    Hey Rich thanks for your input brother. All good pointers indeed. The towels are my personal pads :lol: my gecko pads are worn out and I'm too cheap to buy new ones.

    I cracked my brake chain a couple of days ago, zip lining the echo for refuel :lol:, it hit the ground hard and cracked a section of the brake bar, making a bit difficult to unlock. Need to replace soon.

    Ive tried em all. K+H are the best hands down. 10s and 12s, mostly 10s. Hard heads are ok, but they dont drive as good imo, and are heavy if your packing em all day.

    Never considered that chain stretch had anything to do with how sharp a chain is, something I will have to think about. Very true about our wood being different, or the possibility that it is different. I wouldnt claim to know, I have never cut anything in your part of the country, but it does stand to reason.

    Brian, this is not pointed at you directly, but my general observation- No offense intended, but if your filing, and less than an expert with a file, and/or using a round file, then your chains are not what I would consider sharp. Most all cutters here run silvey grinders for that very reason. Not trying to start a fight... ;) Stig, Of the cutters I know Oregon favors Stihl chain at least 2 to 1.

    I run Oregon. Most guys here do. Smoother and cuts faster. Gotta keep it outta the dirt though. Ran stihl chain for years. It stays sharper longer than Oregon, and you can saw some dirtier stuff and it will still cut ok, but its not as sharp as oregon initially, nor as smooth. I buy it buy the roll, and actually have several rolls. Comp and full skip for long and short bars. I do have a roll of skip stihl that I like for my long bars, as in 42 and up. It cuts a wider kerf than oregon which is good on long bars. I run 3/8 even on the 60" bar, when it gets too short (teeth) I cut the chains up and run on short bars. Just my .02 Use a roll or a roll and a half a year. So 100 to 150' of chain.

    Hey Brian can you elaborate a bit more on the chain roll? I've been thinking of doing that, but haven' really looked into what I would need and how it works, best place to buy etc.

Biography:
I'm in my mid 30's. Been a contract timber faller in the Pacific Northwest since graduation from college. Have done several conifer removals around homes, but always used simple lanyard techniques in order to lower limbs and hang tag lines for pulling. Just getting into the more advanced methods of arborists.

Have recently purchased a new saddle (TM) as well as some poison Ivy and hitch climbers. Been playing with the new gear on some of the old mans big oak trees and am loving the accessability these methods provide.

As a side, I also spent a summer topping doug firs for bird habitat.
