Question: What size file do I need for my chainsaw?

Err… dunno!


A question for a question. Most people using a chainsaw do not have an understanding of what size chain they are using. And sadly most will not invest the time to find out. In some ways it doesn’t matter but it does mean you will always be limited in your knowledge and you’ll never get the full use out of your chainsaw.
