Frequently Asked Questions
What makes PowerSharp® saw chain different?
The PowerSharp® saw chain has 3 key features that make it different from all other saw chain. First, the cutters are top sharpening, making it possible to sharpen them with a simple attachment. Second, a diamond-coated dresser link “dresses” the sharpening stone, resurfacing it for optimum honing angles. Finally, the cutters work together with the depth gauges and guidance drive links to stabilize the cutter as it contacts the stone, ensuring a consistent edge across the entire cutting surface.
How long does it take to sharpen a chain with the PowerSharp® system?
It takes as little as 3 seconds to sharpen the chain, although extreme dulling may require more sharpening. Sharpen for 3-5 seconds, then make a test cut.
How many times can I sharpen the chain?
The PowerSharp® saw chain can be sharpened up to 15 times, depending on conditions.
How do I know if my saw chain is dull?
A sharp chain will cut large-size chips; a chain that is dull will create sawdust. It's time to sharpen when you're having to push on the chain saw or the chain saw is no longer self-feeding.
How often do I need to replace the stone?
Replace the sharpening stone with every new saw chain. The two are packaged together to make it easier to remember to replace both at the same time.
