    I like the 24" on my 066 have the 32" but it is nose heavy and only use it on wood bigger than 24" It looks like you may not be getting enough bar oil and the heat is making the paint come off the bar faster.The big saws are harder on bars I find. I had a problem with stalling on my saw and the cylinder bolts had worked loose,lucky I did not burn it up.

    Worst part I ended up using some chains my FIL gave me..Now he has been logging for 40 years and they say he can file better then a grinder but not one chain would cut strait....I dropped them off at the shop today will get them back tomorrow..............

    Oak...Biggest one I ever did see...When they first moved in it was all there and it was massive.....

    I need info on WoodlandPro 30RC Chainsaw Chain...The Carlton site does not list 30RC...

    http://www.sawchain.com/products/productdescChain.asp?SeriesID=1

    Does it have the Bumper link to reduce kickback???

    Or is it Ramped depth gauge for reduced kickback????

    If this is the stuff you are using a pic or to would be great...

    Thanks,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    thats cut at 30 degrees to make it a ripping chain you just change the angle to 10 degrees and that chain is the woodland 30rc series and rakers need to be dead on.

    the bigger trees get curly some curlier than others but it can reek havoc on even the biggest saws.

    Ok just got off my butt and ordered a 28" Carlton bar and a 91 dl Carlton chain...

    When I called Bailey's the man on the phone kept saying that bar is a steal it's a steal...

    I think you will be happy with it and that beast needs at least a 28in. to be in the zone. I think the most over rated bar is the gb bars the paint is gone after a tank of gas. And I paid 50.00 fot that 20in. bar.
