Last time I was at lowes in the saw section. They had the husky equivalent to 72v for 20" bars. Local dealer I used before they closed up had it in stock. Think I still have a few loops left. I see them there in the box and think I am not filing those rakers. So I dig in the other box and get some 33RS.

+1 on filing the rakers is my main thought.

That Vanguard chain is actually  ANSI rated as a green chain.  Best cutting green chain out there..

Tried a few V chains when they came out. The best bore cutting chain I ever tried. Very smooth with little to no kickback. Raker files best from the outside in.

I took a vanguard chain and ground the angle off of the rakers.   Problem was the rakers became to short and the chain was very aggressive.   I use it but only for cutting pine.

I typically just file the rakers as needed. only problem is that when the angle on the raker is gone its getting real close to being worn out.
now is never here but the past is always present.

I have a loop of 72V. It cuts good but I dread cutting all that folded over raker mess down when it starts wearing.
