Does anyone have the part numbers for the new EXL chain. Looking for the left and right hand cutters and drive links. I am going to make a full house chain for a guy. Tried oregons web page but that was not working out so well for me. Chain will be 3/8 .058gauge 72 drivers

Had them for LGX at one time but not EXL. I would just make a LGX myself.
I got both EXL and LGX loops.   

Folks say EXL last longer between sharpens. Harder like stihl.
Exl loops they say last longer and lgx would be tossed already.

Spike60 info =     Walt and I did a comparison last Saturday between the EXL and the LGX. There's a video coming at some point, which will show cut times. Pretty much a statistical tie. Funny thing is that Walt got slightly better times with the LGX and I got slightly better times with the EXL. But it was essentially a dead heat. The test saw was a 372 with a 24" bar. One of the variables involved is that Walt had been working with a farmertec 660 and I was cutting with a 262XPG before we compared the chain. So, he's coming out of a 90cc saw and I'm coming out of a 60cc saw. Plus we're 2 different guys. Only going into this detail because on sites like this far too much weight is given to cut times. In the real world, it's more about production over the life of the chain. How it holds it's edge and how user friendly it is. It was definitely smoother, and we both noticed that right away. I'd say the smoothness was somewhere between the 3/8 and .325. Made a lot of cuts before it needed to be tightened. We were both impressed with it.

    The real story with this chain is what @Philbert quoted above from Oregon regarding "Reduce the force applied by the operator". Oregon spent a lot of time engineering the "feed pressure" when designing this new chain. Feed pressure essentially has a minimum and a maximum, and between those two is the operating range or sweet spot of the chain. The minimum is how much pressure the chain needs to hook up perform the way it should, and the maximum is the amount of feed pressure you can apply without stalling the chain. The wider that feed pressure range is the more user friendly the chain is to work with; both for guys with a light touch or a heavy touch.

    Away from the "cookie kitchen" out in the real world where guys are working with the chain rather than playing with it, I'm getting all positive feedback. I've given some samples to some of my pro guys and they are raving about it. Hearing things like "far superior", "excited", " really holds it's edge", and "Hope you got more of it cause I don't want to buy any more of the old chain." "Did 20 trees yesterday morning; felled, limbed and bucked. And it doesn't need to be sharpened" So, that's some of the feedback from the field that I'm seeing. Looks to be a winner IMO. :)
     

Spoke to another logger last night. Again very impressed with the chain. Likes the way it bore cuts, and every tree he does gets a bore cut. Really no feed back yet from these guys on sharpening experiences yet, but I'll post it as this thead continues. haven't even filed it myself yet; maybe later today.

Dealer cost is about a $1 more per loop, so pretty much the same pricing as LGX.

Sierrawoodsman  showed pics of the husqvarna x-cut 325 and she looks semi chisel to me.

So I will stay with LPX RS in 325

I run the EXL on my huskys , its a far better chain cutting in this sand compared to LGX , it holds its edge a lot better . I still far prefer falling with LGX thou, its a lot smoother but does dull easy but just like any chain it needs to be filed right out of the box
