.404 "high tooth" chisel chain
« on: March 24, 2013, 07:06:35 pm »
I've been away from competiting in timbersports for some time now ,so I'm not up on the latest advancements in the sport lately.

Can anyone post a few pics and give a little information on this "high top .404 chisel sawchain?
 
I have about 30 feet left on the roll of some old Oregon 50AL .404-.050 chisel bit chain, I'm thinking about converting my bikesaw over to this chain, but I'm wandering what this "high tooth " .404 sawchain is all about.

Simon Bertrand sales it. He is here too.

I know of Ed Heard EHP and Dennis Cahoon DC trying the high tooth.

 So maybe one of those guys can show a pic or tell you more.

From reading rakers are pretty darn low already even when you start taking the tooth back.

Bump.
Found my old thread with Bertrand's pic of the .404 high tooth.
Definitely not a Comfort chain with the old school heel.
Now I wonder if he still has some loops for sale?

I wonder if Stihl Timbersports had this chain made up in China?
Doesn't appear to have a legit Stihl logo on the cutter.
 I've seen Chinese chain before in different pitches with the blued cutter and genuine looking Oil O Matic drive links.
