Filing equipment

For a chainsaw to operate effectively, safely and with precision it is vital to have a sharp chainsaw chain. How often it needs to be sharpened depends on how frequently you use it. You'll need a round file, a flat file and a filing gauge to file a chain. We also recommend that you use a stump vise to hold the bar, leaving both hands free for filing.
