Bar nose ID
Identifying a bar is easy as long as the writing on it is still legible and the paint is intact. The information we need to know is the length (usually in inches) and the bar gauge (which will correspond to the chain gauge). If the bar has a nose sprocket it is useful to know the nose sprocket pitch)
Bar ID Example 1
Stihl Picco bar 10″ Type Rollamatic E Mini Light.
Bar ID Example 2
Oregon bar 173RNFE031. The main thing to realise is the first 2 numbers refer to the bar length in this case 17″. The third number relates to the bar gauge .063″ (or 1.6mm).
