If you use a chainsaw at home, or on the farm or ranch, you know how important it is for speed and safety to be using a chain with sharp cutters. Yet cutters can be dulled quickly, even through plain heavy use.

Until now, you've had three choices: replace the chain (expensive); resharpen it yourself by hand (very slow, and difficult to do accurately); or take it to your local chainsaw shop and get back a chain that may or may not be well sharpened.

Great Tool!
Reviewed By:   (Boonton, NJ) 
After years of hand-sharpening and paying a shop to sharpen my many chains, I took the plunge and got this. There are many others available, but this one seems the best in value and function.

The plastic structure does not lend itself to exact repetition of sharpening cut. The clamping device distorts the chain if tightened too much and there is no control to provide a standard tightening torque. The dog that holds the chain in position for sharpening does not clear the grindstone when the chain has been sharpened several times and winds up being ground down by the stone. The motor gets hot when used on a long chain and mine eventually burned out (three seasons). This is ok for limited use.

Great Product

Have not used the wheel yet had to order as the wheel that comes with the grinder would not fit between the raker and the tooth on a 16" Husqvarna brand chain. Did a visual check of the clearance, appears to now clear the raker.

Works Well/Great Value
Reviewed By:   (Grand Blanc, Michigan) 
I purchased the quick-feed version and ordered the smaller grinding; the larger thickness wheel is too large to fit between the rakers and the cutting teeth on the Husqvarna chains. I have sharpened 4 chains and am quite satisfied with the results, it takes a little time to set the adjustments, I wasn’t sure how far I should set the depth. After sharpening the first chain which I did very lightly the results were good, but only for a few logs, took the chain back off and compared it to a new chain, my problem was not going deep enough and sharpening the “gullet” portion of the chain. Sharpened it a second time using a little more depth, reinstalled the chain and it worked better than a new chain. I mounted my unit on a piece of 2x6 board and clamp it to my work bench for use. The only issue I have seen is that the "pusher" can get hung up on the metal channel that guides the chain under the cutting wheel. The video and additional instruction sheet was helpful compared to the sheet you receive with the machine. There were no instructions on how to "dress" the grinding wheel with the included stone. Take your time with setup and visually check the depth on each tooth to make sure the grinding wheel grinds into the gullet portion of the chain. I ordered the machine and wheel separately after I found out the bigger wheel didn’t fit between the teeth on one brand of chain. I felt the shipping costs were a little pricey although they provide a pre-paid return label.

Works Well

I purchased the quick-feed version and smaller grinding wheels as I am using 3/8 pitch (.325) chains on my Jonsered and Craftsman homeowner saws. So far I have sharpened 3 chains and am quite satisfied with the results. I am cleaning up a 7 acre parcel in central Colorado that has a lot of dead aspen and some pine on it. Because much of the wood is on the ground I occasionally hit dirt which dulls the chain rapidly. Per video, I mounted my unit on a piece of 2x6 board and clamp it to my work bench for use. The only issue I have seen is that the "pusher" can get hung up on the metal channel that guides the chain under the cutting wheel. I took a small 3-corner file and slightly tapered the leading edge of this channel so the pusher slides into position without a hitch. This device does not address the raker (depth guage) teeth on the chain. To do a complete job you still need to occasionally file the rakers down with a guide and flat file. Do not forget to do this or your chain will not cut correctly after you sharpen it. After watching the video I had no problems assembling or using the sharpener. I look forward to using it many times over the next few years as I clean up my lot.
