Question about Garden
The chain pitch, gauge and number of drive links must all match to function safely. The following links should answer any questions you have (new chains often stretch quite a bit; please keep an eye on the tension).
Oregon Bar & Chain Selector
The easiest and often least expensive method is to take your existing chain (needed for a pattern) to a local chainsaw retailer (not big box store). Once you have these a chain may often be found in a local home center or hardware. Chains in these facilities are usually the least aggressive available. If you have some experience and utilize PPE you may find a chain with a higher possibility of kick back may be more satisfactory.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Hi, all you need is to count the number of blades. To do this I take the chain off, lay it on a flat serface and count them in two's. Once you have this its just a case of ordering a new one.
