I have a 20” and 24” bar for my 460 but with a lot of cutting blowdowns looming, and a huge ash that came down a month prior I decided to get myself a Fathers Day treat. 28” Forester platinum bar and 2 full chisel skip chains for $120 I think that’s a pretty good deal. Might get to try it out this week. Made in PA too

Those Forester bars are a solid heavy bar. I have a 24” that I use when I mill. I think if I remember correctly it weighs a bit more than my 24” GB bars. I was unaware that they were made in PA.

Good variety, cheaper than owning 2 extra saws

Chainsaws can be addicting can't they? Nice looking bar, I'm sure that'll tackle the big boys for you.
Chainsaws can be addicting.. as a matter of fact.. The whole burning wood thing is.. never in my life would I have thought I'd have 3 woodsheds, 4 saws, 2 splitters, 12 cords of wood, 5 cord of log lenth, and a bobcat sitting on my property.. let alone teaching my neighbor how to make a solar kiln.. its like I'm obsessed.. or something..

Oh yeah they can! I’m anxious to give the new bar a test run but with working 6 days a week and it being swampass hot I’ll wait until it cools down some. Those trees will be there when I get time to cut them up
