SOURCE: what size file to sharpen chain for 55 rancher

It depends on the chain you have installed on the chainsaw. You can look at the numbers stamped on the drive link side of the cutting chain and it should have a 2 digit number that correlates to the size.

The factory chain supplied with the #455 rancher was a .325" pitch 3/8" chain.

Here's a link to the specs for your saw with some useful info

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: Require a manual for an ''efco'' chain sharpener.

There are no "efco" chain sharpeners at Northern Tool or at efcopower.com. There is a Chinese made grinder with the Northern Tool name on it. It is a lessor quality copy of an Oregon model 511A. It is such a good copy that parts and the manuals are interchangable. The 511A manual can be downloaded here: http://www.oregonchain.com/pdf/accessories/511AManual_3Lang.pdf

How to sharpen chain saw chain


Hi

You need to purchase the correct diameter file for the size of chain you have fitted on your saw. Suggest also that you buy a Stilh file holder (this is a frame which holds the file, and acts as a guide to give you correct filing angle and depth, just a few dollars).

Do not file too much off each time, I give each tooth two files strokes only. You have to keep the saw sharp all the time, I sharpen every two tank fills of fuel.

Suggest you Google the subject, Oregon chain is a good make and will have details of how to sharpen

Good luck

I have a mac 435 2nd hand recently purchased can you tell me what size chain sharpener I require for it as don't have the Manueline.


SHARPING A CHAIN IS JUST A LITTLE HARDER THAN YOU MAY THINK, A PROPERLY SHARPENED CHAIN IS JUST PLAIN SAFER, BRING YOUR SAW TO YOUR LOCAL SAW SHOP AND ASK THEM HOW TO DO IT YOURSELF AND BUY THE FILES AND A SPARE CHAIN CUZ IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR GOING TO NEED IT, YOU MUST THINK SAFETY THESE THINGS DON'T PLAY ! ASK ABOUT CHAPS GLOVES HEAD GEAR.. I GET FIRST DIBS ON YOUR SAW IF YOU CUT YOUR HEAD OFF.. PLEASE BE CARFARE .. JAY THE PUMP GUY IN LONGWOOD FL

What size file do i use for a Ryobi chainsaw model PCN4545 to sharpen the chain


The standard chain file should fit it. It is about 3/16 dia. I found the dremel to work 10 times better, they have a little stone bit just for chains. Eventually, you have to take it in for sharpening, it will set all the teeth the same.
