Re: How to identify Oregon chain
« on: November 14, 2013, 10:55:50 pm »
This took me a while to track down: interpretation of Oregon retail chain coding system (e.g. 'S56' = 56 drive links of 3/8 low profile chain, .050 gauge).

Note these codes refers to size only.  It is usually reduced kickback chain, and might be different models of that size (e.g. 91VG or 91P, or  . . . ).

It's good to note in case you need to run into a hardware store or home center to replace a chain, and want to know what fits your saw. It's not always marked on the package.
Usually limited to popular chain types and sizes, but for example, I know that I have several saws that use 'S56'.
