Whether it’s for the fireplace in winter or the fire bowl in summer, sawing your own firewood is much more fun than buying ready-made firewood. We have compiled a few essential tips on working with a chainsaw to make the job easier.
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.
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.
What you need for good cutting performance is a high-quality saw chain. Customary Swiss precision ensures that the saw chains are produced to the highest quality standards. A number of processes have to be carried out before a saw chain is ready for action. We took a look at how a saw chain is made, from the raw materials right through to the finished product.
Since 1974, the plant in Wil, Switzerland, has been manufacturing chains for chain saws. The subsidiary celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2014, and public figures were among the people in attendance. Let’s take a closer look at the plant and its recipe for success.
