I've never seen a plunge bow on a saw that small.  Seen pics of a small brush bow on a S25 before.

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.

That must be what I saw on the little stihl. Bar narrower?

Yep.  Brush (AKA clearing) bows are generally long and narrow.  They have a smaller 'plunge' section on the front, and often don't have guards.

That's actually a small plunge bow.  Plunge bows have a large, often 'flat' section in the front.  They usually have a top guard, and sometimes have  a bottom guard as well.

Yeah that isnt the narrow bar I wanted to show. Got side tracked with other work.   Just the same size small saw.

It was one like this on a small saw.

Right you are Sir! Just outside Richmond Va.  :)


Did you paint the bar?  If so what color and what did you use.  Might need to add to the green thread here.

All I did is bolt it on once I got it. I restored a 245A bowsaw a while back, but I couldn't tell you what color paint I used because I took a sidecover to an automotive paint store and they trial and error mixed a quart of paint for me. It was close but not dead on. It looks pretty much like the bow on this saw, not quite LIME enough.
