The timing of the launch of a simple clip-on sharpening system for chainsaws could not be better as the cost of domestic heating fuel is set for another price hike and sales of wood burning stoves are likely to increase dramatically.
Anyone who has used a chainsaw – electric or petrol – knows that simply touching a stone, metal or even soil can blunt the chain, making it impossible to continue sawing. The new PowerSharp system from OREGON will resharpen the PowerSharp chain in a matter of seconds. The chain stays on the saw, and you are back at work, cutting logs, in no time at all.
The purpose-designed PowerSharp chain and sharpening stone, retailing from under £25, are the heart of the system and are replaced, like a normal chain, when worn out. The secondary components, the guide bar and bar-mounted sharpener that are specially designed to work together, are for many users a one-off purchase and also start under £25. The average price of a load of logs for burning in the UK ranges up to £100.
PowerSharp is suitable for the majority of 12, 14 and 16-inch petrol and electric chainsaws in the UK including Stihl and Husqvarna. They are available throughout the country from Blount (UK) Ltd’s dealer network. Kits are also available in the United States and throughout Europe. Check it out on www.powersharp.co.uk.
