I have the Oregon cs1500. I’ll echo the other reviews in this thread. SS chain works great for crosscut. Not so great for ripping. I bought a “regular” chain from local Stihl dealer for ripping, and switch out chains when ripping. Only takes a moment. Saw has all the oomph it needs. I cut 36” oak logs and it never bogged down.
