The Black and Decker is a model CS1518, the Oregon is a model CS1500. Coincidence? I think not. I think they were both made by the same manufacturer, and then resold by the individual companies. But, there might be differences that you cannot see from the pictures. One might have larger bearings, the other might have metal reinforcements, the only way to tell is to dismantle the two saws, side-by-side. I am very happy with my purchase of the Oregon CS1500, and I think it will probably last a long while with appropriate care. The Oregon does have a different type of saw chain, so cutting will be slightly different. It is possible to install a standard chain on the Oregon, but why bother. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If you were satisfied with the operation and performance of the Black and Decker, then I think you will be very happy with the Oregon.

Thank you for contacting Oregon, Diane. A guideline to consider is to use a bar that is no more than than two inches longer than the diameter of what you need to cut. For instance, if you need to cut a tree that is 16” across, it is recommended to use a bar that is no longer than 18”.
