/ Best Chainsaw Sharpener under $300 #1
That skip link square ground chain is fun to play with. And I am not too bad at hand filing it either. definitely not for everybody. people that can't hand file with a round file shouldn't even touch this stuff. And unless you are doing large volume of cutting not worth the $1900 for the electric sharpener.Off the saw means a stand alone chain grinder. Many available, from a cheaop HF grinder to an expensive Stihl grinder and everything in between.
Myself, I sharpen my chains on the saw using a Timberline sharpener with a Tungsten Carbide cutter or hand file them (and cut the rakers) using the Stihl guide tool. Only exception to that is the skip tooth square cutter chain on my 075 Stihl. That has to be hand filed all the time.
All depends on the depth of your wallet and what you want to achieve.
So I'd recommend investing in a good hand filing system (PFERD, Stihl) and then an oregon bench mount grinder.What would you recommend?
