I use Oregon bars and chains. The bar I usually order is a Power Match Plus except for the old Mac I have and it is just a Power Match. For normal chains I order LPX or LGX and for rippers I order 72RD.

My boss has a Stihl 031 and he’s put 2 bars and 6 chains on it in a year. I’ve put 2 bars and 3 chains on 2 saws in a year.
He uses a power sharpener though and that wears more of the chain than needed. I use a Greenberg saw file guide (108a) and it takes about the same amount of time to sharpen by hand.
