Shouldn’t be but a week or so.
I got some stumping to do.
Most shops don’t have a grinder for carbide as the payback sucks compared to regular chain.
A machinist has no shame when it comes to tools.You stand the angle up t to give the tooth some strength.
Demolition and stumping probably have...
I know this is an old thread but I got some carbide cabin for stumping.
Also setting up to grind it. Got a Stihl diamond wheel and an extra grinder to fit it.
Ground a lot of carbide as a Tool and Die maker. So it shan’t be too bad.
I’ll report back when I screw them up.
Ported or unported...... Most dealer issues are the same.
Recoil,plastic,oiling,air leaks........all the same.
Take off the muffler..... Scoring?? Clean or replace. Almost the same. Check the squish.
I've never had trouble with a ported saw at a GOOd Stihl dealer.
