Maya Chain - who has tried it and what did you think?

Recommended Posts

We've sold a few Maya chains now. I've tried using them and found them to be pretty good - quite hard to distinguish between them or Stihl and Oregon but would be interested to hear others feedback.



Had this from one customer Sam Barnes who liked it.


Maya 3/8 .063 chain

Stihl MS361 with 18” Sugi-Hara bar


I thought I’d give this chain a go as there wasn’t much to lose for the price at nearly half what most other chains are costing.

The first Maya chain I got I used on some heavy coppicing so it took quite a beating, hitting stones and soil through out the day so I didn’t hold out much hope that the cheap chain would have any use left after that. However I was amazed that just a few strokes with a file the chain was as good as new! The teeth had stood up well to the stones and kept a good edge through the dirt and soil trapped between the hazel stools.

This chain lasted me another 3 weeks of felling and cross cutting and yet more hazel coppicing and still continued to file back to a razor sharp edge. I have been using them ever since for forestry and it rips though any wood just as any other chain would, holds its edge for just as long and doesn’t stretch any quicker. Overall I think its great value for money and haven’t got a bad word to say about the Maya chain.

We are thinking we may enlarge the range of Maya chain to add some chisel chain in as well....
