    67cc IIRC? Echo uses the first 2 numbers to indicate cc (size). CS 500 (50cc)

    Yep. I change it weekly or bi weekly. Soaks up oil and when its dirty, I pull it up and slap staple a new piece down. :) Easy peasy

    But how do you keep geese off the bench carpet? I have a few tools and the half the time stay in the box then they will get taken out for a project and set somewhere where they stay forever. Wife got me tool cart a few years ago and tools will live in it for weeks at a time. That's why I pick up that .99 set of screw drivers every few trips to HF . So I have them for all over the place.

    I like that carpet idea. No cleaning involved.

    I've been using a workbench mat the past couple years:

    They come with a variety of brand names from different vendors. And yes, the John Deere model is always a little more expensive.

    Technically, yes, because your chain is traveling 1/2 the distance at the same speed. But in this case "double the RPM" does not mean "double the chain speed" so you will not tear through logs any faster.

    I think a trip to HF is in my near future.

    A shorter bar can give you more cutting power though. Less chain to drag is less friction and can be faster.

    going to a skip tooth chain will also make a saw feel more powerful. less teeth to haul through means less drag more speed. Be aware they tend to stretch more.
