Why does my chainsaw chain dull so quickly?
Your chainsaw blade gets dull so fast because your chain is hitting the ground, the tree is filled with dirt, and/or the bar is bent. These all contribute to the chain getting dull quickly. If you’re cutting through dirty wood, the chain will dull quicker than cutting clean wood.
Is it worth sharpening a chainsaw chain?
Using a dull chain saw to cut down a tree makes the job much more difficult. It is worth the time to pause and sharpen your blade as it dulls. This fixed base sharpening restores the angle of the blade to the exact specifications while filing by hand is never 100% accurate.

What angle should I sharpen my chainsaw chain?
The sharpening angle will generally be between 25° and 35° – the harder the wood, the greater the angle. To maintain the correct angle, we recommend that you use a sharpening grid or a filing gauge as an aid.
How long should a chainsaw chain last?
The lifetime of a chainsaw chain has no fixed limit and depends on usage and maintenance. The chain should last many years; 5-6 years should be no problem. However, if the chainsaw chain is used properly and taken care of, it can last way longer.
