Oregon Bars for Stihl

Oregon makes nice bars for Stihl chainsaws, but finding a compatible bar for your Stihl from Oregon’s massive selection can be difficult. Oregon’s bar finder does not have too many new Stihls, and the bar mount patterns in particular are a real jungle.

I wrote this article to help you in this task. Below, you will find the Stihl-compatible Oregon bars listed in handy tables. The tables are organized by mount, pitch and gauge. I have also done you a favor by excluding bars that are only partly compatible (but which you’ll find on many mount charts).

You may also want to check my earlier article on Stihl bar sizes and my Stihl bar data page for lists of original Stihl bars. NEW: my Stihl saw profiles now include Oregon bar options for each Stihl saw model.

Oregon mounts for Stihl

The table below lists the Stihl bar mounts and a fully compatible Oregon bar mount. It also indicates which saw size class uses the mount.

Oregon has tens of different bar mounts (tail mounts, mount patterns). A few of them work perfect on Stihl saws, but many are semi-compatible: the mounting slot fits the bar studs, but the oiler holes do not line up, for example. Stick to the above mounts if you want to avoid drilling!

Selection overview

The table below lists the Oregon bar codes that fit Stihl saws by mount, pitch and gauge. It also shows “-” if no fitting Oregon bars exist. For detailed tables, scroll further down.

Detailed tables

The Stihl-compatible Oregon bar models and lengths are listed in tables below. The tables are ordered by mount, pitch and gauge.

I have also included a link to Amazon (affiliate) to the bar, compatible Stihl chains and a bar&chain combo whenever possible. Workshoppist.com is an Amazon Associate. As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases.

Oregon A074 (for Stihl 3005)

Oregon has Stihl Small (3005) -compatible bars in the A074 mount in two chain pitches: .325″ and low-profile 3/8P (Picco). (Pitches 1/4″P or 1/4″ are sadly not available in A074.)

3/8″ Low Profile pitch – A074

The Oregon 3/8″ Low Profile pitch (3/8LP) is equivalent to Stihl 3/8″ Picco. The Oregon 3/8LP bars fit most entry level gas-powered Stihls from 1.5 to 2.8hp or 25…45cc (MS 170, 171, 180, 181, 211), compact Farm & Ranch models (MS 193, 194, 201), most electric models (MSE 141…210) and the largest battery Stihl (MSA 220).

The 3/8LP bars come in both .043″ and .050″ gauges and are listed in the two tables below. NB. The 3/8LP does not mix with regular 3/8″.

Oregon has an excellent offering here: lengths from 15″ up to 42″ and both .050″ and .063″ gauge. The two tables below list the models. NB. Though compatible, the longest bars in the tables may be too heavy for your saw to run – please check my bar length vs. cc guidelines.
