Full Skip chain has x1 extra gap between each pair of teeth. This helps keep chain speed higher when using a longer bar with a longer saw. This gives a smooth even feel to milling timber. Full Skip chisel chain that you will struggle to source anywhere else other than here.
New Panther + chain [patent pending]. The + stands for additional line markings on the top plate of the tooth which helps give a visual guide to the angle you are sharpening at but more importantly it helps you judge the tooth length in relation to the other teeth on the chain. One of the hardest things to do with a chainsaw chain [without a guide] is to ensure each tooth is the same length and the same angle as all it’s brothers. If not cutting becomes inconsistent, vibration increases, the teeth that are longer take big bites of the wood and dull faster.
- P stands for Panther
- + stands for Panther Precision sharpening system [or lines on the top plate!]
- 3/8 = self explanatory – it is 3/8 chain
- 063 = gauge of chain is .063[1.6mm]
- FSL = Full Skip Chisel
‘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
