How to Sharpen Your STIHL Saw Chain
Click on each of the photos below to follow the proper steps for sharpening your STIHL chain saw.
- Clean the saw chain.
- Check the saw chain for cracks and damaged rivets.
- Replace damaged and worn chain components and adapt these parts to the remaining parts in terms of shape and level of wear - rework accordingly.
- If your saw chain is carbide-tipped, STIHL does not recommend manual sharpening. These (Duro) saw chains are especially wear resistant - for an optimal sharpening result, STIHL recommends using a servicing STIHL Dealer.
