Stihl Rapid Hexa file
« on: June 06, 2021, 03:37:34 pm »
Thread from Chainsaw Repair group FB

You know all these new X-cut style chains. I even noticed my Holz chain has this type of look. I guess stihl has a file to recreate it too.
Seems to copy the husky X-cut profile?   Pics from Willard.

Never seen that before but it looks like it would cut pretty good.

Kevin, thanks for looking into this Hexa file.
I'm a Facebook friend of the guy down under too. I won't bother messaging him for the part #. It will eventually show up here in North America. My relatives saw it somewhere in Norway but couldn't get a # from them.
Looks like a great concept as it works very well on the Husqvarna X Cut chain. But it appears there is no X Cut file to maintain it, only through a grinder.
Great cutter profile for Timbersports andveven for a work chain. Easy as using a round file.
Only thing needed as I can see is a file guide to clamp onto this hexa file to keep consistency in all the cutters.
