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

Answer: What size chain are you running?

Err… dunno!


A question answers the 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 thinking it does not matter. 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. If you have used and handled a chainsaw for 20 years should you not know something about it?
