Chainsaw Sharpeners and Files
If you've ever tried to use a dull knife in the kitchen, you probably realized it's very difficult to make clean cuts. The same is true when it comes to chainsaws -- to cut through thick materials, you'll need a chainsaw teeth sharpener to maintain the tool’s cutting power. The right chainsaw chain sharpener and file make quick work of getting a dull chain back into great shape so you can tackle tough jobs.
Chainsaw Grease Guns
Apply chainsaw grease to the bar's nose bearings with less hassle using a handy chainsaw grease gun. These tools let you get deep into the bearings and come preloaded with grease for easy application. Grease guns help prevent premature wear and tear, especially on the saw's guide bar noses.
It's impossible to operate chainsaws without the right bars and chains
. The appropriate chainsaw chain can make cutting easier and faster. An excellent choice for smaller chainsaws, a narrow kerf chain makes thinner, narrower cuts. These chains are ideal for jobs like cutting small branches and performing general landscape maintenance. On the other hand, low-profile chains make shallower cuts. With its lightweight construction, a low-profile chain puts less strain on the engine.
If you use your chainsaw for tree felling, beware that a tree that falls in the wrong direction could put you at risk of injury. Wedges help with felling trees in the direction you want to keep you and your home safe. After making a partial cut in the tree's trunk, simply position the wedge in the direction that you don't want the tree to fall and make your cut.
Projects that require a chainsaw can be fun yet potentially dangerous. Keep yourself protected with the right chainsaw safety gear. Start with a pair of safety goggles to shield your eyes from flying debris, then add a helmet that protects your head against accidental injuries, bruises and cuts. Look for a helmet with an integrated earmuff system that protects your ears from the loud noise of sawing and cutting. Finally, stay safeguarded against accidental cuts with safety chaps.
