Electric (240 or 12v) chain sharpeners

Recommended Posts

Doing a bit of removal on stone buildings and adjacent sites (ancient monuments) and hitting the odd stone or three (usually hidden inside growth before you start).

Obviously this can cause a fair bit of damage to chain. I’m happy to sharpen normally but don’t relish taking a few mm off cutters on a more regular basis. (Hate sharpening in the field anyway)

So any ideas on electric sharpeners?

 

Thanks in advance

Pick up one of the Lidl ones next time they come up. Not the last word in classy engineering but with a gentle touch it's more than capable of doing a quality consistent job on your chains. If your heavy handed look to one of the more heavily engineered models.

RobD does one (Chainsawbarsdirect) of the 12v Granberg grinders (as per link below) visit the site and there is a video to watch too. Was recommended by someone recently, cant remember who 🤦🏼‍♂️(even though i commented on it!) i’m going to order one in the very near future.

I'll second Ratman. I've had the Granberg for a few years and it keeps chain in very precise nick. All cutters the same length etc. The diamond stones are well worth the extra cost too.

Me too have two Granbergs set up for different chains with diamond stones - easy for a quick sharpen in the field or a more precise one on the bench.
