    I bought a small mill attachment and I have a Dolmar 510 with a 20" bar currently, will a 36" bar fit? If so I am looking for where to get one and the correct size. I am not planning on doing anything on a huge scale just trying to cut some mesquite logs down for personal use.

    I can't advise strongly enough against that, and I LOVE Dolmars! Or maybe it's because I love them that I say that... Even if it would the largest bar in that mount I've seen for sale is 28". Still WAY too much bar for that saw. You need a 90+cc saw to pull 36 inches on a mill.

    I figured they might use them out west, I just haven't ran across one. Of course I'm not looking. I felt dirty enough picking up a 24" in K095 a couple weeks ago.

    Yeah I guess some bigish older Dolmars used a small mount for a minute.

    You'll like that 24" on the 6100. I use them for the reach.

    Uh, nahhh...you don't need to be attempting this feat.

    510 and a 36" bar...I've seen some bad pairings and relationships, but this sounds forged straight from the bowels of hell!

    I actually like a longer bar on a 510 than a 5105. But we're talking 20" here lol and only if it's your only saw.

    Ok ya with a 20" bar only gona get about 10" and that is not what I am looking for. I realize that 36" is big I just thought for the few cuts I will be making it might not be too much for the saw. It has lots of power, Lot better than my Stihl 250.

    Who buys a 36" bar, chain, and mill for a "few cuts"? The right tool for the job will make the whole process a lot safer and more enjoyable.

    Ok well more than a few cuts but not going to be doing this daily and I have seen prices of these slabs and they are far more expensive than a new bar and chain. I will get my money back soon.

    Precisely the reason why you should invest in the right powerhead for the job. The difference in ROI is only a few slabs.

    They are trying to tell you, you need....more oil, bigger crank bearings and much more power. I mill plenty. You'd cook that thing with a 20" bar in 14" of wood milling. 24" cutting up to 18" 70cc+ 28" cutting up to 24 80cc+ ect.
    That is with an HD pump and an accessory oil feed.
    Then you can learn chain, stacking and drying wood correctly.

    You won't get big money selling potato chips....

    Plus resawn and the kiln...what about the quality of your wood and the environment you store it in?

    LOL I don't have slabs yet hence forth why i want to get a larger bar and chain to saw some. I wasn't trying to sell 14" slabs. This wasn't a business venture it was for personal use. Hobby. I currently cut and sell firewood on the side to retail stores. Just wanted to try to cut a few slabs for myself.

    70cc would probably do it for a “once in a while” kind of thing. If you’re selling some firewood, it wouldn’t hurt to have a big saw anyway

    70cc of some sort will work for a 36” bar to get 30” wide cuts with a 36” mill. I milled about 800 bd ft with a stihl 046. All of it with a 32-34” bar on it.

    Main problem with this is that no 36" bar will line up for your saw. It will "fit" but the oiling and adjustment holes will be off.

    Now lets be positive,don't want to run off new folks. It may work. If the OP finds a .325 bar and does some heavy grinding for an oiler hole then sets the rakers real high he could get it done.
