Running Skip chain on Firewood Processor ?

Recommended Posts

Ok appreciate this is a bit unusual.... iam contemplating some mods to the chainsaw bar and chain, iam thinking of running a longer bar, question is would running skip or semi skip help it to avoid bogging down and keep the tip speed up on larger diameter timber than what it’s designed for ? it does produce huge amounts of saw dust / chips and i do wonder if having more space between cutters would help, would welcome your thoughts keep on chopping

On my little Farmi when cutting larger dry wood is leave the rakers a touch long to avoid it taking too big a bite. Stops it bogging down. Easy experiment
