    LGX listed above is full chisel but FWIW Oregon recommends 50cc or larger saw. 91VXL is also often recommended on AS. Here's a listing by one of ebay's many great vendors:

    Your saw runs Lo-profile 3/8", Oregon 91 series or similar from Stihl, etc. It cannot run 7x series 3/8" chain, even with the right bar/sprocket combo that saw can't pull it efficiently. You're talking 35cc here, man! The Oregon stuff will work great for you, though that saw would be happier with a 12" bar, in my opinion.

    Ditto. If you want to pull a more aggressive chain, take a look at the poulan 5020, put on a 16 inch bar with some lgx chain and you'll have nice little cutter.

    I am gonna second or third or whatever - the idea of pulling 16" of full chisel with your 35CC beaver is asking a whole bunch from that saw. I think you may find out that it will puke on you in the cut. You will probably stall the chain more than you want.

    Stihl has a full chisel version of their Picco chain that would work well on that saw. You most likely would have to have them cut the loop to size either off a bulk reel or from a longer loop.

    Stihl shop near me has bulk of every chain stihl has.
    They made up a 14" chisel for my old craftsman.
    Got to keep the rpms up, it not quit enough power to work it hard but good back up & light weight for liming

    Thanks for the info/input , I will try a 91VXL054G , looks like it will be better than the 91VG054G
    If I don't need the power and bar length, of the husky 61 , I use the beaver , cuz that 61 gets heavy pretty quick .
    I'll get a different chain for the old 32cc craftsmen also, cuz It's really light and runs like a top. Was a good buy @ $35
    But ya know what ! I got the chain saw bug ;lol So I think I'm gonna have to fill the other nitch with a 45cc or so :)
