You can resharpen the cutting teeth of your chipper-tooth chain with a round file on your own. But a word of caution: not every saw chain is the same. The tool you use needs to match the respective saw chain, because if the wrong file is used, it can diminish the cutting performance of the chain. We explain below how to find the right round file.
The depth gauge is a part of the cutting teeth of a saw chain. It determines how deep the cutting tooth gets into the wood while using a chainsaw and the amount of wood planed off. The depth gauge setting should therefore have the proper setting to ensure peak cutting performance. We explain below what to look for.
Only those who understand how a chainsaw works can make the best use of it. In this article, you will learn about the construction of STIHL saw chains and how they function.
A chainsaw can only truly turn its power into peak cutting performance with a sharp chain. We explain below how to recognise the signs of a dull saw chain.
When Andreas Stihl opens his engineering office in Stuttgart in 1926, forestry work is still hard and difficult. Trees are felled with an axe or handsaw and then transported to sawmills. Only there are chainsaws used. Stihl, graduated in mechanical engineering, has an idea: the saw should be carried to the tree, and not the tree to the saw.
The 128 palm trees on the main avenue of “Barbosa Rodrigues” are the emblem of the botanical garden of Rio de Janeiro. For many years, young people from disadvantaged social backgrounds have been making sure that the palm trees and the entire park can be enjoyed in all their splendour.
In February of this year, we launched our very own SoundCloud channel. We started with a sound quiz. After that, we made all the sounds of our tools that we had as recordings available through a Creative Commons licence.
Since the introduction of E10, anyone who mixes the fuel for their chainsaws using petrol from the petrol station and two-stroke oil has no doubt wondered whether E10 is also suitable for use in chainsaws, clearing saws and other similar tools. We have summarised the key facts about E10.
