Oregon 620 sharpener?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

Anyone got any experience with this sharpener? Been doing a lot of domestic stuff recently and I'm getting fed up of sharpening all the chains and stuff by hand. Works well for a quick touch up but if it's clipped a nail, a stone or as the case was the other day, a concrete post hidden in around the back of an apple tree it's a long and tedious process. I also have the milling chains now for 74" bars etc and it's going to take an age to do those. 

 


Providing the convenience and quality you need from a workhorse, the 620-series high-volume saw chain grinder features a hydraulic assist clamping vise, eliminating the...

 

I will obviously get the 230v version. 

 

If there's something better for the ~£300 price point then I'll take any advice!

I get it, but the other one is cable. 

I'd go cable as it appears to be a bit easier to maintain. 

Love to know how you get on with it...if you do go for it..

I didn't realise they had one with a cable? I would prefer a cable as it's less to go wrong but the only one I saw was manual? It's a £4 difference between the manual and hydraulic

I bet it would be spot on. I'm struggling to part £300 for a decent grinder let alone £866 😂
