A friend, now departed unfortunately, actually fitted a 36” blade to his chainsaw and chrome plated the bar.

This saw was a one of creation. You can’t just buy a saw like this. It is a Stihl 066 magnum. This saw was built and chromed out by a dealer in Ca. It had a custom built 36” bar. these saws were built from 1987 to 1996.

From memory he had a ripping chain fitted and experieced no problems with it stalling or bogging down.

I think I have a picture of him with it somewhere if you are interested.
