CONFESSION: I love using power tools. There's just something, I dunno, powerful (sorry!) about being able to assemble stuff, all by myself.
Also, it's why he doesn't let me use his chainsaw. Smart man.
Anyway, I always thought that, once a chainsaw chain got dull...that's it...no more chainsaw.
I was contacted by the good folks representing PowerSharp (because, apparently, they read my blog) and learned about their new system that allows you to sharpen the chain on chain saws, right on the chain saw.
Thanks to Hurricane Irene (no gratitude, intended) hitting our part of Coastal New Jersey (real HARD!) we got to test it out, for real. Want to see?
First, here's a quick video to show you exactly how the PowerSharp works:
A tree in our backyard uprooted and was literally torn out of the ground. It landed in our neighbor's yard. Thankfully, we both have really BIG backyards and there was no damage on either side.
FINAL VERDICT: My husband was able to cut and clear the tree from our neighbor's yard in an afternoon (the clearing part took longer!)
