The STIHL DUROMATIC® E guide bar is a rugged bar made from a solid billet of the highest quality steel and is cut by laser for consistent quality and durability. Instead of a replaceable sprocket tip, its nose is reinforced with a very hard steel alloy (which is also used in the aerospace industry) and is laser-welded in place for consistent quality, durability and high wear resistance.
Applications: A special-purpose bar for high-performance professional woodcutting with heavy-duty saws. An excellent bar for dirty or abrasive cutting conditions and frequent plunge-cutting applications.
STIHL recommends using low-kickback, green-labeled chain and green-labeled reduced-kickback bars on all powerheads.
Note: The actual listed guide bar length can vary from the effective cutting length based on which powerhead it is installed on.
