Which Chainsaw Sharpener Machine?

Recommended Posts

Which Quality Chainsaw Sharpener Machine are people using?

 

I have a number of different makes (Stihl/Husky/Oregon) and sized chains and want a good quality accurate machine for doing the sharpening.

 

I have been looking at the Oregon 620-230... Whats people views on this machine or what other machines should I look at?

Stihl HOS grinder is what I use. But they've stopped selling them I believe.
The stihl USG is the one they sell now.
It's better as you can sharpen other tools too.
But it's rather expensive.
Make sure you get a solid metal frame model, as the cheap plastic ones are complete shiiite.

A round file!! I bought one a few years ago. The portek chain master ultra 3 I think. I had to make adjustments to the bloody thing to make it work. It's a pain in the arse, then u need to deburr. Just use a round file,👍

i usually use a file but get some damage with chains with metal  in wood or stones or sand in trees  low to ground so i got a ex forestry commission one from a roup and it a 533 ax  reversible motor from the 1990's , needed a bit of fettling but its great , but each to their  own really , depends on how much use the chains get , but mainly due to damage i use the oregon 533  and a file in use

I like both the grandberg and the oregon 12 volt to bring back rocked chains in a flash. CSB have the grandbergs.
