8 wood logs in 50 seconds. Victar is the best chainsaw for industrial application

The peat factory “Sokol” recommends:

Stihl saw is not applicable for harvesting of stumps. Though rotation is enough but the chain is soiled and the saw stops and the chain can’t be rotated. Thanks to rotation or a wider slot, I don’t know exactly, Victar saw throws out the soil and the saw continues to work effectively.

– So, how many logs does that make?

8 wood logs in 50 seconds

1 wood log = 6,3 seconds

Victar is built to last a lifetime. It can operate 24 hours at a temperature of 50 degrees below zero under severe conditions.

I had been working with these chainsaws from 1982 to 2010. They were called simply EPCH-3 (ЭПЧ-3) then. I know that now they produce more advanced version with a gear. We had a rotor with a gear-wheel together, teeth were straight.

The saws are almost wear-free if you take care of them. We used them all week on three-shift basis, the only off day was Sunday.

There was around 50 degrees of frost in the winter, before working we brought a cross-cutter in a building, warmed, and then he cut timber very quickly (if you leave the saw in the frost, machine oil becomes like modeling clay; at those time we didn’t have the oil for such temperatures). I think that the saw’s motor has a high quality and, as it mentioned before, it is necessary to care for bearings and an impeller of airflow. If an operator knows his stuff, he will send the saw to repairs when he notices some faults like abnormal noise and motor heating. Bad operators sent it to repairs when it was useless: the motor was burnt, the bearings got stuck, the impeller was broken and workless.

The Victar chansaw has a high productivity; it allows to process from 150 to 190 cubic meters of wood a day. We’ve been using it since 2003. Before that we used Stihl-361 gas chainsaw.

I am the Head of Woodroom at plywood factory (Invest Forest) in Mari El Republic. We apply Victar chansaw for cross-cutting of plywood. The Victar chansaw has a high productivity; it allows to process from 150 to 190 cubic meters of wood a day. We’ve been using it since 2003. Before that we used Stihl-361 gas chainsaw.

We have had the experience of using Victar chansaw at the temperatures of 36° above zero and 35° below zero. We didn’t have any problems even during hours of cutting. The saw Victar chansaw had been working 15,5 hours per day (two-shift) till April. From April we started using the saw 22 hours per day i.e. three-shift working. We didn’t refuse to use Stihl saw, but it is a plan B for us now in the case of Victar chansaw breakdown.
