Shindaiwa 550 Bar & Chain Combo - General Information

The chain cutter‹??s job is to cut the wood efficiently in a single pass as the cutter rides in the bar. The cutters are made of superior quality high strength chrome-moly steel. The cutters can be a either a full chisel square corner cutter or a semi-chisel cutter. For top performance and fast cutting chain speed, use chisel chain. The chisel chain is a top performing chain that severs the wood fibers fast and effectively. If the wood is dirty or the conditions are not favorable, use the semi chisel chain for reliability, durability and longer use between chain sharpening.

The Shindaiwa 550 bar may need periodic maintenance. If the rails are sharp or rolled over, they will need to be dressed up by removing the rolled edge with a file, a bar rail dresser, or a hand grinder to remove the rolled edge and true the bar rail to be square and true again.

The Shindaiwa 550 chain needs to be sharp to cut wood fast. Forcing the chain to cut can cause premature wear on the bar rails and stretch the chain. When the chain is sharp, you will get wood chips and the saw will feed itself into the wood without using force to make it cut. A dull chain will produce dust and maybe some chips, the dust will clog up the air filter and might pass right through the air filter and damage the engine. Another consequence could be overheating the engine resulting in premature engine failure.

Remember, the best saw to cut wood with should have a good sharp chain and good bar to guide the chain. That is why we recommend buying our Shindaiwa 550 Bar & Chain Combo so you have both of the critical ingredients to fast cutting!
