A properly sharpened, well maintained chain saw makes your work easier
and it helps prolong the service life of your saw.
Even the best chain saw wears down and becomes dull after a certain period of use. When is it time to sharpen your chains?
- The chain does not pull itself into the cut, it has to be forced to cut by applying pressure to the powerhead.
- When bucking, fine sawdust is pulled from the cut instead of coarse, thick chips.
- Smoking in the cut even though chain lubrication is in order and chain tension is correct.
- The cut wanders in one direction. This is an indication of dull cutters on one side of the chain or irregular cutter lengths.
- The saw "chatters" and "bounces" during the cut. In this case you must check the depth gauge settings.
