The Granberg G1012XT is a professional chainsaw sharpener weighing just 1.8 pounds and measuring 9 x 4 x 7 inches in size. Inside, it’s fitted with a powerful grinder that spins at a whopping 24,000 RPMs. To withstand the high speeds, the grinder features a heat-resistant polycarbonate casing, a Kevlar® reinforced driver belt, and high-speed micro ball bearings.

Here’s what we thought:

This is a great product that works just as advertised. It features quality craftsmanship. Plus, it’s easy to set up and use. We found it very easy to set the correct sharpening angles and grinding depths by simply adjusting the dials and thumb nuts on this machine.

It’s also very portable and features an 8-inch power cord with alligator clips that can be readily hooked up to a 12-volt battery in case you are away from home.

Features

  • Adjustable to fit all chain sizes
  • Designed to hold all stone sizes for regular chain pitches and lowering depth gauges
  • Chainsaw sharpener is made of cast aluminum, molded polycarbonate, and zinc-plated steel
  • 12-volt, 24,000 rpm grinding speed
  • It includes a 5/32-inch, a 3/16-inch, and a 7/32-inch stone for sharpening normal chain pitches
  • Contains calibrated swivel guide markings to set and hold correct sharpening angles
  • Integrated features allow users to set file height and tooth length

In addition to that…

Once set up, the Granerg G1012XT takes only a few seconds to sharpen each tooth and file each raker--even for a novice. With time, sharpening your saw with this device should take you less than five minutes and save you a lot of money in the process, considering the tool’s affordability.

We recommend using their Kool-Grind stick lubricant which increases the lifespan of the stones and makes the grinding process smoother.
