need help with chain selection
« on: September 09, 2002, 08:10:46 PM »
Good evening everyone,I am looking for a chain for a 60cc echo,fire dept. chainsaw that is used strictly for ventilation and forcible entry.The bar has a 45 degree downward angle to assist in roof projects and is only 16 inches in lenght.We currently are using a chain manufactured in Vancouver B.C that has double depth gauges and has a carbide tipped cutter.The problem we are having is that the carbide tip is seperating after a short time and after a couple of uses needs to be replaced.can anyone recomend a very heavy duty chain that could handle tin roofing, shingles,and the odd nail.The chains we are currently using are priced at around $300 a piece.Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks  DonT

That looked quite useful. I forwarded it to the chief of our FD, and I just wonder if it would be good for root trimming applications? Could be a little spendy.   lw
