How To Sharpen a Chainsaw: Husqvarna 450 Rancher

I needed to sharpen my chain on my Husqvarna 450 Rancher…. like really needed to sharpen it. It was feeling a bit dull a couple of weeks ago when I dropped an old walnut tree for my mother in law. Then, I went and did that tree beehive cut-out, and that did it. By the end of that one, it was obvious, she was dull. This video details how I went about sharpening it.

In the past, I generally replaced chains. I did not really know how to sharpen them. My ignorance was expensive. I just assumed it was a complicated task to sharpen a chain. I was incorrect. I did have to go to several videos and resources to find all of the pieces of the puzzle though. I think I have included everything a newbie would need to sharpen their own chain.

  1. Great vid, really informative. I was going to say it looks very laborious, but as you showed and said, it’s a ten minute job when you’re all set up right. I never knew about the hardwood/softwood gauge either!

      Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was. I spent about $15 for the file kit. I figure I will get several times of sharpening per chain, so it pays off in a big way. Thanks!
