Depth gauge too high Chain loses self feeding characteristics and extra pressure is required to get the chain to cut. Leads to rapid wear on all components. Gives excessive vibration and chain chatter. Uneven depth gauge setting Sawchain sharpening Check depth gauges every 3rd or 4th sharpen. In order to maintain maximum performance throughout the entire life of the chain, the depth gauges must be lowered progressively as the cutter’s length is reduced. The potential for kick-back is reduced by rounding the front of the depth gauge.
