Cutting Tips

Best Practices 1. Saw chain is made to cut only one thing: wood. Do not use saw chain to cut other materials. 2. Never let your saw chain contact rocks or dirt during operation. Dirt may seem soft. In fact, dirt is extremely abrasive and will wear away your saw chain’s vital chrome plating in less than a second. 3. Never force dull saw chain to cut. When it is sharp, saw chain is designed to feed itself into the wood, and needs only light pressure to cut efficiently. 4. Cutting efficiency may be determined by the type of sawdust your chainsaw is producing. Dull saw chain produces fine wood dust, which can clog your chainsaw’s air filter. Sharp saw chain produces larger wood chips.
