HAVING A SHARP CHAIN
Over time, chains will lose their edge. Having a sharp chain is necessary for the best cutting experience possible. Different lengths of chain fit different bar sizes, and different types of chain offer various benefits. For example, carbide-tipped chains last 10 x longer than regular chains, while smaller-gauged chains are designed to fit the majority of STIHL Battery Chainsaws.
