what kind of chain comes with this saw? full chisel or Simi chisel?

Asked by: bom87
I bought mine from hd rental , used. It came with a square full chisel , and safety links. Which limits the bite. So not a pro full chisel. Sharpen with round file. It pulls through a log like a champ though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mines blue The 64cc makita was bought from tool rental, piston was scored and replaced with a 79cc. The saw is solid, easy to work on as needed, and cuts with certainty. Look no further, 10+ years no regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 6100's big brother I originally bought the 6100, but found out that the 6421 could be upgraded with a 79cc bolt on kit and heavy duty air filter. If you're going to cut larger than 20" trees or planning on using it in a saw mill, then the 6421 is your saw. Otherwise, you'll be happy with the 6100.

Has great power, its a full size saw. Great for felling and bucking. About the same power and size of a stihl ms361. But for less than half the cost. Magnesium case and side cover, tooless air filter, Mine starts on the 3rd pull. And she ripps.
