Another small bit of advice.If the saw you finally purchase has a compression release, don't forget to use it every time. Shortly after purchasing my Stihl MS460 I inadvertently forgot the release and upon pulling the cord the resulting kickback almost pulled my arm off.Haven't ever forgotten it after that!

Rollomatic is just their proprietary name for their chains. It isn't anything special necessarily, but I'd just make sure to get the Stihl brand of chain if you buy a spare. Some of the cheaper off-brands suck and may not oil the Stihl bar correctly or adequately.
