Micro chisel chain. For universal use. Excellent control and high cutting performance. Relatively easy to sharpen. Uses include felling, bucking, limbing and all sawing work in agriculture, construction and forestry.
Why use Micro Chisel chain – isn’t chisel chain faster? Yes chisel chain IS faster cutting BUT comes at a price – it will:
- Dull faster due to the very small sharp working corner
- It is harder to get exactly sharp as your sharpening technique has got to be good in order to replicate the precise corner geometry
- Stay sharp time is reduced particularly in any gritty or very hard timer
Chisel chain is more designed for fast production cutting in softwoods – is that the work you are doing? If not then most of the time it is not for you.
If in doubt micro chisel chain or semi chisel chain is always the better bet – easier to sharpen, stays sharp for longer and modern micro chisel still cuts very rapidly.
