The 7900 uses the same bar as the big Husky and Jonesred mount

Kevin. What do you think of those pro forester bars. Aren't they made in Germany?

The green lettered  forester with replaceable tip reminds me of the oregon powermatch bars.

This is the 1st red lettered pro series forester I have bought to try. Rails seem a lot harder metal then the green lettered ones. Reminds me of the older windsor bars JMO. Otherwise not enough time on the bar brand new with just test cuts no real world usage.

Never paid attention where the red lettered one was made and  to late now to check. I will be ordering more though.

I believe the newer Forester branded bars are made in China.   ;)

Sort of off topic but I bought some Woodland Pro chain from Bailey's the other day and when I got it on the chainsaw, I noticed it had Carlton written on the links. It looks like Oregon 3/8 ths chain to me with my limited knowledge.

Here's some more confusion, Blount bought out Omark Industries [Oregon] way back in the 1980s

Yep, that is why they already owned Oregon, before they bought Windsor and Carlton.

I don't understand why you want the Carlton chassis, as that is not a low vibe one - and one of the reasons I don't want Carlton chain.... ::)
