Husqvarna File
« on: December 28, 2017, 07:52:32 PM »
Wondering if anyone has tried the Husqvarna file that files the tooth and raker at the same time and what you think of it.

There are several you tube videos on using the Stihl version, probably the same thing-different color.

Looks like my original post was translated. Maybe so more could understand it.

If I'm not mistaken, the Husqvarna Sharp Force tool is just a re-badged Pferd Chain Sharp. They do work fairly well, but they require removing the files and reassembling to switch from the left-hand cutters to the right-hand ones when sharpening.

Pferd also makes a newer version called the CS-X Chain Sharp. For this one, you just flip it over when switching from left to right. Stihl sells a version of this:  Stihl 2 in 1 Filing Guide.  I've got a couple friends who use the Stihl version of this. Both of them are experienced at hand-filing chains, but recently switched to this tool and are very happy with it. (I've not yet tried it myself.)
