Long Link Chain Installation
The proper break-in procedure should be followed to ensure long service life.
THE USE OF CLEAN WATER applied on the chain at the drive sprocket is a must. Water polishes the steel where the links rub together. This will cut down any chance of galling in this area. The chain should be run without load for 6 to 8 hours or whatever is practical with a spray of clean water during this break-in period. A failure to properly break in Long Link chain usually produces random galling of the links which causes rapid wear. Mac Chain recommends spraying water on the chain at all time to maintain good chain life.
