    Have you used Arnold saw chain? It's a lot cheaper than Oregon saw chain. Just wonder how good it is.

    Never heard of it. If you want cheaper chain, get the Woodland Pro from Bailey's.

    If it isn't stihl, husqv, oregon or carlton (baileys is carlton), I would assume it is imported copy. IMO not worth taking a chance on chain life or my safety when good brand names are cheap enough.
    I am always open to newer and better, but not too open to a solution where I don't have a problem.

    looks like the packaging that the cheap junk chains from home depot. poor rivet quality, soft metal. for that price you could buy stihl. and sharpen for many cutting cycles. my body and saw are worth more than the damage from a thrown cain. just my opinion.
