6800 24" bar
« on: April 22, 2016, 05:00:40 pm »
Installed a NOS Sandvik/Windsor Speed Tip 24" bar on my like new Dolmar PS6800 tonight. I started on this last week and found that it was a 81DL instead of a 84DL. So I bought a NOS Stihl 3/8" X .050" X 81DL RS chain for $21.50 and it came today.

The Dolmar 6000i/6800i - 116Si/120Si came with a Oregon K295 (small Husky mount) but you could get factory bar studs to make them D009 (large Husky) or S25 (Medium Stihl) also. So you might see one with any of the three mounts.

Bar had a tight spot and you could see where something hit it at the factory because the mark was painted over. I stuck my scrench in the tight place and a few taps with a 14 oz ball peen until the chain moved freely took care of the tight spot.

I started her up to wear the paint off the rails. In short order I had to tighten the chain. I ran it some more until it was good and oily.

Sure ran good!  ;D

I went to the Dolmar dealer and this saw was setting there as a trade in. There were not any 6400's around at that time. I couldn't get over the size of the teeth on the dog (Single Dog) It sat there another year before I bought it. I already had a 7900 by then. It was such a sweetheart to use. I ordered what was supposed to be a outer dog for it but when it came, it was another inner dog. I got to looking at the dog and comparing it with the inner. Finally I took a ball peen and knocked the rivnuts off the new dog and it bolted onto the cover perfectly. I had ordered bolts when I ordered the spike. 

And wouldn't you just know it, I haven't cut a single three with it that had thick bark. Nor with my pair of 7900's either.

The previous owner worked for the Norfolk-Western Railroad and had been cutting up creosote crossties with it. It had the original 20" bar and several well used Stihl RS chains. The chains were black as smut from the creosote. I figure used crossties have considerable grit in them?

Anyway, the saw is pleasant to use. Here is Nick from Cincinnati making a cut with it at a GTG a few years ago.

6400 w big bore or 7900 is on my bucket list.  They are such nice saws!

Very Nice!   In time.. Right now I'm content with the 288xp with  24" bar.  Had it buried and leaning on it hard in a monster section of poplar and it never missed a beat.
