Realized that the electric chainsaw I was using was just not cutting it!! Was in the middle of a laurel hedge reduction with interior branches as thick as a tree limb...many 4 to 6 feet tall. Had to hold the saw horizontally above my head to cut at the required height and because the branches moved it became super difficult to cut through without applying pressure. Even with pressure the saw took forever to cut through the wood. Bought this chain, installed it in minutes and restarted the project. The chain ripped through each branch like a hot knife through butter. Very pleased with the product and the timeliness of delivery.
