The Forester Carbide Insert Chain was developed for longer cutting edge life, resulting in less frequent sharpening. Carbide chain cuts up to 1615 ft² (150m²) of wood before filing would be needed. In contrast a regular chain only cuts on average between 194-215 ft² (18-20m²) of wood before needed filing.


  • Lasts over 3x longer than conventional chains
  • Low-vibration (Note: Does not meet low kickback ANSI)
  • Suited for cutting dirty or treated woods, roots, frozen logs, and hardwoods
  • Tooth is laser welded

Important Information: Carbide Chain is NOT INDESTRUCTIBLE and is only designed to cut wood. It will last up to 3x longer than using a regular chain in the same cut. The end user needs to be aware of a few things.

  1. Please stop using when dull. A dull carbide chain is susceptible to teeth heating up and falling off. This piece of carbide would be in the cut and can damage the rest of your chain.
  2. Ensure cutting wood only. If you hit a foreign object, teeth can break off.
  3. Wood cannot cause damage to a carbide tooth.

    Best Upgrade for my Stihl MS170

    Posted by Frank Schnorbus on 2nd May 2022

    I cut a lot of pinion here in Nevada, and the original .043 gauge 3/8LP chains on my Stihl MS170 do not last long. Since they don't have carbide inserts for .043, I upgraded both my bar and chain to .050 gauge (Bar is SKU KSW1650NR, 16" chain is SKU CBD10SC-55E) carbide insert. What a difference! I can go for several days per chain, instead of 2 chains per day. I had to invest in a diamond wheel for my chain sharpener but it has been well worth it.
