What is PowerSharp® ?

PowerSharp® is a unique, proprietary saw chain and sharpening tool that gives the user the power to sharpen their PowerSharp® chain, on the saw, on the job, in seconds.

The system:

The PowerSharp® system comprises four components that work together to provide a fast, simple and portable method of sharpening PowerSharp® saw chain.

1. PowerSharp® chain:

  • PowerSharp® Chain has unique, top-sharpening cutters and is low kickback per ANSI B125.1 and CSA Z62.3.
  • Chisel-style cutters, ramped depth gauges and ramped guidance drive links provide a smooth and efficient cutting action and good chip flow.
  • The diamond-coated dresser link resurfaces the sharpening stone, ensuring flat cutter to stone contact
  • Look for the PowerSharp® diamond stamped on each cutter link. Only genuine PowerSharp® saw chains can be used with the PowerSharp® system.

2. Sharpening Stone:

  • The sharpening stone fits inside the bar-mounted sharpener. Matching the saw chain life, the stone should be replaced at the same time as the PowerSharp® chain.

3. PowerSharp® Guide Bars:

  • Lightweight and manoeuvrable, the PowerSharp® guide bar is designed as a direct replacement.
  • Alignment and latch pinholes for the proprietary sharpening tool ensure perfect alignment between the cutter and the stone.
  • Small nose radius helps to reduce kickback energy.
  • Available in three lengths for the majority of saw mounts.

4. Sharpening Unit:

  • Clamps over the end of the PowerSharp® guide bar when sharpening.

The four components of the PowerSharp® system are sold in two pack:

  • One contains the specific PowerSharp® guide bar and sharpening unit
  • The other contains the specific PowerSharp® chain and sharpening stone.

To get started with PowerSharp® you will need both packs. The chain can be sharpened between 5 and 15 times, depending on the conditions. It must always be replaced at the same time as the sharpening stone.
