

Might be made by whoever makes the Forester's?

There bars don't seem bad but I would advise to stay away from there chains. They aren't made very well and soon loose there edge.

A friend of mine has a few of them and he says the sprocket tips do not hold up so well. He also does land clearing . So that may have something to do with it or the guys he has running them.

I just bought a archer bar to try out on a 025 firewood cutters saw on a budget. Never had one before to know anything about them.

I hear their chains are junk but for $5 more I could get a chain. So I did to check it out too. 

Crossing fingers.

On the chain box I noticed the kangaroo as a logo for Australia.
Fascinating looking animal. Looks like a mule deer with deformed front legs and tail.

Chain cut good right out of box. Wasnt expecting that.  Didnt file on it so dont know how soft the metal is or not.

Greased bar tip real good. Bar looks nice built anyways.  Didnt test bar railing with file to see hardness. Now how well it holds up.

Only time will tell me.
