How To Identify When To Sharpen A Chain Saw Chain

  • The chainsaw is one of the most versatile tools around. They are capable of various tasks such as trimming heavy bushes, trimming branches and limbs, cutting down trees and removing stumps. Although your tool is powerful, the real muscle behind it is a sharp chainsaw chain. Without sharp chains, felling timber will become exhausting, inefficient, and completely dangerous. Ever wondered how to identify when to sharpen a chain saw chain? The following are recommendations from the chain saw manufacturer.

    Poor cutting performance. The sharp chainsaw chain easily penetrates the wood. When the teeth of the chain are sharp, the tool pulls itself into the wood to be cut and spit out long, chip-like sawdust as it passes through the object. If you find yourself trying to force the tool through the wood by applying pressure on the tool, and find that the chain is spraying sawdust instead of sawdust, then your chain needs to be sharpened well.

    smokes. The performance of the chainsaw should be smooth and smooth. Of course, a lot of friction occurs during the cutting process, but if your tool's chain lubrication system is working and the tension of the chain is adjusted correctly, your chain saw should be able to handle this friction perfectly. If you pay attention to smoke leaking from the incision, it is because the teeth may be dull and cause too much friction and heat buildup. This not only affects performance, but also damages the chainsaw. If you see smoke, it's time to make the chain sharper.

    Uneven cutting and unstable performance. The sharp chain saw cuts cleanly and accurately, and can pull itself smoothly through the woods. If the cut you are going to make is deeper on one side, it is because the tooth is not flat or one side is blunt. In addition, please pay attention to the "feel" of the tool during operation. If it bounces back to you, or makes a rattling noise that prevents you from making accurate cuts, you may need to run in or even replace the chain.
