    The safety rakers only take effect as the chain rounds the tip, and will hamper plunge cutting performance. They should have absolutely no effect on cutting along the flat edge of the bar.

    This is a very common misconception (we did ten rounds in another thread recently) but you can verify this simply by examining the chain closely. The depth rakers should be coming in contact with the wood before the safety rakers when the chain is on the long edge of the bar. The safety rakers only stick past the depth rakers as the chain goes around the tip.

    s219 you do know what Vanguard chain looks like right? The safety part in on the raker itself. Not separate like other chains.

    Yeah I still have my Solo 637 with maybe 5 tanks of fuel through it. Wasn't that impressed with it myself.

    SHoot, I got that mixed up -- I was thinking about the R series Oregon, but Vanguard is D series. According to my Oregon pocket guide, that should be much closer to a non-safety chain than R series (which has separate safety rakers).
