Thanks guys thats what i wanted to hear...and a correction on my original post...the chainsaw im using now i have had for 3yrs...this is the 3rd ''chain''...with about nine months on it with filing it 2 or 3 times already....
Do any of you ''stihl'' guys use only ''stihl brand'' chains?? do you ever use any other brand that will fit on a stihl???
With more teeth???
The black locust trees are very hard..not as hard as WW has stated as a hedge apple tree [osage orange]...or a mullberry tree but they are still hard as heck....plus the 5inch thorns on most of em i have been cutting.
Thanks again everyone..looks like i will be plunking down some $$ on at least one more chain....i don't want to burn up the saw, it warrants a new chain and the one im using now as a back up chain....that should do me till mushroom hunting in the spring.Jon~
Thanks for all of your advice guys-much appreciated-
