    Oh heck no. There is a good bit of Husky stuff here running .058 but near everything else is .050 except Stihl .325 which is .063 99% of the time.

    .058 needs to go away. Soon.

    Some of the old Mac info I've seen in the past & more recently seems to always mention .058 gauge,seems pretty obsolete to me.Rarely see it for sale online & never seen it sold locally either.
  3. All but one of the husky's I've had have been .058. 3/8 and .325.

    The stihls have been .050 3/8 or .063 .325

    Ordered two rslk chains ( 72 &84 dl ) ,and an rsk 84 dl yesterday . I've got to find a better dealer .:) I had the P/N s ,and the parts guy wanted to argue that they weren't right . So, he farted about for 30 minutes looking for the #s until I told himTo punch in the #s I gave him . Amazingly the chains I wanted showed up on the computer ! :) they should be in late next week .
