New Oregon EXL Chain - game changer?

Recommended Posts

Oregon seem to be upping their game in terms of chain making. They started with 95TXL but they now have EXL which is the 3/8 range.

 

This is not simply a gimmick or new angle on an old product - materials are upgraded, cutting out of the box is improved, stay sharp is better - in short a betetr product [which I haven't tried yet] - but these could well be the best chainsaw chain in the world.

 

What would tempt you into trying some? What about the dedicated Stihl folk out there? How about a dabble and then post your findings here?

 

Available as 95TXL [.325 .050] and 73EXL [3/8 .058] and 75EXL[3/8 .063] but very very soon in 73EXJ[3/8 .058 - full skip] and 75EXJ[3/8 .063 - full skip].

 

Type in EXL in the search box at the top of chainsawbars to find the options. Plus we are doing an offer on LPX the old style version an all!

Yep - they do look really good and the EXL on 3/8 has a brand new factory grind that mimics the same edge you get with a round file.

 

I'm itching to try one!

Putting my cynics hat on, that looks like every other full chisel chain

Once you've got it in your hands it def looks different and more high tech.

 

Proof is in the pudding so I guess if you don't try you'll never know. We'll be doing an offer on it this weekend I expect so be good to have some feedback from some cynics out there!

 

What sort of offer would tempt you to try it?

If you have a chain that will fit either a 13" echo 450 or a 15" stihl 362 i will have one to try.
It can have a good spanking in the woods next week and i will let you. know
