MWL vs. SWL

Hi,

What does MWL in relation to G70 chain mean? Also, how is this different than SWL?

Stu,

I can't any information on MWL on that or any other site. Is it MINIMUM working load? MAXIMUM working load? MEAN working load? MEDIAN working load?

Re: MWL vs. SWL

I always thought that Maximum Working Load was synonymous with Safe Working Load or Working Load Limit. For high test chain this is 25% of Minimum Breaking Load of new chain. For BBB this is 33% of Minimum Breaking Load.
