Do you have a blade that will make more than 10 cuts before going dull. Cutting Post Oak.

I have the 14" chainsaw. I own 13.31 acres in Oklahoma and I am clearing 20 trees around the cabin. I can get about 10 cuts before the blade dulls to the point I am burning the wood vs cutting the wood. I have tried the original blade, an Echo, and the Oregon blades with similar results. Is there a professional blade for this saw?

I believe Ego chain saws use Oregon chains. I think you can use any chain that is the correct size. You just need to find one suited to the hardness of the wood you're trying to cut.

I spent an entire afternoon recently using the pole saw to cut up some limbs from another type of oak tree with no sign of the chain dulling. I think you're right, you're going to need to seek out a professional-grade chain in the correct size.
