What do chainsaw sharpening services include?

Chainsaw sharpening services include clamping down the chainsaw, sharpening the cutters, and filing the rakers. On Airtasker, you can find specialists who can even provide the right sharpening materials. Chainsaw sharpening tools include a clamp or vice, round file, and depth gauge.   

Chainsaws tend to get dull over time. If you have to apply extra pressure to cut through trees or wood, then it’s time to get a chainsaw chain sharpening. Sharpening a chainsaw requires precision. This is why we help you find professional chainsaw sharpeners near you - put up the task today to find trusted sharpening services near you. Below is how a standard chainsaw sharpening service is done. 

Clamping the chainsaw bar to the work surface

First, the specialist places the chainsaw bar in a vice or tabletop clamp. This step keeps the saw from shifting during sharpening. Stability will ensure a consistent sharpening process. The specialist may remove the chain if a clamp is not available. But the specialist will need to be extra careful to keep the chainsaw steady while filing it.

Sharpening the cutters

Using a round file with the same diameter as the chainsaw’s teeth, the specialist slides the file across the cutter, sharpening every tooth. Your specialist can provide or source the round file for you. Check the owner’s manual or website to find the size of your saw’s chain. 

Then specify this size in your Airtasker listing. A skilled sharpener will file each cutter the same number of times at a consistent angle. This technique ensures consistent sharpness. With inexperienced hands, you risk throwing off the balance of the chainsaw. 

Filing the rakers

Rakers are the bumps along the chain in between each cutter. The rakers ensure consistent cut depth as the chain spins around the saw. This is why each raker should be filed to the same height.

For good measure, your specialist files down any rakers that sit higher than necessary. The expert places a depth gauge over the chain, then files down any raker that sits higher than the top of the depth gauge. The result is an evenly sharpened chainsaw ready for use. 

Refilling the bar oil reservoir

For finishing touches, the specialist refills the bar oil reservoir in the chainsaw. Aside from bar and chain oil, another known alternative is vegetable oil. Your specialist can recommend the best type of oil to use for your chainsaw. If you need extra help maintaining your home, Airtasker also connects you to tradesman services, assemblers, and plumbers near you. Taskers can do repair services such as lawn mower repair and washing machine repair.

I need to hire a chainsaw for a theatre production from the 29th June - 10th August. All it needs to do is start on stage and then turn off again - it will never be used to cut anything. Preferably an electric chainsaw. I am able to pick it up and drop it off again from wherever is convenient.

Chainsaw large timber sleepers into pieces

$50

Glebe NSW, Australia

25th May 2019

2 large hardwood sleepers (50cm squared (approx) profile, about 1.5m long) are in our yard and need chainsawing into pieces for removal. They have been used as retaining walls so they're actually a bit rotten and degraded so they're not as hard as they once were. They are really, seriously heavy and need slicing into pieces for removal. You bring your chainsaw and cut them up for us! Only need to cut it up into enough pieces so that it's easy to move, probably say cut each into 4 pieces? We have a skip bin so removal not required. Looking for this weekend if possible, or during the next 7 days. Thanks!

Darren was punctual, reliable and easy to communicate with. He went out of his way to make sure the job was done and was very professional. We would recommend him! Thanks Darren!
