Powersharp Chainsaw Sharpener: Review and Giveaway

In South Louisiana, we live by seasons.  Crawfish season, Crab Season, Strawberry Season…..Hurricane Season.  Hey, they can’t all be bliss, right?  One thing you need handy just in case (knock wood) is a good chainsaw.  This is in the event one of your lovely trees becomes a yard ornament in the midst of the storm and you have to cut yourself a path out of the house.  No, I’m not kidding. At any rate, I was so excited to have my husband test out the Powersharp Chainsaw Sharpener!

Most people think that when the chainsaw chain gets dull, it’s time for a new chainsaw.  Or yet, you have to take the time to have the chain professionally sharpened, and that’s not efficient either.

Ever heard of Powersharp?  From the website:  “The PowerSharp® saw chain has 3 key features that make it different from all other saw chain. First, the cutters are top sharpening, making it possible to sharpen them with a simple attachment. Second, a diamond-coated dresser link “dresses” the sharpening stone, resurfacing it for optimum honing angles. Finally, the cutters work together with the depth gauges and guidance drive links to stabilize the cutter as it contacts the stone, ensuring a consistent edge across the entire cutting surface.”

My husband never needs an excuse to play with “Man” toys, so he was more than happy to test out the Powersharp system.  He noted that the system was easy to attach to the chainsaw, and it only took a few seconds to sharpen the chain.  After taking  a test cut, he decided to sharpen once more, and from there it was like he had a brand-new chainsaw!   Now I can assign him some more projects around the yard. Check out how easy it is by looking at the product demo video here. You can easily find a retailer near you, or purchase online or be sure to check out the product finder so that you get exactly the system you need.


One winner will receive the Powersharp system for a consumer grade chainsaw (make sure your chainsaw is compatible before entering)!

  72. We took down the magnolia in our back yard and a bradford pear in the front yard because the roots were interfering with the foundation and the drain line, respectively. The stumps are still there and one of the first projects we’d do with a sharper chainsaw is chop those down lower to the ground.

    I live in Pensacola. After Ivan, I was at work (TV news) but my husband was out clearing limbs out of the flooded street with our neighbor. A chainsaw does come in handy!

  73. Katrina stansbury says:

    I would finally cut down the tree growing. In the middle of my climbing rosebushes!

  74. We have a lot of trees in our backyard that need to be trimmed and this sharpner would keep our saw nice and sharp!
