I never milled with a ported or compression modified powersaw. A stock Stihl 090AV or a stock Husky 395XP is all I use on a 36" Alaskan running square ground chisel bit .404
I milled alot of 16ft 2"x12" DED killed American elm. You won't find much hardwood tougher then thst dead elm.
Good edge on the chain takes me 5 minutes for a 16ft cut making 12" cants.
Another thing I do is mill in winter time when it's -30 below. Carb is set richer for that cold, saw has no chance of overheating, chain runs cooler and boy that extra cold oxygen sure make those saws run nice.

Making a living with a saw since age 16.
