Sharpening Chainsaw



Whether you learn to do it by hand or buy a saw sharpening attachment keeping a sharp chain is #1 in my book for keeping your saw running properly. The more pressure you have to exert to cut makes the saw run hotter, the bar wears out faster, the chain wears out faster and the sprocket wears out fast plus it's just plain harder on you to run the saw. In my timber cutting days I would file my chain every time I filled the saw with gas. Here is a helpful video for sharpening a saw. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkSYov5jcO0

What would cause a new chain saw not to cut


Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but it sounds like you are saying your chainsaw is newer and runs fine, but it just isn't cutting wood well?

If that is the case then it means the chain wasn't sharpened correctly. Lots of guys do it at home and don't file down the raker teeth in front of the cutter heads, so the teeth don't grab into the wood and just nibble at the wood and make fine sawdust. It is always best to get the chain sharpened at a saw shop first so you can get an idea of the correct angles and depth of the rakers etc. After that you can try to match the saw shop for a while with a round file to take off ragged edges unless you have a decent professional saw sharpening unit.

My poulan 18 inch chain saws blade turns but only cuts in about an inch and won't go any farther. It's two days old and worked fine cutting the first 2 trees down.


It sounds like the chain does want sharpening, it depends on what you are cutting ( type of timber, dirty timber,burnt timber etc ) as to how long before it needs sharpening, if the chain comes into contact with the ground below the tree it will lose its edge instantly.

My chainsaw won't cut through timber, it will only scorch it. Is it possible that I have the blades the wrong way round? If so, I don't know how to turn them inside out. I've had this problem for ages...


From your description of what is occurring, you are probably correct that the chain is installed in reverse. To verify take a look at the individual cutters on the chain - are the sharpened edges pointing in the direction of the chain rotation? When looking down on the chain bar (the "cutting arm"), are the cutters facing toward the tip of the bar? If not, the chain is backwards. If the chain is installed correctly, but you are still not cutting, the chain is most likely extremely dull and needs to be resharpened.

I'm not familiar with the specifics of the Bosch chainsaw. I live in the US and the Bosch saw is generally not available here. I recommend you consult your manual for instructions on removing and installing the chain. If you do not have a manual, you can call Bosch UK and they will send you a replacement.

Hope this helps.

What angle should the chain for the wild thing be sharpened?


Realy depends on what you are cutting, 25/30 degrees is the norm for most soft to medium timber.

When I sharpen my chain with the timber tuff electric sharpener the chain cuts on an angle what am I doing wrong??


I will wager if you place a protractor on the bar you will find the right and left links are at slightly different angles (one side gets more bite). It only takes a little difference. The usual suspect is the guide on your sharpener. Some grinders require an offset because the wheel is offset more to one side than the other.
I hope you found this helpful.

Need true chain/bar size for my husqvarna Model 254 chainsaw


Maximum bar size of 20" but would recommend 18", if it is running sluggish, check compression, if low replace the piston, if it is 135psi or more then make sure the airfilter is clean and then tune the carb and make sure you get good revs and throttle response throughout the rev range, use the typical carb adjustments from the owners manual from the Husky web site. This is a 5hp saw and is capable of cutting some big lumps of hardwood so no excuses on the power front
