How to Tell When the Chainsaw Chain is Worn?


The chainsaw is one of the most versatile tools around. They are capable of various tasks, such as trimming heavy bushes, trimming branches and limbs, cutting down trees and removing stumps. Although your tool is powerful, the real muscle behind it is a sharp chainsaw chain. Without sharp chains, felling timber will become exhausting, inefficient, and completely dangerous.

Although some chains are more durable than others, even the best chains on the market lose their acumen and eventually become boring.

Poor cutting performance

The sharp chainsaw chain easily penetrates the wood. When the teeth of the chain are sharp, the tool pulls itself into the wood to be cut and spit out long, chip-like sawdust as it passes through the object.

If you find yourself trying to force the tool through the wood by applying pressure on the tool, and find that the chain is spraying sawdust instead of sawdust, then your chain needs to be sharpened well.

Uneven cutting and unstable performance

The sharp chain saw cuts cleanly and accurately and can pull itself smoothly through the woods. If the cut you are going to make is deeper on one side, it is because the tooth is not flat or one side is blunt. In addition, please pay attention to the "feel" of the tool during operation. If it bounces back to you or makes a rattling noise that prevents you from making accurate cuts, you may need to run in or even replace the chain.
