Bar sizing on an Echo saw

How big of bar can I put on a Echo chain saw Model# 452vl. I think I have a 16 inch on it already and I was wondering if could put a thinner sized chain on it like on my Stihl saw to make a smaller cut in the log?

There are lots of different sized chains and bars out there. Some chains might fit your bar and sprocket and some won't. You need to take it to a saw shop and let them see what chains they have that will be compatible with your saw.
