Has anyone tried the silvey square ground chain like the chainsaw guy and buckin billy use?

Yes. I felled trees in Canada with it. Its kin leathel.

The chains were sharpened on a machine though,never saw one get hand filed.

Make sure you buy the correct bar to go with the 95TXL as it wont work with the standard husky bar, is a 1.3mm gauge as opposed to the 1.5mm on the husky bar.


Or (shameless plug) buy this package below. The new husky x-cut chain is very similar and has all the same great features to the oregon 95TXL and we have had nothing but great feedback on it.


Husqvarna X-force bar and X-cut chain package deal.

What ever you are "recommended" you will have to be able to sharpen it, so, how are you on that front ? What are you cutting ? I've used square ground and I can file that by hand but the timber has to be clean - moss covered dusty stuff will just take the edge. Square is with out any question best machine done. In support of Skyland the X-cut seems to be in demand at least here.
