I have an Ingersoll Snocaster that needs a new drive chain. Now, right off I'll tell you over in the Case Forum they swear by all things OE. But . . .         a new drive chain fron Case is $35 for 3 feet. When I checked Farm & Fleet, they cost $11.00 for the cheap stuff (Agrimaster) or $19.00 for the good heavy duty stuff(D.I.D.) for 10 feet​.

 

Is the Case roller chain really made out of gold?

I usually go with the high quality after market items rather than OEM.  Baldwin hydraulic filter $6.  Cub Cadet filter $16+.  Only filter I buy is Baldwin.

Ingersoll likely didn't make chain - they bought it from somewhere.  No sense paying extra to have an Ingersoll label on the box.

I'm with the others - D.I.D. is a premium chain, quite likely better quality than the one in an Ingersoll box.
