Keep your chain sharp for fast cutting

Research shows that STIHL saw chain files last longer and remove debris faster than some other files on the market.

STIHL saw chain files are designed to help you keep your chain sharp with minimum effort. Available in several diameters to match the exact size of your saw chain gullet.

Made of heavy-duty polymers, our file handles are just as durable, easy to hold and tough to damage. Soft-grip handles are also available for flat or round files.

    Simple, fast, easy to use, RAZOR sharp chains
    I have used my MS290 for 20 years cutting firewood around the farm. I always felt that a resharpened chain could never cut as good as a new one. After buying the 2in1 I changed my mind. I run a 20" bar with Rapid Super chain and the 2in1 puts a "cats claw sharp" edge back on with just a few strokes. Its so easy to easy use, 5-10 mins and your ready to go. The handle is marked so you get the proper orientation and it files the "depth gage tooth" perfectly. Its money well spent, I highly recommend it!

    OMG.... No more dull saws for me
    I can't believe how easy this sharpener is to use. The pictograph on the sharpener shows you how to do it. 3 or 4 stokes on each tooth and you've sharpened that AND cut the rakes to the correct height. It's that simple. With my 20" bar on my 291 it's like a 5 minute job to touch it up before every job. Now I always have a sharp saw. As time goes on, the files are replaceable too!

    Makes sharpening idiot proof
    I own a company and we use saws fairly often and my employees are not able to freehand sharpen a saw to save their lives with this they can all do it. Since the angle and direction is on the device they won’t run dull saws anymore. As a sixty year old operator doing it for near fifty years even I like the ease of sharpening and setting the depth gauges in a single pass. No more sending the chain in to be ground just file it on site and go back to work.

    GREAT for Those Born Without "ThREE" HANDS !
    Knock 'er in; tighten 'er down; dress 'er up; take 'er out; fire 'er up; back to work! Simple as that. Just by lookin' at it , it might work as a replacement tip for your cattle prod! Always multi-tasking. Use your "walkman" tool to tighten 'er down...simple. Enjoy your work day with another great Stihl tool!

    Great tool for out in the woods!
    I've owned a STIHL Stump Vise for the last twenty-five years and use one often in the woods to hold my saw while sharpening the chain. It pounds into the stump easily,and pulls out just as easy. Very durable, easy to use, must have piece of equipment for the serious chainsaw user.

    Does what it was made to do
    Not much to say other than it does what it's made to do. I like the hollow handle that allows you to drop a spare spark plug into.

    Quality Made Stihl Tool
    I am a novice. The Depth Gauge Tool came in the pouch with the flat file and round file with guide bar. I'm able to follow the instructions, however I believe that a video should be created by Stihl to demonstrate to the novice all the wonderful features this tool has and how to use them. Safety is tantamount to the health of the arborist and forestry industry. Understanding the how and why of this tool to convince the owner/user to replace/service a saw chain in a timely manner will boost ... read more confidence in the user to utilize this and other Stihl products.

    Great saw
    The easy start is great. I ruined my old saw when I put regular gas in it. My friend had an easy start saw. I got to use it and loved. When I replaced my old one I purchased the easy start. It has plenty of power and it is easy to use. Love it and I would recommend it perspective buyers.

    A MUST-HAVE to Keep Your Guide Bar Channel CLEAN !
    In some ways this inexpensive tool is just as valuable as your Guide Bar. You should carry it in your saw's Tool Pouch & clean out the oiling channel every time you pull the Chain off. The newer Bars have inadequate diameter oiling holes, resulting in a "dry Bar" condition regardless of how much you turn-up the Oil Delivery setting. A dirty channel will only exacerbate that problem! And, a screwdriver will not reach down to the bottom of the channel. Most shops tend to forget to file the ... read more rakers when sharpening your chains. This tool is a must-have to ensure the correct amount is filed off.

    Strong STIHL for Razor Sharp Teeth
    I’m not sure what hey have done at STIHL to make the files but they seem to cut better than the ones ya pick up in the box store. They sharpen quicker and last a bit longer in my experience. I’m using the files on .375 RS & PM & PMM chains. They work great on all of them! A bonus is hey drop right into my 2 in 1 kit as well!! Worth the extra money!

    This my BACK-UP Pack!
    Great quality for a great price. I keep a pack of these with my Saw Sharpening Kit. Perfect quantity to get you through the season. A 10-pack would end up rusting on you!

    Makes sharpening easy
    I bought this after trying to file my chains by eye or use different tools with diffrent methods. I saw it on youtube, went to a local dealer, but it wasn't in stock, so he had it ordered. Now I'm able to sharpen or touch up my chains in about 15 minutes. Happy with the product and it doesn't break the bank.

    It Works Better Than Your Eyesight !
    The Stihl File Guide, when used with the FF1 File Guide Holder, will produce a uniformly sharpened chain with the proper angles required. It takes all of the "guess work" out of correctly sharpening your chains. DVD: The picture is worth a thousand words! SUGGESTION: Stihl should produce an online tutorial for ALL products here on the Stihl.com or StihlUSA.com sites. This would eliminate having to provide a DVD with very basic products. Having access to a tutorial for major products sure ... read more would reduce a lot of confusion on the part of consumers and headaches for servicing dealers! Just post a link on the Instructions or Owners Manual.
