Some bars have an extra set of numbers in the middle which will tell the pitch of the chain. These are typically on the Husqvarna and Poulan bar mounts, due to them fitting multiple brands. On this Husqvarna bar “HJ20385072FP”, the “38” means that it has a 3/8” Pitch. Not all bars will designate pitch on the stamp.
Typically a chainsaw with a shorter bar around 14” and smaller is enough for property maintenance, trimming, pruning, and cutting down broken tree limbs. On the other hand, cutting down small trees, thick branches, and cleaning up storm damage will need a longer bar around 16”-20” to make the job easier and safer.

You`ll typically find somewhere between 66 and 72 drive links on a chainsaw chain. 16-inch bars typically have 66 drive links, while 18-inch bars usually have 72. Wear thick safety gloves during this step to minimize your risk of injury.
