Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Yes, your saw can be easily fitted with the chisel chain without any changes other than just the chain. No bar or sprocket changes needed in this case. All that you need is to replace the current chain with an Oregon 72LGX072G or 72LPX072G, both of these chains are chisel tooth and will work on your machine. The chains may or may not have the X designation on them depending on how long the chain has been on the shelf.

Thank you for choosing to use our services.
