Chisel Chain
« on: January 04, 2013, 08:01:58 PM »

Has anyone used Chisel saw Chain before? If so, how does it compare to the standard chain?

im not sure from the pic but when my younger brother in law cut wood to sell he used something he called "square cut" chain (looked like your pic i think) he said it cut faster but dulled sooner. he bought this chain by the roll and made his own so he took a hand full of chains with him and just changed them in the bush and resharpened them later. (stillnot sure if that is the same chain or not)

I've seen some of the the square files that you would use to sharpen the chain with. I've been contemplating going and buying a chain just to try it out.

Full chisel chains are 100x better. They are a little more likely to kick back than safety chains but its worth it.

Square tooth all the way can kick back but not too bad
