If the cutting performance of your chainsaw begins to decrease, it could mean that the saw chain needs to be resharpened. We have compiled a list of significant signs of a dull saw chain for you.
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.
