Technical Data In English Units
These guidelines are intended to provide a balance between performance and service life. If these guidelines are exceeded, operators must be aware that excessive chain speed or feed force: reduces service life and increases wear, requires extra lubrication and attention to tensioning and sharpening,and increases the incidence of chain breakage and the risk of injury.
