Buffalo Tools ECSS Electric Sharpener
It also cannot be used to maintain the rakers as you need a flat-edged grinding wheel. You’ll need to buy a separate depth gauge and flat file.
As with the other electric bench mounted chainsaw sharpeners, there is a bit of time needed to set up before you can start sharpening. Once set up, the angle is always consistent, which makes for a well-functioning chain.
This machine is a lot lighter than the Oregon 410-120 grinder and the Oregon 510-120 grinder, making it ideal for smaller workshops or if you need to be able to store it elsewhere between uses.
Unlike the Oregon electric chainsaw sharpeners, this sharpener does not have a variety of grinding wheels. Instead of changing wheels for different pitches, you need to play with the sharpening angles when working on various chains. This is more confusing than using other chainsaw sharpeners but can be learned with some practice.
- Short time to sharpen the chain
- Works on all chain pitches
- Lightweight compared to other electric mounted grinders/sharpeners
- Does not maintain rakers
- Steep learning curve
