Carbide-tipped saw chains are specifically developed for longer cutting edge life, resulting in less frequent sharpening. Carbide chain cuts approximately 4-5 times more wood per sharpen than conventional steel chain.
Maya carbide is designed for medium cutting speed, ideal for cutting both soft and hardwood species and works best in green wood or dry wood with greater than 15% moisture content. It's also suited for cutting dirty or treated wood, burnt logs, stumping etc, but contacting hard objects like dirt, sand, rocks or steel may damage or shorten its lifespan.
Carbide is an extremely hard compound, approximately twice the density of steel. It is best sharpened with discs or files coated with diamond.
