The standard version of the STIHL ROLLOMATIC® Ematic™ bar consists of three electrically welded metal plates (laminated guide bars).

Product Description

The ROLLOMATIC® E is a general-grade laminated guide bar made of high-grade steel. Consisting of three electrically welded metal plates, it is lightweight, yet provides great stability. A sprocket is incorporated in the nose of the bar that carries the saw chain from the top to the bottom of the bar. This not only reduces wear, but also enables the bar nose to be made considerably narrower. This type of construction is an advantage where extensive use is made of the bar nose (i.e. limbing and boring). All STIHL ROLLOMATIC® bars designed with a narrow nose help reduce kickback tendencies. And the star-shaped sprocket can be replaced several times before the whole bar is due for replacement, increasing the service life of the bar.

Applications: All-around guide bar suitable for small to medium-duty chainsaws. Typically, this bar is not used by professional operators.

STIHL recommends using low-kickback, green-labeled chain and green-labeled reduced-kickback bars on all powerheads.

Note: The actual listed guide bar length can vary from the effective cutting length depending upon which powerhead it is installed.


STIHL ROLLOMATIC® E Standard is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The standard in bars A great bar that holds up to medium to heavy use well. The standard to measure other manufacturers products. Been using these for years with no issues. None.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20” Rollomatic on MS661 Pro Saw So in the description it lists this bar for small to medium machines. I’m running it on the 2nd to the biggest saw STIHL makes with no issues. I bought a 20” Rollomatic E Standard in order to spare the miles on my ES Light and RSK chains for break in and for dirty cutting and clean up to keep the cost down and more availability. I’m very impressed with the bar especially for the cost! I’ve cut all day breaking in the 91cc saw and not even the paint is smudged! I’m running Stihl Platinum Bar and Chain Lubricant through it and it still looks new!! Looks like this one is a winner. It is heavier then the Light Weight ES bar but the cost is much lower as well. Great Value for the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbs up Good bar. No real complaints about it especially for a it comes with the saw bar. I will be upgrading to ES bar eventually though because why not get the upgrade

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bar Stand Up To Fire! While I prefer the ES bars on biģger saws, the Rollomatic E bars are best choice on the Farm and Ranch and Homeowner lines. Long lasting quality, lighter weight at a good price. Run E bars on MS 271 Farm Boss, MS 250 and 028s. I got an 028 salvaged from a fire. Still runs strong and the Rollomatic bar and sproket nose run smooth as new even with blistered paint and plastics!!! Get that from a big box saw or imported bar..I don't think so.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good design, soft metal Burrs faster than most bars, even Chinese ones. This surprised me. Then again, your chain may last longer, or not. This bar is not for professional use, a disappointment. It lags behind other more affordable bars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best laminated bar built in The USA . Top quilaty beats brand O hands down. Been using this 18" .325 bar on a MS 250 and it cuts very straight in Oak and Loctus. Cut a couple of truck loads of fire wood. Haven't even skuffed the paint on the bar . Or smeered the logo. You will have to seriously blunder to creese this bar. Wish I could run them on my other brand saws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only one I buy for my 046 On only my second 28" bar for my 2001 046. I cut about 6-7 cords of firewood a year. Seem to hold up well. Only replaced first one as one of the rails got a pinch in it from felling.
