Buffalo Tools ECSS Electric Chainsaw Sharpener
If you own a chainsaw then you know that the teeth on the chain get dull from chewing into trees. How long it is between the times you have your chain sharpened will depend on what type of wood you have been cutting, the age of the chain, and whether the chain was properly filed the first time.

Why You Should Choose Buffalo Electric Chainsaw Sharpener
Having a dull chain is a safety hazard, and it reduces the life of your saw. A dull chain causes the saw to have to work harder and that means the saw will last a shorter amount of time. A sharp chain allows the wood to be cut without the saw motor ever getting into a bind and that means the motor will last longer.
Homeowners who have fireplaces, or who like to have outdoor fires, often have chainsaws. Most of these individuals carry their saws to the saw repair shop when they need their chain sharpened. With an electric chainsaw sharpener you can sharpen your own chain, save time, and money.
