Try On-The-Saw Sharpening

New chain design allows sharpening top of cutter tooth for quick retouching.

If you're tired of the hassle of "chain sharpening downtime" with your chainsaw, Blount International has a new proprietary chain and sharpening system that allows you to touch up the chain within seconds -- while the chain is on the saw!

The new PowerSharp system on Blount's Oregon brand will be available in the U.S. and Europe in the next few months and will be distributed through hardware and home improvement stores. The system comes in a variety of configurations that will fit most saws on the market as well as models already in use.

Blount, Int.'s Oregon brand is developing PowerSharp, a system for on-the-bar sharpening of its new chains. The system will be available in the U.S. and Europe later this year.

The key to PowerSharp is a "top sharpening" design cutter and a bar-mount sharpener that allows the operator to sharpen the chain with a few seconds of run time against specially designed sharpening stones.

The starter kit, which includes all components in one package, will carry an MSRP of $75 to $80. Individual components will be available at lesser prices for those using the system.

For more information on the PowerSharp system, call (505) 653-4692.
