    Typo, it's 3,940 FPM which is "Feet per minute" according to Makita spec sheet. https://www.makitatools.com/products/details/XCU04Z
    Basically 20 meters/second

    I used one loop of archer 3/8 full comp full chisel that was given to me. Dulled faster than normal. Soft cutters the vallorbe files cut it like butter.
    The cutters are big and its definately slow

    Because I think a 56cc saw has no business running a 20" bar but it came with it and I like the reach for certain things.
    Skip has less teeth to sharpen up and I'm working with dirty stuff on the ground too so it will get dull fairly quick and the reach comes in handy there.
    I have no intention of burying it in anything.
    I have a Forester 16" bar for it too that will see more use.

    I have a 18" Husqvarna X series bar and chain for a 340 too, way too long but great for limbing felled trees.

    I posted these in the square grinder thread a while back, but may as well put my 2 cents in here too. I square ground some full chisel 3/8LP .043 gauge Archer full comp for the Makita battery saws. Since there isn't any port work I can do to those saws, I have to do something to improve the performance. Cuts well, holds an edge well enough. Rakers are a little aggressive out of the box on this stuff for the battery saws. Probably wouldn't notice on a gas saw, but there's a lot of chatter. Once I grind them for the second time, the cutting corner is low enough that the raker isn't over feeding it, and it's nice and smooth.

    For the price and the fact that they have full chisel in 3/8LP .043 gauge, I'm happy with the 25' roll I bought. I don't see going through it any time real soon, since I only have 2 saws that run it, and they don't get the run time that my full size saws do, but I'd buy it again.

    I ran prototype stuff two years ago. Now have production product.

    It's faster
    It's smoother
    It takes less power to cut which saves battery life and will give a gas saw more power.

    Glad to see efficient advancements in this tech.
    Would like to see the actual battery times compared between the Oregon and say Archer chain that this thread is about.
    I wonder if it's a big enough difference to matter.

    https://opeforum.com/threads/nano.14433/)

    Recently got some to try on a different battery saw. Will post on that after trying again.

    I recently converted a Makita XCU06 18v 10" top handle to a 10" Nano setup. The customer couldn't believe the difference.

    He would overload the motor with the 10" 90PX setup. With Nano the motor never shutdown and had a big increase increase in battery life.

    Yeah that would be really interesting, whether the more efficient chain chassis (.325 lo-pro) or the more efficient cutter (full chisel) would win.

    I switched my Echo 490 from its original .325 chain to a 3/8lp set up. No solid time numbers but the new 3/8lp set up cuts much faster.

    I will not get Archer chain again until I have a chain grinder. As usual, cheap Chinese stuff requires a bit of finish work before use. I often find Archer gets Chrome where it doesn't belong: on the depth gauges & under the top plate. It's not good when you start filing a chain and realize you have to leave random cutters and DG's dull & unfiled.
