Saw Chain Oregon Features – Saw Chain Low Vibration
Less vibration equals more comfort. We wanted to lessen vibration-induced white finger (VWF), so we created a small space between the saw chain and the guide bar. A lot of the energy gets dissipated by the saw chain, acting as a shock absorber. It never reaches the guide bar, the saw — or most important — the operator. Our low vibration design reduces vibrations by 25% or more.

Filing indicators – New Filing indicator
Your sharpening made easier and more accurate. Special filing marks show the best top-plate angle. Lines make it easier for filing the correct top-plate angle and help maintain equal cutter lengths. Filing indicators show you when cutters have reached the end of their life. Cutters should not be sharpened beyond the line.
Our Blued Components give you high-quality resistance to corrosion with the presence of protective oil. A precise and controlled tempering process results in a blue surface, designating our best-in-class saw chain.
Your chain stays sharper, longer. Oregon electroplates a layer of industrial hard chrome to all our saw chain cutters. Chrome delivers a harder surface and better wear resistance. So you spend more time cutting and less time filing or grinding the chain.
For a longer working saw chain, Oregon induction hardens and quenches all saw chain rivets, delivering a high-quality, load-bearing surface that resists wear and improves strength. Less wear and chain stretch means fewer chain tension adjustments.
