Has nothing to do with what model of chainsaw, but with the 16" chain. Just go to your local small engine shop and pick up one of the kits, or do what I do for the price, and just pick up a new chain, and if you have had the guide bar for a while, replace it also. I have the same model, and just opted for getting a new chain when I need it, vs. sharpening, due to I use the carbide tipped chains.

For cutting very hard woods. I picked it up locally at one of our farm stores. It is the same chain used by fire fighters on their saws.
