As usual, most chains are affected by problems brought about by frictional forces. To ensure that the system is harmoniously developed, the chain is fitted with an automatic oil applier to keep a consistent and desirable application of oil throughout the cutting process.

We put much emphasis on oil because it is what contributes to the equipment’s durability. All users are requested to keep an eye on oil consumption, to ensure that the refilling is done frequently. Moreover, the oil tank is translucent for clear vision of the oil level in the tank.
