Oregon 27AX Full Skip Micro Chisel chain. Works well on long bars where you wish to keep chain speed higher. Less teeth means less resistance on the powerhead and gives smoother more continuous cutting.
‘A skip chain has fewer cutting teeth than a conventional chain which means it won’t be dragging as many teeth through the wood you’re cutting. Less drag on the chain means less power is needed to cut through the log. That means the motor on your saw runs faster which keeps it in a more efficient power curve. It’s the same principle you use when downshifting a transmission in your truck to go up a steep grade. You get more power by increasing the engine speed. ‘ Steven Gregersen USA
- Oregon 27AX is Oregon’s .404 pitch x .063” gauge Saw Chain which is a heavy-duty high-performance chain for professional users of large saws who prefer the durability and easy maintenance of small-radius Micro-Chisel® cutters.
- Micro-Chisel® cutters have small-radius working corners that cut fast and are easy to sharpen. 27AX is a skip sequence chain and features Oregon OCS-01 steel. This patented chain steel provides greater durability, especially in cold cutting conditions.
- Blued cutters provide superior corrosion resistance and improved strength. Other 27AX features include “X” grind – an enhanced grind geometry that significantly improves out-of-box sharpness with substantial speed improvement in boring and bias (undercut) modes. LubriLink™ tie straps help keep oil where it’s needed – on the chain.
