It is available in two kits: a specially designed guide bar and bar-mount sharpener; and a purpose-designed PowerSharp chain with a diamond-coated link plus a sharpening stone that are installed on the guide bar and bar-mount sharpener.
Once the bar-mounted sharpener is placed on the guide bar, the pressure pad is pressed lightly at full throttle. The sharpening stone ensures the chain is sharpened in 3-5 seconds (up to 10 seconds on electric saws). The operation can be repeated as needed throughout the life of the PowerSharp chain.
The PowerSharp chain includes a diamond-coated link which helps reshape the sharpening stone.
The PowerSharp is suitable for the majority of branded petrol and electric chainsaws available in the UK, including Stihl and Husqvarna. The current range is suitable for 12, 14 and 16-inch saws. The specially designed PowerSharp bars have twin guide holes which allows for easy attachment of the bar-mount sharpener.
The Oregon brand is owned by U.S.-based Blount International, and both kits are available from Blount (UK) in Tewkesbury and from their dealer network.
