Safety chain has the extra hump ahead of the rakers. It kinda sucks. Anybody else had trouble with it as it wears down? I have ground the safety humps right off and still had grief.
I'll co-sign what Butch said. Id horsewhip my saw dealer if they handed me over that stuff. No semi chisel chain either.
Some safety chain is just that the drive link is the same piece as the raker, there is no extra bump. it isn't as bad as the type with the ramps. I think they claim that such chain has less vibration as well. More than a few folks are probably using safety chain and don't know it. I prefer non-safety myself as well.

When I found a 200T on the shelf this spring it had a 14" bar and safety chain on it. They wanted $605. I told them I wanted a 16" and non safety. They looked for quite a while and then told me I could have it for $575 like it was. Sold. It actually has cut OK so far.
At Big Green we only have two kinds of chain, big safety chain and little safety chain. No skip.half skip, nothing.
Any particular brand and how do you find it cuts?
