So you’re in the market for a new chainsaw chain? Great! I’m here to help. Chainsaw chains are one of those things that most people don’t want to spend any money on, but they should. Using quality chains can drastically improve your cutting experience and save you time and money in the long run. In this blog post, I will give you 2 great options for chainsaw chains so that you can find something perfect for your saw’s needs.
Factors to Consider When Buying Chains
When you are out there shopping for chainsaw chains, the first thing to consider is what type of chain your saw takes. You can find traditional cutting teeth or a cross-cut design with fewer teeth on the front. This matters because each one will work better depending on how thick and tough your material is: The more teeth, the faster the cutting process, but the more power it will take. It’s a matter of finding what works best for your situation.
Personally I find that chains with fewer teeth work better for tougher jobs like felling trees and large branches while those with lots of teeth are great for trimming smaller pieces or whittling down wood to make furniture. The other factor is whether you want a two-stroke chain saw or one that uses gas/oil mixture – each has its advantages as well as disadvantages!
Other Considerations: What type of material do you plan on using? How often does this tool get used? Is there an issue where the chain keeps getting stuck in the blade coverings? These all can play into which chainsaw chain is best for you.
