Blount International has taken one of the biggest frustrations of wood cutting off the table with its expanded line of PowerSharp on-the-saw sharpening equipment.
Sold under the Oregon brand, PowerSharp kits are now available for nearly every chainsaw on the market and for most of the saws already in use.
The portable, easy-to-use system includes a PowerSharp top-sharpening chain, a bar-mount sharpener, and a special guide bar. Together the components provide a fast, simple method for sharpening a dulled chain within 3- to 5-seconds in the field.
The PowerSharp starter kit, which includes all of the needed components, sells for around $75, and replacement chain and sharpener stone kits for the system retail for under $40. The bar-mounted sharpener and guide bar, also packed together, sell at around $40.
The system is available through many home improvement and hardware stores, along with chainsaw service stores.
