    Today, I tried to kill my new chain. The new VX chain did awesome! I had my 85 F-250 loaded down heavy (@2ft over cab). I went thru a gallon of gas and the chain kept on cutting (lodge pole pine). When I go home, I decide to hit that nasty tamarack that killed my factory chain in a couple of cuts. This chain ate it up like it was butter and kept on going :coolsmile:

    Tamarack or tamarisk, I have been told either name. It grow in washes, what we call dried up streams that only run when it rains. Lots of silica and dirt in the wood.

    In the northern climes, tamarack is the same thing as larch.
