I think BB runs a 36" on a 8000. I am trying to decide on which 36" 3/8 116DL chain to start with on this saw. Full Skip or Full Comp. I'm sort of thinking full skip.


@brokenbudget


I'd go full skip.  Chip clearance gets to be a problem with full comp over 28" or so.  Worse with some woods (like Doug Fir) than others however.  Also.........................full skip means a lot less cutters to file.8)

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.
