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 fits different bar sizes, and different types of chain offer various benefits. For example, carbide-tipped chains last 10x longer than regular chains, while smaller-gauged chains are designed to fit the majority of STIHL Cordless Chainsaws.
While STIHL SHOPs offer chain sharpening services for your convenience, you are more than capable of sharpening your on chain at home provided you have the right equipment and sharpening technique. You can learn more about chain sharpening by clicking the link below.
