The best chainsaws deserve the best hardware

by editor

Oregon Products started from humble beginnings in 1947 as the Oregon Saw Chain Company. Logger and inventor Joseph Buford Cox became an early adopter of bio-mimicry when he designed the first Cox Chipper Chain, based on the C-shaped jaws of a timber beetle larva. Since that time, Oregon Products have continued to deliver innovative products that perform to the highest standard.

Now one of the world’s top saw chain, Oregon Products also supply a range of guide bars, sprocket noses, rim and spur sprockets, and other forestry related products.

Their latest innovation is the new PowerCut™ 70-Series full chisel EXL chain. Using Oregon proprietary cutter technology, the new EXL series chain is their sharpest chain ever out of the box, with a highly durable cutting edge that provides long lasting cutting performance. Designed to reduce the effort required to power through timber, the 70 Series EXL chains feature a reshaped cutter for improved speed and precision.

PowerCut™ 70-Series EXL chain is available to suit bar lengths between 16” and 36” and in 0.50” 0.58” and 0.63” gauge.

The new 731SX professional felling saw is Shindaiwa’s first new saw in the 70cc class in almost 30 years. Replacing the legendary 757, the 731SX shares the same Japanese build quality and reliability as its predecessor. It stands to reason that when Shindaiwa were looking for the best chain to fit to their new 731SX, they went to Oregon Products and the new EXL chain.

The 731XS professional grade 73.5cc 2 stroke engine provides massive torque and is complimented by the fast cutting and reduced effort of the Oregon EXL chain.

The 731XS is compatible with bar sizes from 20″ to 28″ and the Oregon D009 bar mount pattern is used.

Oregon and Shindaiwa products are proudly distributed in Australia by Briggs & Stratton Australia.
